How do I control what images are displayed on eBay?

Can anyone help please?

In the screenshot below you can see that I have uploaded 4 product images in Magento. The top two images (supplied by the manufacturer on a life model) are displayed on the front end of my Magento website.

However, the manufacturer will not allow me to use these images on eBay and I can only use the bottom two images (where the life model has been erased).

I have therefore created two additional image attributes that I have named ebay_image and ebay_image_2 so that I can mark these as ebay images in Magento and then tick the ‘exclude’ option to ensure that they are not displayed on the frontend of my Magento website.

In the M2E ‘Description Policy/Template’ I have nominated the ebay_image attribute as the one to be used for the main image in my ebay listing.

However, I can not figure out how to get the second image to appear in my eBay listing without having to display all 4 images. I just need the top two images to appear on the frontend of my website and the bottom two images in my ebay listing

Does anyone know of a solution?

Hi James,

Oh wow not seen that done before. Daft question, what happens if you select the 2nd image for eBay and set it to ebay_image ?
