5 reasons why adding more pictures to your product listings will increase your sales

All eBay listings can now include up to 12 images for free and to maximise sales you should be aiming to use at least half of those. As eBay themselves say ‘using more pictures makes your listing more attractive to buyers’. Here are some of the reasons why more pictures will generate more sales.


This eBay seller should consider adding more images to boost sales.


Important details can be highlighted

With multiple images you can use one or two to focus in on labels, brand names or features that will help show quality. Think about what you’d check if you were holding the product in your hands and then take close-up pictures of it for your customers. If you’d like to take pictures to highlight your products’ best features here’s a guide to taking great pictures with just your smartphone.


You can give the ‘store experience’

The main advantage of buying in store is that you can pick up and item and look at it from different angles to check the quality. Giving that option on your eBay listing through pictures will help customers feel confident to buy.


This eBay seller has the right idea by including lots of photos.


You’ll look better than your competition

Many people still aren’t making use of eBay’s 12 free images. If you’re the only one with extra pictures then you’re going to convert sellers when they land on your listing. Similarly if you’re the only one not using multiple images those sales will go to people who are!
If you’re serious about looking better than the competition then you should also consider ‘clipping’ your images. Click here to learn more about image clipping and why it will help boost your sales.


Multiple angles prove you have the product in stock

Disreputable sellers and scammers are the blight of eBay sellers and buyers alike. Anything you can do to convince sellers you’re reputable and can fulfil your promises will drive sales.


The seller has taken detailed shots from various angles.


Scale can be illustrated through multiple images

Being able to see a product from different angles allows customers to get a sense of product scale, which is especially important for them to know whether the item will fit in their house, bedroom or shelf.

Customer Reviews


“When one of our competitors revamped their website we realised that we had to up our game and improve our product photography. This meant re-photographing all our products and placing them on white backgrounds. ClipItQuick.com assisted with removing the background from our product images which saved us an incredible amount of time and made our products look great. We’re now a regular customer and cannot fault their service.”
James Bryant, eBay Store Owner


“We’ve used several services similar to ClipItQuick.com for removing backgrounds from our product images but I found that the professionalism and fast turnaround of ClipItQuick.com set them apart from the competition. They have never failed to deliver on their promises which is ultimately what keeps us coming back each time we have image clipping requirements.”
Hugh Fischer, Photographic Studio Director


“Quality is essential to us. We produce high end photography for print. This frequently requires us to remove the background from product photos. It’s something we’ve always managed in-house previously as I’ve found it difficult to find image editors who can deliver the level of quality we require at a reasonable price. We were recently convinced to try out the image clipping service offered by ClipItQuick.com and, needless to say, we no longer edit images ourselves as the price and quality offered by ClipItQuick.com means it’s financially nonsensical to keep doing this work ourselves.”
