WALMART IMAGE REQUIREMENT CHANGES AND WHAT THEY MEAN FOR YOU

Walmart recently decided to make some changes to their image requirements for the fashion category of their online store, setting their required aspect ratio to 3:4, or “Portrait Mode.”  

While they haven’t explicitly stated the reason for this change, one possible explanation could be the increased focused on mobile adaptability in the e-commerce world; a 3:4 aspect ratio is significantly more mobile friendly than other aspect ratios, which would make for a more user-friendly experience when shopping from your phone.

If you have any products in Walmart’s fashion category, you’ll need to replace any images that aren’t in the proper scale or aspect ratio.  If you don’t, you’ll be running the risk of your products’ images being distorted or even not being published on Walmart’s site at all.

Any products within the following categories are affected by this change:

  • Apparel (Men’s, Women’s, Children’s, Baby’s)

  • Jewelry

  • Watches

  • Shoes

  • Accessories

  • Travel/Luggage
