If you want to get the most out of your eBay account and ensure that the products you are selling are presented in the best possible light, then you should think about setting up your own external eBay image hosting account.
In this article, we explore the positives of setting up your own image hosting account and how Img.vision can give you the creativity and flexibility that eBay itself is unable to do.
Why do I need eBay Image Hosting?
We'll quickly explore why you need additional image hosting besides the integrated eBay image hosting.
1/ eBay photo hosting is restricted to 12 pictures
If you have a lot of images you are severely limited in showcasing your product.
2/ Your customers analyze your item description
Potential customers read and analyze the item description for more information and trustworthiness, don't miss this opportunity to add product images there.
3/ eBay official way to display photos is basic
eBay image hosting isn’t as sophisticated as you might think and it doesn’t give you much room for maneuver in terms of getting creative with your photos.
What is an image hosting company?
An image hosting company allows individuals and companies to upload their images to the servers of the image host. Those hosted images are now accessible on the world wide web. You can share and embed the images anywhere online by copying the embed code, or even in some cases by drag and drop (such as with eBay).
Why should I choose Img.vision to host my images?
So now you’ve decided that an image hosting company sounds like the right option for you, let us explain why Img.vision ticks all of the right boxes.
1/ Secure image delivery
In 2017 eBay required all images referenced from your item description to use secure https links. That's the default case when copying or dragging and dropping images hosted at Img.vision to your item listing.
2/ Keep your images organized with folders
Img.vision is set up so that you can organize your photos into folders, this will help you to keep your photos organized and itemized in relation to specific products.
