Missing product images

It can take up to 24 hours after adding an image for it to appear on the website.

Note: Uploading an image does not guarantee that it will be displayed on the product detail page or search pages. Amazon uses algorithms to determine display images. Follow the guidelines provided in the Product image requirements to ensure your product images adhere to Amazon file and content specifications.

Troubleshooting images in Seller Central

The most common reason images go missing from Amazon is that they did not meet the Product image requirements.

The Add a Product feature allows you to upload a product image as you create a new product. After you create a product, you can use the Manage Inventory feature to provide a new product image. You can also use the bulk image upload feature. See instructions for image upload in Add product images.

To learn more about image requirements, view the topics listed in Image troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting images with inventory files

An inventory file allows you to specify a location from which Amazon retrieves a copy of your product images. However, errors in your inventory file can block Amazon from successfully retrieving the product images.

If you use inventory files to manage your products, do the following:

  1. Check your inventory file processing reports for errors. (More info)
  2. Modify your inventory file to correct any errors contained in the processing report.
  3. Upload your modified inventory file.
  4. Repeat until your inventory file is free of errors.
  5. Allow 24 hours for your images to appear.
