What it is saying is that a value you are entering into a specific field is not valid. This is more common in files being uploaded as .CSV. Go to the link below and you will find the valid value for each field on the eBay and eBay Motors sites.

http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/import-csv.html

If this link does not take you to the eBay page, copy and paste this into your address field and hit enter.

How do i put a pitchure on ebay


You can use ebay's picture upload service (first photo is free, each addition picture is .15 cents) or create an account with Photobucket and upload your pictures for free and then copy the link into your auction description and it will appear under your description after you submit the listing to ebay.

How to create multiple item listings for fixed price on eBay


You can list multiple, identical items in one listing with a fixed price for each item. Buyers can buy whatever quantity they want at that price. In a fixed price listing, you need to sell your items for at least $1 each. To list in fixed price format, you need to do at least one of these things:
-- Establish your proof of identity with ID Verify (http://pages.ebay.com/services/buyandsell/idverify-login.html).
-- If you have a PayPal account, you need to have a feedback score of 15 and accept PayPal in your listing. -- If you don't have a PayPal account, you should be registered on eBay for at least 14 days and have a feedback score of at least 30.
-- If you're selling through a premium or anchor store, you also need to be PayPal Verified (https://www.paypal.com/helpscr?cmd=_help&locale=en_US&countrycode=US&_dyncharset=UTF8&t=solutionTab&ps=solutionPanels&solutionId=10568). Here's how it works:
1. When listing your item, select the fixed price tab, enter the Buy It Now price, and then enter the number of items for sale in the quantity field. If you don't see the Fixed Price tab or can't enter a number in the Quantity field, verify that you meet the requirements. 2. Buyers purchase one or more of your items by clicking the Buy It Now button on your listing. They can keep buying your items until they run out or the listing ends. If you have more than 10 of the same item, you can choose to show the quantity available as "more than 10" or show the actual number of items available. To select whether to show the exact number of items:
1. Go to My eBay and sign in.
2. Click the "Account" tab, and then click the "Site Preferences" link on the left.
3. Under Selling Preferences, click the "Show" link. 4. Click the "Edit" link next to "Show the exact quantity of items in your listing if the quantity exceeds 10."
5. Select either:
-- Display "More than 10 available" in your listing (if applicable).
-- Display the exact quantity in your listing.
6. Click "Submit."

I need help in transfering pictures from iphoto to Ebay for an add we are placing.


You will just neet copy need to copy the URL of the photo on iphoto and paste it on your eBay listing. The URL is directly under the photo. You will just need to scroll down on the description box on your "Sell your item" form on eBay and then click on the HTML tab and transfer the URL of the photo on the HTML box on the description. The other option is to copy and paste the photo and save it on your computer, so when you browsse and upload a picture on your listing, you can search for the photo on your computer and transfer it on your listing.

Pictures on ebay


Hi,

When you go through the ebay item listing process it will ask you in the "add images" section if you want to add images. There will be "browse button next to a text field. Click browse, navigate to where the images are and click on the one you want. It then will be in add to your listing once you hit the "upload button". waalaa, you did it! One extra little tip the larger the image the longer it will take to upload if it uploads at all. To remedy this edit your pictures in a photo editor. If you need help with editing I will be more than happy to assist you..."feed a man a fish and he eats for a day, show him how to fish and he eats for a lifetime"......
