Like most marketplace platforms, you can sell just about anything on eBay. If you’re looking to get in on the exploding foot pic market or are already making bank on another site and want to expand your customer base, keep reading. In this ultimate guide, you’ll learn everything you need to know to successfully sell feet pics on eBay and increase your earnings.
About eBay and How It Works
Launched in 1995, eBay is a multinational e-commerce company located in San Jose, California. The platform allows for customer-to-customer and business-to-customer sales and transactions. This structure was revolutionary at the time, making eBay one of the first websites that matched interested buyers with sellers of a variety of goods and services.
As a seller on eBay, you’ll register your account (we’ll explain how in a minute), and create listings for your products. These include photos, a description, and both payment and shipping options. When selling feet pics on eBay, the photos need to be high-quality and you may not need to include shipping information. Most foot pics are sold as digital or downloadable files.
There are two ways people usually purchase items on eBay – through an auction or using a standard transaction. How you list and price your items is up to you. If you post your feet pics for auction, interested buyers will bid on your item, with the highest bidder winning. There’s usually a time limit on these sales to generate interest and urgency as buyers drive the price up higher and higher. While this doesn’t always happen, a bidding war on eBay is your best bet for getting top dollar for your items. You can also just list items for sale in a more traditional way where buyers can pay for and receive them immediately.
Getting Started on the Platform
Once you get a handle on the basics of buying and selling on eBay, it’s time for you to create an account so you can start listing your sexy feet pics.
Start by creating a seller account on the platform. You’ll need to verify your identity and complete your profile, including a picture. This photo can be of your face, body, or feet, depending on if you plan to sell feet pics on eBay anonymously or not. Try to choose a photo that is professional, creative, and eye-catching without being too explicit.
Next, you’ll get seller protection which helps keep you safe from scammers who want your items but don’t want to pay. Now you can add your preferred payment methods. Most sellers on eBay have multiple payment methods listed so they can sell to a wider audience internationally. Consider safe and secure platforms like PayPal, Venmo, and Cash App.
At this point, your seller account should be up and running! Now it’s time to start adding high-quality content, setting your prices, and watch the offers and cash come rolling in.
Tips for Selling Feet Pics on eBay
Truth be told, it’s not quite as easy as this previous statement. Selling feet pics on eBay isn’t like the Field of Dreams – if you build it they will come. While there are plenty of eager foot fetishists searching for quality feet pics online, you need to do your part in attracting them, providing them with high-quality content, and converting them into loyal, repeat customers.
Here are a few tips to get you started selling feet pics on this massive marketplace.
Take Time Crafting Your Listings
When it comes to selling feet pics on eBay, your listing will make or break the sale. This includes everything from the photos you upload to the descriptions you write and the price tags you place on them. Take the time to carefully create each listing. Don’t just upload a few pictures and hope for the best. This sloppy work will stand out like a sore thumb and buyers will simply find another seller that takes more pride in their work.
You’re also required to fill in all of the information on each listing including the section of the pictures, shipping method (or how the photos will be delivered), return policy, and preferred method of payment. Include any important information that will help the sale run smoothly and protect you in the event of an issue.
Feet pic sales on eBay also require you to include clear specifications about the photos in your description. Include things like the size and dimension of the photo and whether or not it’s in digital format or a print. eBay also has a FAQ section in the description part of your listings where you can add any other pertinent information.
Alternate Between Auction Items and Straight Sales
There are two options for selling feet pics on eBay and you should probably utilize both. That means alternating between hosting auctions of your feet pics and straight sales. Try both methods and see which one is more lucrative.
You might be surprised at how much people will pay for quality feet pics. Set your price on the lower end (between $5 and $10) and see how high the price goes. When a buy makes a bid, they’re committed to paying that final price if they win, which is good news for you! You’ll also be asked to set a reserve price which is the lowest price you’ll accept. If the item doesn’t reach this number, it won’t sell and you can relist it elsewhere.
When it comes to pricing your feet pics for a straightforward sale on eBay, it works similar to selling feet pics on other platforms. Feet pics vary greatly from as little as $5 for a small or basic photo to as much as $100 for a custom order, artistic photo, or photos from some of the top sellers in the industry. If you’re just starting out, price your feet pics reasonably – between $10 and $30 per picture. Foot videos will earn you more. As you make a name for yourself, you can start charging more and taking custom orders which is what really brings in the big bucks.
If you’re making straightforward sales on eBay, you’ll want to consider the user fees you pay and calculate these into your price. All eBay seller accounts also have to pay a monthly subscription fee. You can also choose to pay annually if you prefer. There are several options to choose from based on your needs and budget. Here are the most popular.
