    OK so here's my dilemma: I'm dropshipping from amazon to ebay. I'm trying to figure out a way of safely using amazon photos on my ebay account without getting into trouble with Ebay. I'm thinking of just slightly cropping or resizing each photo (reducing height by about 10 pixels) and removing all exif data and then uploading it to my ebay item. However, I'm also thinking about adding a watermark to each photo to make it even more unique. I was thinking of watermarking it with my own ebay seller account name. I don't know if this is a good idea tho. Could it or would it get me into trouble with Ebay? Would you recommend watermarking with my own account's name or just some random image (I don't know what this image would be tho!). What do you think?

    I've been dropshipping Amazon to eBay for two years and have been using Amazon's photos without any edits Watermarks, IMO, scream dropshipper.

    Interesting! How many items are you listing? It's different if you are a power seller. I have selling limits of 100 and only been active for 6 months.

    You should use photoshop to take out the watermark or make a unique twist of the image, of course you will have to see the terms of use.
