Using photos to help describe the items you are selling provides customers with useful information, and is especially helpful for describing the condition of used and collectible items. You can upload up to 6 photos to display as part of each listing.
The photos will be displayed on the offer listing page. A thumbnail of the main photo is displayed in the condition column of the offer listing page. When a customer clicks on the thumbnail, the full size photo will be displayed, along with thumbnails of the other photos of your item. For more information about the offer listing page, see Learn how to List a product.
There are three ways to upload photos.
Add photos of an item to your My Current Listings page using either Seller Central or Listings Loader. In your seller account, from the Inventory tab, click on Manage Inventory to view your listings. In the Actions column, click the Actions arrow next to the listing for which you would like to upload photos. From the drop-down, select Edit Details. In the Offer tab, scroll down to the Photos section.
Photos of your item should be used to depict the characteristics of a specific, unique used or collectible item in your inventory. They are not intended to be photos of a new or generic product.
Listing photos of your item must meet the following requirements, which are different from Product Image Requirements
