Do I have to use images hosted with Frooition for my listings?

Modified on Mon, 04 Jul 2022 at 11:30 AM

You can host your images wherever you wish, and insert them into your Frooition listing template by simply pasting in the relevant URL to the image into the 'Add Picture' area at stage 2 of the listing process.

Due to eBay's policy updateyou will need to make sure that your images are hosted on a secure server. This means that the URL will need to be HTTPS://. If the image is not secure, eBay will block it from being viewed on all sites and on all devices.


You can either use self-hosted images or Frooition hosted images, not a mix. If you use a mix of Frooition and self-hosted images the listing profile will not be accepted by eBay and will return an error message.

1. When in your eBay overview, you will have a toolbar on the left side of the screen. In order to find your image URL, you will need to click into Media Hosting. 

2. Once you are in the Media Hosting tab, you will then need to navigate through until you find the image that you want to add to your listing. Once you have found the image, click the file and you will be put on a page that looks like this:

3. You can copy the image URL by clicking the small icon next to it, it will then be copied to your clipboard to be pasted. From here, you will go back to your live listings and set up your listing. On step 2 of the listing setup, the 'Product' page, you will have an option to 'Add images from your own hosting'. 


4. Once you have clicked into this, you will be shown a pop up screen where you will have to paste the URL that you copied earlier. Once you have posted the URL, click 'Update' for it to add the image to your listing.

5. Once you have completed the previous step you will see that the image has been added to your listing.

Now that the images are added from Media Hosting, you can proceed with your listing.
