The biggest difference between selling a product in a store and selling it online is the buyer's ability to interact with your product. When selling on the competitive Amazon marketplace, it's important to have quality photographs that show your buyer exactly what they may be purchasing. And since they can't pick up the product to see for themselves, photos become even more crucial for conversions.
To a shopper, the quality of your photos is going to reflect the quality of the product you're selling. You want to use the opportunity to instill trust in the buyer, which helps set your listing up for success.
