File Transfer API

File Transfer API Tutorials

There are no tutorials available specifically for the File Transfer API, but there is a sample application that demonstrates what the Large Merchant Services solution does. The sample is provided as a runnable JAR file, LMSSample.jar. The JAR file also contains the Java source files that you can explore, build, and run yourself. The sample can be used to upload files to add or revise inventory. Use this application to test your data files and to see how the APIs work together.

Download and extract the sample application zip file, LMSSample.zip. The zip file contains ReadMe.txt, which describes how to run the sample. This Java .jar package was improved on 3/19/2010, so that you no longer have to load the Axis libraries to run the sample.

In addition, you can perform the steps in the tutorials that are located in the eBay Developer Knowledge Base:

  • Java Sample (for LMSSample.zip above)
  • PHP Sample
  • DotNET Sample
