VATDetailsType

Container for eBay's Business User features. A business seller can choose to offer an item exclusively to bidders and buyers that also represent businesses. Only applicable when the item is listed in a B2B-enabled category. Currently, the eBay Germany (DE), Austria (AT), and Switzerland (CH) sites support B2B business features.

Fields



BusinessSeller ( boolean ) [0..1]
If true, this indicates that the seller is a business user and intends to use listing features that are offered to business users only. Applicable only to business sellers residing in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland who are listing in a B2B VAT-enabled category on the eBay Germany (DE), Austria (AT), or Switzerland (CH) sites.

The seller must have a valid VAT ID registered with eBay. This must be set to true if RestrictedToBusiness is true. It has no effect (and it's not returned) if RestrictedToBusiness is false.

If an item was not qualified as a business item when originally listed, but meets the conditions for business items when the item is revised or relisted, the seller can convert the item to a business item by specifying the appropriate VAT details.

See the eBay Features Guide for more information and additional rules.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use BusinessSeller.

RestrictedToBusiness ( boolean ) [0..1]
If true, this indicates that the seller elects to offer the item exclusively to business users. If false (or not returned), this indicates that the seller elects to offer the item to all users. Applicable only to business sellers residing in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland who are listing in a B2B VAT-enabled category on the eBay Germany (DE), Austria (AT), or Switzerland (CH) sites. If this argument is true, the seller must have a valid VAT-ID registered with eBay, and BusinessSeller must also be true.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use RestrictedToBusiness.

VATID ( string ) [0..1]
Displays the VatSite Id of the seller (in a business card format) as part of the data returned in the GetItem call if the seller's SellerBusinessCodeType is set to Commercial.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use VATID.

VATPercent ( float ) [0..1]
VAT (Value Add Tax) rate for the item, if any. When the VATPercent is specified, the item's VAT information appears on the item's listing page. In addition, the seller can choose to print an invoice that includes the item's net price, VAT percent, VAT amount, and total price. Since VAT rates vary depending on the item and on the user's country of residence, a seller is responsible for entering the correct VAT rate; it is not calculated by eBay.

To specify a VATPercent, a seller must have a VAT-ID registered with eBay and must be listing the item on a VAT-enabled site. Max applicable length is 6 characters, including the decimal (e.g., 12.345). The scale is 3 decimal places. (If you pass in 12.3456, eBay may round up the value to 12.346.)

Note: The View Item page may display the precision to 2 decimal places with no trailing zeros. However, the full value you send in is stored.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use VATPercent.

VATSite ( string ) [0..1]
Displays the VatSite Id of the seller (in a business card format) as part of the data returned in the GetItem call if the seller's SellerBusinessCodeType is set to Commercial.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use VATSite.
