Hello SaleHoo people,

I was just wondering if I had an item up for auction and I had only the FREE picture but a potential buyer is asking for more pictures of the item. Can I send more pics outside of the eBay realm? If I send them via my personal email address and attach a .zip file or something of the like.

Would this go against the Terms of Service? Just looking for some advice on the situation.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi sirius35,

There are no indications whatsoever from eBay that sending additional pictures through your email address is not allowed. There have been sellers doing this and they have shared views on what to look out for when this is done.
