To use the Gallery Plus feature, you must include this field and set its value to
The Gallery image will be the first URL passed into the first PictureURL field, so if you want a specific picture to be the Gallery image, you should make sure you pass the URL for this picture in the first PictureURL field.
When revising a listing, if you disable the Gallery Plus or Featured Gallery feature by including the GalleryType and setting its value to
Gallery, the original feature fee for either of these features will not be credited to the seller.
Some PhotoDisplay options can result in listing fees, even when the item is relisted. If you are relisting an item that was originally listed with a PhotoDisplay option, and you do not want that PhotoDisplay enhancement in your relisted item, you need to specifically remove PhotoDisplay in your RelistItem call (or RelistFixedPriceItem, as applicable) by setting PhotoDisplay to
None. Use VerifyRelistItem to review your listing fees before you relist an item.
Sellers can have up to 24 pictures in almost any category at no cost. Motor vehicle listings are an exception. The number of included pictures in motor vehicle listings depend on the selected vehicle package (see Fees for selling vehicles on eBay Motors).
Note: If a URL contains spaces, those spaces can be replaced with
%20. For example,
https://example.com/my image.jpgmust be submitted as
https://example.com/my%20image.jpgto replace the space in the image file name. However, a semicolon character (;) cannot be replaced with
%20, so a semicolon cannot be a part of the URL, as an error will occur. The Gallery image will be the first PictureURL in the array of PictureURL fields.
Note: All images, whether they are hosted by EPS or self-hosted, must comply with eBay picture requirements, including the requirement that all images must be at least 500 pixels on its longest side. If the image does not satisfy the 500 pixels requirement, the listing may be blocked. For more information about other requirements and tips for adding pictures to listings, see the Adding pictures to your listings help page. To specify multiple pictures, send each URL in a separate, PictureDetails.PictureURL element. The first URL passed in defaults to be the 'gallery image', and will be the first picture that is shown when a user lands on the View Item page.
If a listing uses a single, self-hosted picture (except in the case of a multiple-variation listing), the picture will be copied to eBay Picture Services (EPS) and the PictureDetails.PictureURL value returned by GetItem will be an EPS URL.
For VerifyAddItem only: You must include a picture even when using VerifyAddItem. If you don't have a image file, you can use the following fake eBay Picture Services URL (https://i2.ebayimg.com/abc/M28/dummy.jpg) with this call.
For ReviseItem and RelistItem only: To remove a picture when revising or relisting an item, specify PictureDetails with all the pictures that you want the listing to include. That is, you need to completely replace the original set of URLs with the revised set. You cannot remove all the PictureURL fields from a listing because each listing requires at least one picture.
Remember: The 'gallery image' will be the first PictureURL in the array of PictureURL fields. So, if the first image passed in when relisting/revising is different from when the listing was created, the 'gallery image' will be changed.
Note: For some large merchants, there are no limitations on when pictures can be added or removed from a fixed-price listing, even when the listing has had transactions or is set to end within 12 hours.
