eBay Merchandising APIVersion 1.5.0

Errors by Number

This table lists all error and warning messages that could be encountered using the eBay Merchandising API.

All error messages are provided in English only. You can use the ID as an index into your own structure for supplying messages in whatever language or format you wish, but base your message translations on the error strings in this table.

Each error is either an Application Error, System Error or Request Error. This error type is indicated in error result sets by the value returned in the errorMessage.error.category return field. The error type indicates what sort of action the application, the developer, or the end-user needs to take in response to the error.

The version number in the heading (which indicates which eBay Merchandising API version that was in effect when this table was last generated) may be higher than the version of the WSDL you are using. This is because the list of possible errors can change periodically even though the WSDL may not change (due to changes in validation rules on the eBay site).
