Listing ebay auctions
 
I know back when chromebooks came out you couldnt list or manage ebay auctions. Has this changed. Can i list auctions on ebay with chromebook?

I'm having the same problem. I bought my chromebook mostly so I could list ebay items. I can't load pictures.

Pictures...
 

WhatsHerName, what problems are you having, loading pictures... Do you mean putting images into post contributions, putting them into a photo album or saving them on your Chromebook??? The latter is the easiest to do...

It's the photos that are the problem on eBay.
 
Like others here, I have found it impossible to list items on eBay using my Chromebook - simply because it asks for a web address for a photo, which I don't have. I will try Bob's solution, but I still don't think I will be able to load a photo onto eBay from Drive. I tried loading a photo onto Facebook from Drive, and was told several times that there was an Error, so I don't think Facebook likes Drive photos either!

If you cannot load pictures from your CB album, try online using flicker (if still available) or photobucket... Even (as Bob mentioned) Google cloud might suffice... All free hosting...

Hi. That's not really the point. I would be able to load photos from Google Drive easily enough BUT the Chromebook ONLY allows eBay listings via html ie the photos can only be loaded from a web page. You are presumably using Google Drive but NOT listing through a Chromebook. Google Drive gives you a File name, NOT a web address, which the eBay/Cbook combination doesn't allow for.

Hi Robbie. I don't think the problem with eBay listings ie including photos has really been understood or answered. I would be able to load photos from Google Drive easily enough BUT the Chromebook ONLY allows eBay listings via html ie the photos can only be loaded from a web page ie eBay demands an html address for each photo. Google Drive gives you a File name for the photo, NOT a web address, which the eBay/Cbook combination doesn't allow for. I think that is the problem which we are all facing, and it is a major restriction on using a Chromebook.

ok , i only listed on ebay a couple times but this is how i did it . i take a picture of item to sell with my note 2 cell phone camera . while still on my cell phone i open the google drive app & upload the photo from my gallery ( on cell phone ) to google drive . now i start my hp chomebook 14 up . go to ebay and start listing . when posting photos open google drive and post photos . this worked for me 6/12/2014 , that was the last time i sold on ebay . also, i think the picture is a jpg file .

I manage my eBay auctions using my Chromebook and I've never had this kind of problem ever. Though I'm still quite new with eBay so it's probably different years ago. I've only been managing my eBay account for a couple of months.
