Image Hosting Settings
Product images can be hosted within SellerCloud so they can be viewed on eBay or submitted to other channels, such as Amazon, Sears, etc.
However, if a standalone installation of SellerCloud is on a secure LAN and not web-accessible, third-party image hosting will be required.
For example, if SellerCloud is only accessible from a local network address - http://tt.cwa.sellercloud.com/images/products/ - the images stored in SellerCloud cannot be viewed by eBay customers and cannot be submitted to feeds.
Another reason for third-party hosting is when a LAN application is accessible through a non-standard port, such as port 81 instead of port 80. Channels such as Amazon do not accept image URLs with non-standard port numbers. Third-party image hosting must be used when operating on a secure LAN.
Using eBay's image hosting options, SellerCloud will post the images to the eBay listing and can include those same images in the content of the HTML listing description. eBay image URLs appear in a format like http://i.ebayimg.com/00/$(KGrHqYOKjgE3uNHus7LBN8,TEm2MQ~~0_1.JPG?set_id=8800005007
