Using sellers’ images in our catalogue

Using sellers’ images in our catalogue

To improve how we promote your items using the eBay catalogue, we’re going to start using seller images and product information where needed, as per our user agreement.

What’s changing

  • From 10 July 2017, we’ll start using seller images and product information where needed.

Improving our product catalogue

The eBay catalogue is a database of the millions of products sold on our sites. We’re constantly building on that data to make eBay a better marketplace for all. Many of the innovative ways we promote our sellers’ items, such as themed browse pages, or product reviews, wouldn't be possible without our catalogue.

You can also use our catalogue to create more accurate listings, faster, with better guidance through the listing process, and improved visibility.

As per our user agreement, we’re going to start using seller images and product information in our catalogue.

You don’t need to take any action. If you would not like to share permission to use any of your images or information, you should remove them from your listings before 10 July 2017.
