I am using FindProducts to see if my SKUs have a match in your catalog. If I find a product match, I am relying on the StockPhotoURL for the product when listing items using ProductListingDetails. However some of my items listed without images - why?

Here is a sample UPC that got listed without the image - 726947109056

Sometimes catalog products may not have a stock photo associated with them. So in order to avoid listing with an image, do the following -

  • Check the FindProducts response to see if StockPhotoURL is returned. If this field is returned it means that the product has a stock photo associated with it. 
  • Alternatively if DisplayStockPhotos comes back as true you can be sure that the product will have a StockPhoto associated with it

For the UPC - 726947109056 that got listed without an image

You will see from the FindProducts response for this UPC that DisplayStockPhoto is false and StockPhotoURL is not returned, indicating that a stock photo is not available for the product. Therefore when listing with this product, you will need to supply your own images.
