Amazon Product Photography
Amazon Product Photography
Selling products on Amazon? If so, we probably don’t need to stress to you the importance of high quality product photography in your listings. It is a proven fact the better quality the images, the more angles and detailed views that are being offered, the higher the chance of converting the shopper. This holds especially true for when selling used or unique items as there may be some discrepancies in the product or some special features you wish to highlight in the product images.
In addition to standard product images, we have recently seen Amazon allowing sellers to implement 360 Product Photography into their listings. 360 Product Photography is the method of capturing a series of still images over a 360 rotation, then composing these individual frames into an interactive 360 product view. Based on feedback we have recieved, Amazon has been able to increase conversion rates since the implementation of 360 product photography.
Over 5,000 customers in 40 countries trust Iconasys for their Product Photography Requirements. Here are a few:

Why Better Image Quality will Help Selling on Amazon
Although outsourcing to a studio will almost always guarantee professional product images, the costs associated with it are often overwhelming and doesn’t make sense for the Amazon seller. Take control of your product photography and shoot at your own discretion, on your own timeline and as many images as required.
Why Outsourcing Amazon Photography is not a Viable Option
When selling on Amazon, better quality product photography equals increased sales revenue/conversion rates. Often users will compare product first on price then next on product imagery. High quality product images will set the online seller apart from the competition and increase the chance of getting the sale. Shutter Stream is the perfect tool for Amazon product photography and is a investment that will provide guaranteed ROI. Create professional quality images in seconds – regardless of experience.
