360° product shots are an excellent way for web merchants to impress new customers.
360 Product Photography is becoming mainstream. They communicate the entirety of the product’s appearance in a single piece of media. As customers ingest pictures faster than words, 360 product shots can simplify, expedite and improve the online sales experience.
Some retailers have, and more will embrace the technology as it helps the customers to make a buying decision. Home Depot USA now requires 360 product shots as a condition of business. Moreover, Amazon.com now accepts 360 to promote products.

Self-Hosting vs. Paid-Hosting for 360 Product Photography
Publishing 360 product photos can be done in several ways. You can host it yourself, or on a specialized 360 third-party server.

360 Product Photos are not always shareable
Some 360 applications include green screen to impose products into backdrops.
Social media sites like Instagram, Pinterest, Google Image Search and Facebook do not or are not well suited to publishing 360 rotating photos. For this reason, conventional pictures and video are still king for sharing content. This is not a bad thing. Customers do not need to see every angle of a product to buy it.
Good product photos that demonstrate the item should be all you need to make the sell. If you really need to communicate specific product features, infographics are often more effective, searchable, shareable and (often) less expensive to make.
