Welcome Lowe’s Suppliers!

Too many home goods retailers fall victim to product pages overrun with overlooked copy, incomplete physical details, and unclear product images. When words fall flat, they lead to confusion and abandoned shopping carts.

We say show don’t tell. The simplicity of 360° & 3D user experiences emphasizes product details without cluttering your product pages. Providing multiple image angles increases the visual information and assurance consumers need to purchase your products online.

Lowe’s Hosts 360-Degree
Product Images

Customers needed more product data and information in order to make a purchase decision. To address this issue and the growing demand for online shopping, Lowe’s wanted to find an e-commerce solution that would suit the needs of its customers. Over the past few years, Snap36 has equipped Lowe’s with high-quality digital product content that bridges the gap between the online and offline customer experience.

Now it is required that suppliers selling products on Lowes.com have 360 degree product content to ensure that buyers are satisfied. We are now working with a multitude of suppliers to help deploy 360 degree imagery onto both Lowes.com and their own e-commerce sites.

How Does It Work?

Project Planned

Suppliers that work with Snap36 retain ownership of all of the image assets created. We will recommend a project model based on your goals and timelines, whether that’s photographing products in the Snap36 Chicago studio, setting up a mobile 360 degree photography studio in your own facility, or purchasing the 360 degree automation equipment.

Products Shipped and Sorted

For a studio project, you can ship your products directly to Chicago, where our full-service merchandise team will take over. Otherwise, we’ll bring a mobile studio or ship our equipment to you. Our team unpacks your products, catalogs them, and spot-checks for product or packaging flaws that could later interfere with photography. And during check-ins, we offer additional services such as product weights and dimensions.

Products Prepared

The best way to prepare your products for photography is to remove any product packaging and gently clean if necessary. The product will be placed on a tabletop as it would naturally sit, and the majority of the product will be visible. If a product needs to be propped to achieve the desired orientation, the props will be removed in post-production.

Photograph Product

All images will be photographed to a 255 white background with no shadow. To produce a 360 degree image, we capture 72 photographs at 15-degree increments on 3 different planes. This creates the ‘up and over’ effect you see when spinning an image online.

Post Production

If for some reason Snap36 is unable to photograph products to a 255 white background they will have the item placed on a white background to comply with industry standards. For all products needing propping Snap36 will have those props removed. 

File Naming & Deliver to Lowe’s

Individual JPG files must follow the specific recommended file format in order to be delivered to Lowe’s. Snap36 will automatically name your files in the correct format to ensure speedy delivery.
