Chapter 5 - Use of Stock Photography

While shoppers expect listings for used condition items to provide unique photographs documenting both the good and bad details of the item’s condition, expectations concerning new condition items are quite different. Most new condition products available in multiple quantity from eBay or Amazon are marketed using stock photography.

Be aware of restrictions when using stock photography. For example, eBay Image guidelines state, "Catalog and Stock Photos are not permitted unless the item is in brand new condition or belongs to product categories such as Books, Movies, Music, or Video games."
