Common Questions About This Portal

Why is Coles requesting this content?: Digital channels are an increasing part of how our customers shop the Coles range. Our customers research, build shopping lists and buy product in our mobile and web platforms. Product images and data are an essential part of giving our customers the information they need to make their product choices.

What happens if we do not provide this content?: Coles currently does not list products on the web platform which do not have any images. Sales also tend to be lower for products that do not have information, especially for new products, as customers do not get the information they need.

Can I use any provider to produce images?: Yes, all that Coles require is images to be of the standard required for our ecommerce site.

Can I use any provider to give Coles our data?: Yes, all that we require is for the Coles upload template to be completed accurately and consistent  with the content format already on the Coles web site. This can be downloaded here. Any organisation can complete this form.

Can I provide content for non food products?: Yes, but this can only be done by populating the upload template.
