eBay Tweaks Photo Fees for Selling Cars

eBay gave car sellers some good news on Monday. Currently it lets sellers provide up to four photos with their car listing for no additional fee, and charges 15 cents per additional picture, up to 24 pictures total.

Beginning in mid-January 2015, eBay will let sellers add 12 pictures to their vehicle listings for no additional fee.

The company explained, “In the past eBay has allowed up to 12 free pictures in all other categories while vehicles listings only allowed 4. This 8-picture increase will bring vehicles into alignment with the rest of our core categories, help increase seller success rates, and reduce fees.”

Sellers will still be able to add up to 24 photos to their car listings – they’ll pay 15 cents per photo after the first dozen, up to 24 total.

“eBay vehicles sellers are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity, and add more photos to your new listings in 2015,” eBay wrote in its announcement. “Multiple, high-quality photos are a great way to make your listings stand out and increase your chances of conversion.”

eBay explains the fees for selling a car on this page. Fees vary depending on how many cars you sell in a calendar year, and dealers have the option of selecting a “national vehicle subscription.”
