New Features - 1063

This section describes new features that have been added as of this release. New features can involve new calls, new capabilities, and/or new fields added to existing calls.

For logical or functional changes to existing features and calls, including code list changes, see Changed Functionality - 1063.

International returns

Several International fields were added to the ReturnPolicy container. These fields let sellers specify international return policies that differ from their domestic return policies (international returns are those that are shipped using an international shipping service).

Before this release, the single set of return policy fields represented the seller's return policies for both domestic and international returns. The preexisting return policy fields now define a seller's domestic return policy and the new international fields enable sellers to also define specific international return policies. (If a seller does not define specific international return policies, then any international returns will inherit the seller's domestic return policies).

Changed Functionality - 1063

This section describes logical or functional changes that have been made to existing functionality, including new code list values and/or changes in validation rules.

This release launches a reorganization to eBay's return policies. To streamline the number of return variations, several fields were deprecated and others were added to make return policies simple to create and easy to maintain. For details on this roll out, see the Spring 2018 Seller Announcement, Simplified Returns.

Deprecated functionality

Starting with this release, sellers can no longer specify warranty information, restocking fees, or hours for extended holiday returns with their return policies. With this, the following ReturnPolicy fields are deprecated with this release; any values supplied to these fields will neither be read nor returned:

Simplified returns

Simplified returns changes the following functionality within the ReturnPolicy container in this release:
