There are some services that have popped up to remove the background of your pictures to make them ready for Amazon.  Keep in mind that there are a couple of categories that are much more strict about the background than others -- namely clothing and shoes.


I've used ClippingMagic.com and it's not too bad.  If you have a bunch of photos to be cleaned up or a bunch of products to list, I'd probably go Dave's route and hire someone to do the work.

Hey Damon.  I ran into a similar issue.  At one time I actually thought I could get quality pictures from my phone.  But I quickly realized that was a farce.


Getting good images is very important.  I'm sure you've shopped on Amazon and you can spot good and bad images and you know how that can impact your buying decision.

So... I invested in a professional photographer.  I created a project on eLance and was specifically looking for someone with experience taking pictures for Amazon.  It probably ran me about $100 but it's a requirement to play the game in my mind.  Without good images I won't sell and in most cases it's a one time expense.

How did I execute it.  I logged the job and had several people offer bids.  I asked for samples and most were very good and any of them would have worked.  I ended up selecting a guy with a mid price offer who's profile and website I liked.  Product images can be boring, but he had some creative spins or angles (small stuff but still cool), that caught my eye. 

I sent him a sample (very small product), and got high quality images back within a couple days.

Not intended to be self serving, but here's my product web page with a couple images and my FB page with even more (you can easily spot the Pro pics).

Hope that helps.  I'm still pre-launch so by no means an expert but happy to share from my experience.

What do you guys do for pictures on Amazon? None of my pictures ever meet the standard of totally white background.

Comment by Greg Vance on July 30, 2015 at 7:14pm

Hi Julia & Sutton - Thanks for the Fiverr recommendation. Very helpful. 

Can you tell me any more about what package you bought and what it ended up costing? Is it possible to see the finished product you received? That may have been in the thread earlier and I missed it.

That guy Julia recommended on Fiverr is very good and his price is an excellent deal. I wish I knew about him earlier.

I got one on Elance.com.  I've been happy with them.

Hi Damon!

I use a very talented designer on Fiverr.com.  His name is Danny. I have used his design services three times and delivers quality work:  https://www.fiverr.com/design_line36/design-an-eye-catching-logo-wi...

Hope this helps!  :)

Where do you guys get your logo designs done?

Hi Dave,

I manufacture children's jigsaw puzzles and import materials from a couple of suppliers in Hong Kong.  I found the companies via Alibaba.  Just a note, I only order 200 to 250 units of whatever I need at a time.  So, there are manufacturers/trade companies that will do small quantities on Alibaba.  

Comment by BeckyWest on May 31, 2015 at 7:41am

I am getting ready to place an order through Aliexpress which allows smaller orders.  I am testing some products to see if they sell then I may order from Alibaba.  Also, I am currently looking for private label products made in the
