Good day people! I have one question and the answer may save a lot of my time! I re-sell products and I want to add photos to products.. Can I legally use photos of actual manufacturers pages? For example, if I re-sell Nike shoes, can I take pictures of nike.com website of same shoes? Or it must be pictures made only by me? I don't want to get in trouble for using manufacturers pictures!

Hello @Karleon 

If it is Aliexpress products, you can use the images. No issues.

But when comes to branded products you should ask them about the royalty policy.

So if I would take my own pictures of the products - it would be ok?

If you want to dropship branded products you should be an authorized online retailer for that brand. Otherwise your ads may ban.

This is an accepted solution.

There should not be any issues with the product images but remember you can
not use the brand images.

Sometimes a manufacturer will spply product photos. However, it becomes an issue when you have multiple manufacturers and then the photos are not cohesive. Try sites that offer product photography--friends use these for their shopify stores because they know a good product photo drives conversion. Dillie and Fiverr or Upwork can all help.
