eBay’s Picture Standards Policy comes into effect soon…

Reminder Picture Policy

Shortly eBay will begin to enforce the new picture standards policy that they outlined in the recent seller release.

What changes are happening?

EBay are enforcing standards in image size and quality.

The new policy includes:

  • All listings must have at least 1 image.
  • No stock images for used items.
  • No borders on images.
  • No text on images.
  • No images or graphics over images.
  • Images must be a minimum of 500px on the longest side.

Why are eBay enforcing this policy?

EBay have created this policy and are enforcing it to create a better buying experience. The more detail a buyer can see of an item the more likely they are to make a purchase; it’s in a seller’s interest to follow eBay’s policies.

The policy also protects buyers from poorly represented products.

When will this be enforced? 

For eBay.com (USA) this will be enforced from the 1st of July.

For eBay.co.uk (UK) this will be enforced from Autumn 2013.

How can I check if my images breach the policy?
