Shopper Annoyed by Non-Matching Images inside eBay Listings
I've got many issues with eBay as both a buyer and a seller. But today I wanted to address something I recently noticed as a buyer.
When I am looking at a particular item, there will be a set of photos below the large photo where you can click each photo to enlarge it. Recently, I noticed that eBay has begun inserting photos of items from stores such as Walmart and others I've never heard of before, RIGHT IN BETWEEN the large photo of the red top I'm checking out and the 6 other photos of the same item that are below the main photo.
Last night this happened to me as I was looking at a red top. Directly below the red top were about 6 photos of BLACK tops, all different and from Walmart and other stores. Then directly below these black top options, there were the 6 photos of the red top I was checking out.
What gives? I find it more than irritating that they are doing this. I can't be the only buyer who feels this way. My hubby only buys and he said he saw that too and it bugged him as a buyer also.
I sell too, and I'm sure my items have Walmart items inserted in my photo area too.
How much more IN YOUR FACE can these jerks get? If they think I'm going to click on those other items, they are wrong. In fact, I got disgusted and shut down eBay for the evening. It sure doesn't make me want to buy more items - and I'm already buying very little due to my total disgust with eBay in general.
I wondered if others were noticing the same thing. I'm already ticked that they are putting ads all over the place, but this is totally over the top, IMHO.
No name, no face, just waiting to be purged...
