  • Here is more explanation for the "Dean" of eBay Education, Jim Griffin. I now see what the reasoning is and from where the confusion comes.


    I will still teach that sellers should use their own picture. If they are using "item specifics" a "stock" photo may be used, but if it has credit posted as eBay says, I would not want to use it. Why send a customer to my competition?

  • By the way, watch out for an excellent phishing e-mail supposedly coming from eBay about current listings you may have and the picture not loading properly.

    It came to my correct registered e-mail (it is not any I use here),included my full name, (like all legitimate ones from eBay include) and was for a real & active listing.

    It was so good that when I switched back and forth between a real one and this one, I could not see a difference except for topic.

    Luckily I never click on e-mail links to go to eBay, PayPal or most other sites. When I went to "My eBay" through the website, there was no e-mail for that subject and there was no problem with the picture either.
