Answer:

The photo shows it stretched (which would be able to hang on a wall as is), but based on my experience with foreign ebay sellers, you may be getting a piece of flat painted canvas. While you don't need a frame around the outside, you do want it to come stretched over a wooden stretcher instead of rolled up in a tube.
I bought some that had a photo showing them hanging on a wall and then got just strips of canvas without even a border to allow them to be stretched. (plus they bore only a superficial resemblance to the painting in the photos--a really cheap forgery of someone elses work). I haven't seen this particular seller before--check their ratings. My advice--get the frame!
