eBay test shows number of images in search

No primary category set

eBay Image NumberseBay appear to be testing showing the number of images a listing has in search results. A tag at the bottom of the image shows the number of images available should you wish to click into the listing to see more.

I like this idea, it’s an invitation to click in and find out more about the product, anything that encourages buyers to view listings has to be good for sellers.

Of course this is only good if you have multiple images and if you’ve loaded these images into eBay’s gallery rather than embedding them into your listing – one more reason for making use of eBay’s 12 free gallery images if you’re not already doing so.

We’re not seeing them on search results ourselves, so many thanks to Jon from who spotted them on his own listings.
