Great pictures help make eBay a place people want to shop. Pictures often make the sale—especially for shoppers on mobile devices. That’s why back in 2012 we asked all sellers to meet a few basic picture quality requirements that will be enforced beginning July 1, 2013. That day is approaching, so be sure your photos comply with the following picture quality requirements on all new, revised, and relisted items:

  • All photos must be at least 500 pixels on the longest side of the picture.

  • Photos cannot have borders.

  • Photos cannot have seller-added text or seller-added artwork.

  • When you list a used item outside of books, movies, music, and video games, you cannot use the eBay catalog stock photo in the primary photo position. You must upload your own photo.

If you have listings with pictures that violate these requirements, update them now so they won’t be blocked from relisting or removed. Learn more about eBay’s picture quality requirements and get great tips for photos that help your items sell.
