Hi Catisfaction -
We have recently enabled the Optional eBay Gallery Images in Auctiva accounts by default. However, you can deselect the checkbox for it prior to posting your listings if you do not wish to have this enabled.
We made this change for a number of reasons and it should not adversely affect your account or listings. Please keep in mind that using the Optional eBay Gallery Images is free, there is no additional charge from either us or eBay. (Note that the Gallery Plus feature that eBay offers is different, and usually includes an addtional eBay fee and can be turned on if you wish to use it in the Marketing section of the lister page).
Having theses optional images on in your listings ensures your images are displayed on all platforms including mobile and the eBay mobile app, where other images and descriptions do not show up on the main page when a listing is first displayed. Also, having multiple free gallery images positively affects eBay search results for your items and allows users (specifically on mobile platforms) the ability to more easily assess the item you are selling and can decrease the possibility of buyer dissatisfaction, which ultimately helps seller performance standards; please see http://pages.ebay.com/help/pol...ler-performance.html
