When you have similar items with different variations, you can group them under a single, fixed-price listing. This type of listing is for closely-related items that have their own, distinct variations. Thus, you can offer a buyer a particular product with different options such as size, color, width etc. to choose from. These are Listings with variations.
Upload all the different angles of your item – the top, bottom, front, back, right-side, left-side and even the insides!
Take close up pictures of the various item features to prove the authenticity and condition of the item. For used and damaged items, be sure to take clear photos of any scratches, dents or flaws.
More photos means 6% more views and 12% more sales!
Artsy photos look good but this is not a photo contest! Take photos of the actual product. Period.
It’s fine to include measurements in your photos to describe the item especially if it’s difficult to type out with words. Put a ruler next to your product to ensure the size is accurate.
Real and accurate product photos help to reduce buyer returns and refunds. Remember, they’re protected under the eBay Money Back Guarantee policy.
Take large, clear, and accurate photos of the item for sale. If your hand is shaky, use the image stabiliser option on your camera or buy a cheap tripod.
Always zoom in on your photos to check if it’s sharp. This will allow buyers to zoom in on the smallest details like the serial number. Now they can’t complain that you’re trying to cheat them.
The recommended photo size is 1000 x 1000 pixels. If possible, make it 1600 pixels so that it is extremely clear on mobile phones.
Do not add graffiti and watermarks to your photos. It’s distracting and looks unprofessional.
Keep the background white and clean to ensure your item stands out. Don’t insert text or borders. Keep the pictures simple to attract attention to the right details. Only display what you’re selling.
Photos that don’t accurately represent your item is bad for business. Take this image as an example, some buyers will think they’re purchasing a surveillance service with a fully furnished living room. Avoid any misunderstandings and make it 100% clear what you are selling!
