Images returned from Finding API are not loading in my website

I am using Finding API's findItemsByKeywords endpoint to return item information and using the outputSelector to return all image sizes. However, the images are failing to load when I use them in my site. I keep getting `could not load image` errors.

This happens on all images. My site is HTTPS loading HTTPS images so it is not a security issue. The images do exist and I can go to them directly.

Why is this happening? Are we not allowed to reuse the images from the API on our own sites?

Example:
This loads - https://thumbs1.ebaystatic.com/m/mCwJ67TY4VjRbyyAPnks6jg/140.jpg
This does not -

I don't think we're prohibited from using those images on our sites.

Have you tried using a different browser, just to compare? Do you have domain/ad blocking browser extensions getting in the way? Also, have you tried placing the HTML sample text on another website? And perhaps try sending a different referrer, using a browser extension, just to see if that helps, although it's a long-shot.

That image loads for me when I go to the URL.


Also, don't use findItemsByKeywords. Use findItemsAdvanced.

Good call @helios825, looks like FireFox blocks eBay URLs by default. The built in adblocked flags eBay for tracking.

Works in Chrome and other browsers however. Thanks!

Why use findItemsAdvanced instead of findItemsByKeywords?

It hasn't been updated in forever and has been known to have issues in the past. findItemsAdvanced has all the same functionality.
