Yes, you are correct.

If you look at the link you shared, in your browser click on View > Source and do a search on 'swf' and you'll notice that web page placed all of their .swf flash files on their own webserver.  

<http://prowebb.com/logosebay/flash/28.swf> is an example.

So they use their regular HTML on eBay and then place their flash file on their own website and that's about it.

You can customize your eBay store (store, header and About Me page) by inserting your HTML/Flash code into your eBay store and pointing to your flash .swf file which you will place on your own server, not eBay.

eBay allows for up to 5 "Me" pages.  These are web pages in your store in addition to your eBay listings.  The 'About Me' page is one example and creating a custom 'storefront' (landing page) is another.  You can really do a lot.


If you wanted to incorporate a flash banner, for example, to display in your eBay Store , you might add the following code.  Notice how the flash .swf file is on your own web server.  That's the only requirement.

<embed allowScriptAccess="never" src="http://www.yoursite.com/myflash.swf?clicktag=http%3A//www.yoursite.com" width="468" height="60" menu="false" scale="exactfit" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" style="border: solid 1px"></embed>
