Pink Nissan Figaro

A picture is worth a thousand words…and few would disagree that you can increase the chances of making a sale by posting a photo to your ebay listing.

Auctiva, MyEasyPics, BiggerBids and other picture services have flourished in offering services to ebay  sellers.

Ebayer buyers will now be able to see items from different angles through the use of online videos which also enables sound so you can hear whether a car engine purrs or rumbles.
