Add animated 360 GIFs on eBay
1. Login to your Sirv account or create an account.
2. Upload the set of photos for your spin (or go to a spin you uploaded earlier):
3. Copy the location of your spin. It ends in .spin. For example:
4. Add ?image to the end of the URL - that tells Sirv to serve it as a GIF. Also add the size for the GIF using either &w=300 or &h=300 (where 300 is the number of pixels for the width or height). For example:
5. Add an img tag, just like usual when you add an image in HTML. It'll look like so:
You could go one step further and add a link to the interactive spin, like so:
<a href="https://demo.sirv.com/ring/ring.spin" target="_blank"><img src="https://demo.sirv.com/ring/ring.spin?image"></a>
6. Go to the Description section of your eBay listing and paste the code into the HTML editor.
In case you need help, send a message to the Sirv customer support team.
