  • When selling on eBay, stick to natural lighting with little to no shadows. Keep the photo aesthetically pleasing in natural light, and it’s more likely to be bought.

  • Take advantage of eBay’s photo editor options located under picture when you post it..

  • Make sure your item is always in focus, so every detail can be seen.

  • Get as close as possible; this isn’t the time to show off backgrounds or ambiance.
