BucketLynx helps you organize your image files. If you have a Business or Agency plan, BucketLynx can also automate adding product image links to your Amazon Product, Amazon Custom Text, BigCommerce, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Magento, Shopify, SquareSpace and Walmart bulk upload files.
To use BucketLynx:
If you have a Business or Agency plan, you have these addition features:
*While XLSX formatted files are recommended, you can upload XLSM files. However, if you upload XLSM files, the macros may be removed or fail to function properly after download. You may be presented with warnings when Excel attempts to read XLSM after download.
A "bucket" is the name you assign to a group of image files. For example, you may elect to create buckets for each specific product category you sell. When you create a new bucket under the Business or Agency plan, you can check a box that instructs BucketLynx to create a default set of Amazon Product image file sub-folders. These Amazon Product sub-folders are used to organize product image files and relate them to specific columns in Amazon Product template files.
Amazon Product image sub-folder names are matched to the column names in your Amazon Product template files as shown in the following chart:
For example, if you are selling hardware through an Amazon store and you have a template file for modern door knobs that you have named "modern_door_knobs.xlsx", you might name your bucket for this template file "Modern Door Knobs". The bucket name does not have to match the template file name and you can have multiple template files in a bucket, but we'll keep things simple in this example.
When you create the "Modern Door Knobs" bucket, you will see a check box asking if you want to create Amazon Product image file sub-folders. Checking this box and pressing "OK" will get the "Modern Door Knobs" bucket created along with the Amazon image sub-folders. Your product image files should be uploaded into these image sub-folders if you plan on having BucketLynx populate your Amazon Product template files for you.
Only Amazon uses these sub-folders so sub-folders are not allowed if you are populating any other upload template files.
If you are using the Basic plan, or you are not planning on having BucketLynx populate bulk upload template files, you can give your image files any name.
For Business and Agency plan accounts using the template populate feature, BucketLynx uses the product SKU column in your template file to find and relate image files to your products. In this case, you should include the product SKU in your image file name.
For example, if your product SKU is "123456", you should name your file something like "123456_main.jpg" or "Widgets_123456_red.jpg".
The largest uploaded file size allowed by BucketLynx is 50mb.
Amazon recommends product image files be at least 2560 pixels on the longest side.
BigCommerce recommends product image files be at least 1280 pixels on the longest side.
eBay recommends product image files be at least 1600 pixels on the longest side.
Facebook recommends product image files be at least 1080 x 1080 pixels.
Magento recommends base product image files be no more than 1200 pixels high.
Shopify recommends product image files be at least 2048 pixels on the longest side.
SquareSpace recommends product image files be at least 1500 pixels on the longest side.
Walmart recommends product image files be at least 600 pixels wide by 800 pixels high.
Navigate to the bucket or image sub-folder where you want to upload files and press the "Upload Files" button. A Drag-and-Drop box will be opened. Drag your files into the Drag-and-Drop box and they will be uploaded to your bucket.
It's that simple.
If you have a Business and Agency account and plan on uploading product template files, these files can be named anything. Amazon Product template files must be placed the main bucket and not in a sub-buckets.
Business and Agency account users can take advantage of a major time-saving feature where BucketLynx can automatically populate Amazon Product, Amazon Custom Text, BigCommerce, eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Magento, Shopify, SquareSpace and Walmart bulk upload template files with URL links to the product image files stored in your bucket. BucketLynx uses the product SKU column in your template file to find and relate image files to your products.
Once you have uploaded all of your product image files and your product template files, find the product template file and press the Populate () button. You can download the populated template file by pressing the Download () button.
