The best eBay image dimensions for each case

Getting your pictures right on eBay is of critical importance as everything should work towards the goal of selling your products. We take a look at the different requirements and limits of eBay images.

eBay photo size

The minimum photo image dimensions are 500×500 pixels and the maximum dimensions are 9000×9000, height and width respectively.

The best advice for ebay image size is to use photos that are 800-1600 pixels on the longest side.

eBay cover photo size

For your profile photo the best format is 1200×270 pixels. Make sure the image is no larger than 5MB as eBay doesn’t like heavy images. I suggest cropping an image to the above format before upload.

Image formats allowed on eBay

The image formats that are supported on eBay are:

  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • TIFF
  • BMP
  • GIF

My advice is to use the JPEG image format for eBay, it’s a format with compression and built for showing photos well.

Golden rule for eBay images

The images you put on eBay should be a realistic photo of the product. It’s not allowed to put other products in the picture or start manipulating the product. Also take care not to show your hands and arm holding the product, the product should be depicted as neutral as possible.

Here are thorough guidelines by eBay about how your images should look.
