Add images to a product and its variations

In order to create a positive customer experience while buying products on Wish, it is important that customers can see default images of a product and also related images of its product variations/SKUs. It is strongly recommended that all product variations have linked images for providing a better shopping experience on Wish.

There are three ways to add default image for a product and related images for different variations of a product.

  1. Manual
  2. API
  3. Upload a CSV File

Method 1: Manual

Adding default/ main image to a product

To add a default image to a product while creating a new product manually, please follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to the Merchant Dashboard and please navigate to Products > Add New Products > Manual



  2. Enter details about the product. Please upload an image for the product under Main Image section as shown below.



  3. Provide all other information for the product and click Submit.

Your product now has a default main image on Wish, and a customer will be able to see the image of a product even before selecting a variation.

If you would like to edit the main/ default image of a product manually, please go the View All Products page. Find the product whose default image needs to be changed, click on Actions > Edit Listing.


On the Edit Product modal, please choose an image that you want as a default/ main image for the product as shown below:
