Shoot product photos from various angles
When you shoot your item in detail and from various angles, your buyers will shop with confidence and it will help turn more of your listings into sales. Make sure you include lots of product photos in your listing, and remember—you can include up to 12 photos for FREE.**
Follow photo guidelines
Follow the eBay photo guidelines to ensure that your photos best represent your items, attract interested buyers, and help reduce cases where a dispute needs to be resolved. And that's a good thing for both buyers and sellers on eBay.
Photo quality requirements:
- Use at least one picture.
- Photos must be at least 500 pixels on each side. Make them 1,600 pixels on the longest side and shoppers can use the enlarge/zoom feature when they shop.
- Don’t use photos with borders, text, or added artwork.
- Use watermarks to indicate ownership or attribution only—not for marketing purposes.
- Stock photos are allowed as your primary photo only if you’re listing a brand-new, unused item.
Mobile-ize your photos
With millions of people shopping on eBay mobile, it’s crucial your photos show up correctly on phones and tablets. This means uploading your pictures directly to eBay. While using a third party to host your photos is allowed, the photos may not display correctly on your shoppers’ phones and tablets.Learn more about taking great photos
