I may have figured this out - I was using an active listing, which for some reason adds the images in the description on the listing on GarageSale, even though they aren’t on it on the live eBay listing. So it was overriding the deselection of the 'include image gallery…"
Is there are reason all of the listings on GarageSale do that (show the photos in the description)?
if you don’t have one of GarageSale’s listing designs selected, GarageSale will automatically add all your images below the item description. So far the only way around this is to use one of the listing designs (they come with a “No Images” layout option). There’s also a “No Design” listing design available which uses no background images or styling but still comes with all the layout options. (And also uses the meta tag you mention in your other post!)
Thanks, @fedege96 and @kristian - I hadn’t even paid attention to the GarageSale listing designs because I know eBay is going away from that, but didn’t even consider that there was a “no design” listing design available.
Glad I asked! Now my workflow will be much better. Appreciate the help!
I use the “Empty” design. Which has NO Title, and NO Photos.
Only the EXACT text that I put into the Listing Description:
This is Brand New Never Used. It is in New/Excellent condition. See photos of actual item. What You See Is What You Get.
I had heard discussions that with eBay’s push for mobile-friendly listings users were being encouraged to use the photo section for photos and not include them in the descriptions as it slows the load time for the listing.
I’m not sure if that’s accurate, but I prefer the descriptions without them anyway, so I figured I’d shoot for that just in case.
