Adding Photos to Your eBay Listing

A picture is worth a thousand words and this is so true when you are selling products on the internet.

Having said that, the photo that you put up could also say “This person does not know how to use photos for selling on eBay” so here are some tips for getting the best possible photos for selling on eBay as well as photos that show each point – after all a picture is worth a thousand words!

I have used photos for each tip so you can read the tip and also see what I am talking about. To create this series of photos I just used an ordinary digital camera, set on auto. I have not touched up the photos or edited them – they are exactly as you see them.

Take a look at this first photo – what is wrong with it? Can you tell straight away what is being sold?

Item with too many other things around

As there are too many other things in the photo the eye is drawn away from the product, so the first tip here is remove anything else in the photo except the item.

Here is another photo – What is wrong with this one?

Item With a Bad Background

The background of the photo is distracting! Again the eye is drawn away from the product so the second tip is do not have distracting backgrounds!

Here is another photo – What is wrong with this one?