- Starter store package: $7.95 per month or $4.95 per month if you pay for the year
- Basic: $27.95 per month or $21.95 per month for the year
- Premium: $74.95 per month or $59.95 annually
- Anchor: $349.95 per month or $299.95 for the year
- Enterprise: $2,999.95 per year
The more you pay, the more features you get access to. For example, the basic package allows for up to 1,000 listings at a fixed price and 250 auction-style listings, while the anchor plan gets you 25,000 listings at a fixed price with 1,000 auction-style sales. The starter package comes with 250 listings but not auction-style offers. The package you choose is really up to you, but if you’re just starting out selling feet pics on eBay, you’re probably better off starting with the basic package and working your way up. Remember to calculate this monthly user fee into your budget and pricing structure.
Only Sell High-Quality Feet Pics
While this may seem obvious, it’s worth mentioning. Selling feet pics online, including eBay, is a business and should be treated as one. You want to conduct yourself as a professional and reputable seller. Doing so will earn you positive reviews, recognition, and repeat customers. Don’t try to cut corners by selling low-quality photos or not delivering the type of product you describe in your listing. Nothing will earn you more negative feedback than duping paying customers. It only takes one dissatisfied customer to spread the word and ruin your reputation. And not just on eBay! Those negative reviews can haunt you and impact your success on other foot pic platforms as well.
You can’t expect to charge $30 or more for low-quality feet pics. Take the time to create beautiful, attractive, quality feet pics. This involves editing them, playing around with different filters, investing in the right lighting and equipment, and incorporating different props and accessories.

Research the Best-Selling Feet Pic Categories
Give the people what they want! Increase your chances of landing sales on eBay by posting the type of foot fetish content people are looking for. While most foot pics on eBay showcase bare feet in a variety of positions and poses, there’s a market for more specific and kinky content as well. Categories include everything from footwear and lingerie to BDSM, bondage, and even humiliation or stomping pictures. The more variety you include in your listings, the wider range of buyers you’ll attract.
Here are some more popular categories on some of the top feet pic selling platforms:
- Dirty feet
- Ethnic feet (Asian, ebony, Latin etc.)
- Mature feet
- Men’s feet
- Polished toes
- High arches or flat feet
- Dancer shoes
Consider Selling Foot Fetish Accessories
Some of the top sellers on eBay supplement their income from selling foot pics by selling other foot fetish-related items. This includes everything from high heels and pantyhose to foot jewelry, socks, and slippers. You can also sell foot fetish toys and games, toe suckers, foot masturbators, bondage accessories (ropes, ankle cuffs, or BDSM booties), and feather ticklers. Don’t limit yourself to just selling feet pics. Plenty of foot fetishists are dying to get their hands on your naughty and used accessories as well. Including a picture or video of yourself wearing or using the items can help bring in even more income.
Selling quality items on eBay is important but you need to attract interested buyers and generate traffic in order to land a sale. One way to do this is to optimize your listings using SEO best practices. SEO stands for search engine optimization and it involves optimizing your sales page to help gain traffic and rank higher on the SERPS (search engine results page). While some people might think these tactics are reserved for bloggers and professionals, they also apply to selling feet pics online. And remember, you are a professional!
The good news is that even if you don’t have any experience or knowledge using SEO, you can still use these basic principles to help get more eyes on your eBay store. All it takes is optimizing your image’s title based on trending keywords. Most people search for feet pics using a specific keyword or phrases.
For example, “barefoot pics”, “feet fetish”, “foot bondage”, or “slutty girl feet pics”. The more specific the keyword is (also referred to as long tail keywords), the better chances you have to rank for it. That means if your foot pic is labeled “toe sucking fetish” and someone enters this into the search bar on Google, your foot pic listing may just pop up on their screen. While this isn’t guaranteed, and people spend years perfecting their website’s SEO, adding these titles and taglines to your images can help give you an upper hand on the competition (or should we say, foot?).
Make Money Selling Feet Pics on eBay
You may have used eBay to purchase gently used items in the past at a discount or got into a heated bidding war over a hard to get item, but did you ever consider using this marketplace platform for selling feet pics? If you answered no, it’s time to reconsider.
Similar to other online e-commerce websites, eBay is a viable option for selling your sexy feet pics and turning a profit. But it shouldn’t be the only one. It’s important to keep your options open when selling explicit content online. Don’t place all your time and energy into a single website. Instead, promote yourself across multiple platforms to increase your sales. Just avoid spreading yourself so thin that your content suffers. Find a happy balance by selling feet pics on three or four websites to start including eBay, Etsy, OnlyFans, and right here on FunwithFeet. You can also check out popular social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
