Image Types and Pricing
With Photo Studio, you can choose to get a 3-photo pack of each of your items from different angles, as well as a 360 .spin file that allows customers to view the entire product.
Learn more about adding product images to Square Online for more information on adding any of the following image types to your Square Online site.
High resolution 3-photo pack
Get three photos of your product from different angles that are retouched and optimized for online selling for just $9.95 per item. Images come as .jpg files on a white background and as .png files on a transparent background.
Interactive 360 photo
Interactive and engaging, 360 photos let customers rotate, pause, and even zoom in on a product image to help them feel confident in their online purchase. Get one interactive .spin file as well as an .mp4 video file of the spin for just $29.95 per item.
Note: If you’re not using Square Online, we suggest you embed the file on your third-party website by following your provider’s instructions. We don't offer .gifs or the individual images for these files. We’ve found that these can significantly slow down page load speeds, so we recommend either embedding the .spin file onto your site or using our first-party solution.
