Size chart: reduce returns in your fashion listings

Check out how to add a chart to your listing and get a better position in the search results.

When buying apparel online, many users often have questions about the product measurements. The size chart is the best option to reduce questions and offer buyers accurate information about the product.

What is a size chart?

It is an equivalence or size chart to add to the listing. This allows you to offer buyers the exact measurements to help them choose the product that meets their needs.

Buyers can check the chart in the product listing by clicking on "Size chart".

What details should be filled out in a size chart

  • The chart name so it can be easily identified.
  • The sizes that may be linked by variations and which are shown in the listing for the buyer.
  • In the fashion size charts, you’ll be able to choose whether to complete the body measurements (e.g.: waistline) or the garment measurements (e.g.: sleeve length).
  • In the footwear size charts, you will only be able to load the body measurements (e.g.: foot length).

International equivalencies

When you begin listing your products on Mercado Libre, you must consider that you'll attract buyers from around the world. Different regions and websites may have varying ways of displaying fashion products size.

To ensure a seamless shopping experience for your customers, it is essential including international size equivalents in your listings. This helps buyers quickly find the right fit.

Keep in mind you only need to add these size equivalencies once.

How to add a size chart

When listing, you have the chance to create a new size chart or add one that has been used before and which is compatible with your product.

It is possible to add a size chart in four situations: 

  1. When creating your listing, we will ask you to add a size chart that already exists or to create a new one.
  2. When editing a listing, you can link or change the chart. Once you choose the chart you want to use you have to click on “Confirm” so that it’s linked to your listing.

3. If you use the Bulk editor online, in the "Size chart" column it is possible to select the chart adequate to your listing or create a new one.

4. If you list in bulk from an Excel file, you'll have to enter the code of your chart. To do so, click on "Go to Size charts", complete the product details, copy the chart's code and head back to the Excel file to paste it in the corresponding cell.
