Type defining the VariationSpecificPictureSet container, which is used to specify the URL(s) where the picture(s) of the variation specific will be hosted. If the Variations.Pictures container is used, at least one VariationSpecificPictureSet container is required.
Type that uses VariationSpecificPictureSetType:
Calls that use VariationSpecificPictureSetType:
Returns the URLs of the seller's self-hosted (hosted outside of eBay) variation specific pictures and the URL for the corresponding eBay Picture Services (EPS), that was generated when the picture was uploaded.
Returns the URL of a variation-specific picture that is hosted outside of eBay.
When you list, revise, or relist a variation, use VariationSpecificPictureSet.PictureURL (not ExternalPictureURL) to specify your self-hosted picture or EPS picture.
Note: All images must comply to the Picture Requirements. This is returned only when the seller used a self-hosted picture for the variation.
No longer used.
The image specified in the first PictureURL field is also used as the thumbnail image for applicable variations. For example, if the picture set contains pictures of red shirts (i.e., VariationSpecificName=Color and VariationSpecificValue=Red), the first picture is used as the thumbnail image for all the red shirt variations.
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. You can use Item.PictureDetails to specify additional pictures. For example, the item-level pictures could include a model wearing a black shirt, as a typical example of the shirt style.
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. Variation pictures cannot be added or removed from a fixed-price listing when the listing is scheduled to end within 12 hours or if the item variation has already had transactions.
Note: For some large merchants, there are no limitations on when variation pictures can be added or removed from a fixed-price listing, even when the item variation has had transactions or is set to end within 12 hours.
