Style Guides for the Musical Instruments Category

Updated 2 months ago ​by Merch Transformation Change Management

We’ve recently launched a new WEBSITE for Content Standards.

Here you will find answers to questions about Image Specifications, Image Types, SEO, Copy Guidelines, Rich Media, CCPs and more.

The images, copy, attributes, and rich media you provide are critical in helping our customers make their purchasing decisions.

You need to use these style guides to accurately set up and maintain your items in the Product Type Groups below for the Musical Instruments category.

Product Type Groups (PTGs) are a group of similar Product Types with like attributes.

  • If you have questions about which Product Type your item should be, please reach out to your merchant engagement lead.
  • If you have trouble determining which PTG your Product Type falls under, please refer to this spreadsheet and filter down to your Product Type to see which style guide you should look for.

Additionally, all the Product Types included in each guide are listed in the second column. If you do not see your Product Type listed, please check back regularly to find your style guide. New and updated style guides are added weekly.

To learn how to effectively use a style guide, please complete our Style Guide 101 course in the Retail Link Academy.

In Item 360, you can now download a Rich Media maintenance spreadsheet to provide asset URLs for 360 spin images and videos. All other rich media modules will need to go through a third-party content partner.
