On Ebay, is Tan Brown or Beige?

This is embarrassing. I wasn’t getting many views on my tan pants listings. The reason why: I didn’t pick the right color.

I put in that the some of the pants were “brown”.  It turns out that the correct color is “beige”.


People clicking on the little tan-colored square in the filters (if it appears there at all) are clicking on “beige”.

This is an okay category. You have a bunch of listings, but  you also have an almost equal number of sales over a couple months.  More importantly, these are the most generic office pants, so are widely available for very low prices.

What I discovered was that the photos for the other beige/tan office pants are all better than mine. I need to improve my photos.
