Walmart Marketplace has quickly become one of the top online retail channels to sell and buy on. As their online market has grown, so have the platform’s capabilities and requirements for sellers. One of the most notable changes to selling on Walmart is the update to image requirements. Walmart Marketplace is updating how fashion category images are displayed on Walmart.com. Previously, product images would need to be uploaded in a square format, and now, images are required to be uploaded in portrait format, specifically a 4:3 ratio.
As a result of this change, listings in a number of apparel and accessory categories will need to be updated, including:
- Men's Apparel
- Women's Apparel
- Kids Apparel
- Baby Apparel
All product images in these categories need to meet these new formats or risk being unpublished from Walmart.com. If you’re looking to sell on Walmart Marketplace, ensure your product images are up to current standards with this guide.
What are Walmart’s image requirements?
Walmart recommends that sellers upload a minimum of 4 images for each product listing to ensure the best possible customer experience.
All images used on Walmart Marketplace must follow the following guidelines:
- Products must be in focus, professionally lit, and photographed.
- Images cannot show accessories that do not come with the item.
- Must not violate our Trust and Safety standards, especially by being offensive or
- For listings with zoom capability, images will now need to be in 4:3 portrait format, and at least 1500 pixels wide x 2000 pixels high.
- For listings without zoom capability, images will also need to be in 4:3 portrait format, and at least 600 pixels wide x 800 pixels high.
Walmart says that the 4:3 portrait aspect ratio is a strict requirement, and images uploaded in any other ratio will cause distortion when displayed in the new site design.
All images will also need to be 1mb in size or less, and in RGB color mode. Walmart accepts JPEG, JPG, PNG, and BMP file formats.
If you sell products that will not fill up the entire height of the portrait mode space (such as sunglasses), center the item in the middle of the image. Shoes are an exception and will need to be centered near the bottom of the image.
