Hello,

I am a new seller on eBay and have identified a few dropshopping wholesalers for my eBay store. Obviously, a key to selling is having great photos. How do I implement stock photos to reflect high quality images on my eBay selling page?

Thank you,

Luke

This one is always a popular question we see and if you're not taking your own pics, then you are kind of limited with your options.

Clear background pics give you some freedom if you want to do some water-marking with your own background branding. Most basic graphics programs will usually have enough power to do basic manipulation like this, so no big investment needed and that can add some professionalism to an otherwise very ordinary image.

So that might be an option you can have a play around with

Cheers

Thanks for the advice. If I am using the dropship method I never actually touch one of their products, which doesn't allow me to take photos. How would I get the stock photo from a wholesaler or drop photo. I understand I could take my own photos when I actually have the products, but if I don't have any inventory then how do I start posting the photos for the first time?

Thank you,

Luke

Drop-ship suppliers will usually supply you images of their products, quite unusual if they don't. What some people do is buy one of everything that are going to sell upfront. This allows them to test the quality first, but also to take their own pics as well, so that's an option if you wanted to do it that way also.

If for some bizarre reason the supplier won't provide images, well I think I would seriously question if they are worth dealing with firstly. If you still wanted to go ahead, then do a stock Google search and see if you can find images there that are suitable for manipulation.

Cheers

Just to clarify, what platform are you speaking about. Is it a SaleHoo Stores e-commerce platform or some other?
