We get it! Finding images and descriptions is a huge pain. That's why our platform is built with a shared metadata library that we're constantly expanding, which allows you to load photos or descriptions previously entered by Run Free and other stores as a starting point. Then you're welcome to customize as much as you like for your store.
Adding items unique to your store is easy too, simply drag and drop photos and enter a description.
What is the Shared Metadata Library?
In a perfect world, every item that's listed in your store will have a selection of beautiful, complimentary pictures and a well-written description to provide your customers with the most pleasant, simple, well-informed buying experience. With most e-commerce solutions, the reality isn't quite that rosy. If an item has an image at all, it's stretched, and the descriptions are often non-existent.
At Run Free, we've pre-loaded a database with tens of thousands of carefully curated images and descriptions. Plus, we capture and store all the images and descriptions that our member stores upload for their virtual storefronts in that same database. This database of images and descriptions is the "shared metadata library". Here's how it works: When your inventory is automatically pulled into the Run Free platform, it will go look in our shared metadata library for any images and descriptions that match the SKU of each item in your inventory, then auto-upload it into your storefront. That way, the number of pictures and images you have to actually load yourself is practically zero.
