I have a question about putting professional photos on EBAY. I have just started out selling and only just started using Auctiva today to make my auction listings professional - I'm not sure how it all works yet! How do you transfer photos taken into your auction listings to make them professional?

Also, I am very confused about dropshipping. I have registered with FragranceNet which i found on salehoo and they dropship. There is a link on their site to download the datafeed which is all the info you need to put on your EBAY listing for dropshipping. The datafeed contains a whole heap of mumbo jumbo about the fragrance including a http link for the photo of the fragrance except you cant click on it. Im not sure how i am supposed to get the info and photo from there onto EBAY?

Does anyone who dropships know the process of doing this please?

Hi Grace,

If you are having trouble using FragranceNet's data feed best to contact them directly about it so they can assist you from their end.

Just in relation to making your images more professional that the regular generic drop shipping ones, many people actually buy in one of each product they are selling to take their own pics.

Even if you don't do anything more other than upload them, your images will already stand out from the other drop ship images. However if you have a computer graphics like Corel, Photoshop or some other program, you can also ad information to your images to give your listing a magazine like feel.

You don't have to go crazy and completely overdo an image, but a graphics program can really help you bring your images to life, as well as of course as you're whole listing template.

You're really only limited by your own creativity, or that of a good friend :)
