Photos are a nice feature, but not necessary. Newspaper classifieds worked well for many years without photos.

I think it is almost silly to NOT post a picture. The odds of selling something to someone that they cannot see online first is very low.

Actually I think you should also have a vote on people HAVING to put a price and a contact with each listing. (they do not respond to that 'send the seller a message' thing). Twice this week I have responding to people asking them to contact me and I listed my phone and email (they had no phone or email listed with their posting) as I was interested in their items..........and neither one bothered to contact me. They are trying to sell something, for gosh sakes...........why are they SO afraid to list a phone or email. The least they can do is respond and let you know if the item has sold.

Itreally depends on what is being sold. It should be obvious which items require apicture and which don't.

Yes but your mobile app doesn't allow people to upload photos.

I think adding a picture of the item is very helpful but is not necessary on some items.

Someone mentioned that the item should always have a price listed. If you click on the link below the ad, you will see the price.

I also can see why some don't want to give out their phone number or email address. You can always send the seller a private message.

I say no, some have problems posting pictures and I find my best buys are out there even after it is posted with no picture... why are the items still out there... because few people will look at it... so it is a double edged sword...

I suggest changing Manage Attachments to Add your pictures here. I don't know about the mandatory thing.
