Call that uses SetUserPreferencesRequestType:

Fields



BidderNoticePreferences ( BidderNoticePreferencesType ) [0..1]
This container is included if the seller wishes to receive contact information for unsuccessful bidders. This preference is only applicable for auction listings.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use BidderNoticePreferences.

CombinedPaymentPreferences ( CombinedPaymentPreferencesType ) [0..1]
This container is included if the seller wishes to set the preference for allowing Combined Invoice orders for cases where the buyer has multiple unpaid order line items from the same seller.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use CombinedPaymentPreferences.

CrossPromotionPreferences ( CrossPromotionPreferencesType ) [0..1]
Not used by any call.

This container is deprecated.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use CrossPromotionPreferences.

DispatchCutoffTimePreference ( DispatchCutoffTimePreferencesType ) [0..1]
This container is included if the seller wishes to set the order cut off time for same-day shipping. If the seller specifies a value of 0 in Item.DispatchTimeMax to offer same day handling when listing an item, the seller's shipping time commitment depends on the order cut off time set for the listing site, as indicated by the DispatchCutoffTimePreference.CutoffTime field.

Note: This field is not applicable for sellers who have opted into the Handling Time Option of eBay Guaranteed Delivery, as this field only shows a single order cutoff time, but with the Handling Time Option, a seller can set a different order cutoff time for each business day. Currently, eBay Guaranteed Delivery is only available in the US.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use DispatchCutoffTimePreference.

EmailShipmentTrackingNumberPreference ( boolean ) [0..1]
This field is included and set to true if the seller wishes to email the shipment's tracking number to the buyer.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use EmailShipmentTrackingNumberPreference.

EndOfAuctionEmailPreferences ( EndOfAuctionEmailPreferencesType ) [0..1]
This container is included if the seller wishes to set preferences for the end-of-auction email sent to the winning bidder. These preferences allow the seller to customize the Email that is sent to buyer at the end of the auction. One or more preferences may be set or modified under this container. These preferences are only applicable for auction listings.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use EndOfAuctionEmailPreferences.

GlobalShippingProgramListingPreference ( boolean ) [0..1]
If this flag is included and set to true, the seller's new listings will enable the Global Shipping Program by default.

Note: This field is ignored for sellers who are not opted in to the Global Shipping Program (when GetUserPreferences returns OfferGlobalShippingProgramPreference with a value of false).
See the Field Index to learn which calls use GlobalShippingProgramListingPreference.

OutOfStockControlPreference ( boolean ) [0..1]
If this flag is included and set to true, it enables the Out-of-Stock feature. A seller would use this feature to keep Fixed-Price GTC (Good 'Til Canceled) listings alive even when the "quantity available" value goes to 0 (zero). This is useful when waiting for additional stock and eliminates the need to end the listing and then recreating it when stock arrives.

While the "quantity available" value is 0, the listing would be hidden from eBay search and if that item was specifically searched for with GetItem (or related call), the element HideFromSearch would be returned as 'true' and ReasonHideFromSearch would be returned as 'OutOfStock'.

When stock is available, the seller can use the Revise calls to update the inventory of the item (through the Item.Quantity or Item.Variations.Variation.Quantity fields) and the listing would appear again.

You can return the value of this flag using the GetUserPreferences call and setting the ShowOutOfStockControlPreference field to 'true'.

IMPORTANT: When a listing using the Out-of-Stock feature has zero quantity, the seller has 90 days to add inventory without incurring a listing fee. Fees are changed at the end of each the billing cycle but are then refunded if the item is out-of-stock for an entire billing period. See Fees For a Listing With Zero Quantity for details.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use OutOfStockControlPreference.

OverrideGSPserviceWithIntlService ( boolean ) [0..1]
If this flag is included and set to true, and the seller specifies an international shipping service to a particular country for a given listing, the specified service will take precedence and be the listing's default international shipping option for buyers in that country, rather than the Global Shipping Program. The Global Shipping Program will still be the listing's default option for shipping to any Global Shipping-eligible country for which the seller does not specify an international shipping service.

If this flag is set to false, the Global Shipping Program will be each Global Shipping-eligible listing's default option for shipping to any Global Shipping-eligible country, regardless of any international shipping service that the seller specifies for the listing.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use OverrideGSPserviceWithIntlService.

PurchaseReminderEmailPreferences ( PurchaseReminderEmailPreferencesType ) [0..1]
This container is included if the seller wishes to set the preference for sending a purchase reminder email to buyers.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use PurchaseReminderEmailPreferences.

RequiredShipPhoneNumberPreference ( boolean ) [0..1]
This field is included and set to true if the seller wishes to require the buyer to provide a shipping phone number upon checkout. Some shipping carriers require the receiver's phone number.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use RequiredShipPhoneNumberPreference.

SellerFavoriteItemPreferences ( SellerFavoriteItemPreferencesType ) [0..1]
This container is included if the seller wishes to set preferences for displaying items on a buyer's Favorite Sellers' Items page or Favorite Sellers' Items digest. One or more preferences may be set or modified under this container.
