Recommendations on image quality in fashion

With the following resources you can search items according to their image quality certification status (CERTIFIED, NOT_CERTIFIED or UNDER_REVIEW), and see the conditions for improving the image of the publication. In this way, you will improve the sellers' experience by getting better quality fashion publications. This resource is available for Mexico, Argentina and Brazil.


Recommendations for fashion publications

  • Complete the technical sheet for the item.
  • Use gender and branding attributes to find the size guide to associate with your publication.
  • Review the expected genders by country, using the /catalog_domains/MLA-SENAKERS/attributes/GENDER.
  • Upload all the required attributes, as well as variations.
  • Identify if any quality requirements are not complied with.
  • Confirm if the domain has attributes configured for the size guide. When you find an attribute of type GRID_ID and GRID_ROW_ID you will recognize that for this domain the size guide is required.

  • Requirements for fashion images

    You must use quality images to have better positioning in the search listings according to the product:

  • Dresses and rompers
  • Baby clothes
  • RUnderwear and beachwear
  • Footwear
  • Tops

  • Bottoms
  • Find more fashion recommendations in the Seller Central.

    Search for items by certification status

    To identify if the publication has been through the quality certification processes, you should use the /picture-certifier/integrator/items resource. This resource will allow you to search by "status", being able to identify whether a seller’s publications are not certified (NOT_CERTIFIED) or certified (CERTIFIED) or items that are under review (UNDER_REVIEW).

    Note:
    Whether the request has mandatory parameters such as "seller_id" and "status" as well as optional parameters such as "categoryId" and "offset" / "limit", which if not sent will be taken as "default" values: offset=0 and limit=500.
