This November will be my twentieth year on ebay. This September ebay decided that I am not to be trusted.
Yesterday I noticed that the pictures in my new listings and revisions with "click for bigger" (mouse over) were not working. I thought it was related to the new version. I opened a ticket, JC told me eBay will no longer allow the clickable 'click for bigger' type links for images that are self-hosted. I tried to find a page somewhere on ebay with a simple description of the new policies. If one exists I can't find it.
I need to know -
If I change my picture hosting from Pair.com (fifteen years with Pair) to ebay will that work? That is, will that remove the violation and make ebay happy? And how would I go about doing that? I googled ebay picture hosting and got nowhere. And what's the cost of ebay hosting?
If I still self-host and make my pictures https instead of http will that work? If yes, does that mean I have to buy an SSL certificate?
I have a background gif that I like to think is part of my brand. Will ebay host that?
I sell old records and sometimes link to mp3 recordings I make. Will ebay host those?
My record listings have a link to my other ebay record auctions. Is that a violation?
What a mess...
