Argument Type Occurrence Meaning
Call-specific Input Fields [Jump to standard fields]
Item ItemType Optional Currently, only the following can be specified as children of this container: payment methods, the PayPal email address, and CategoryMappingAllowed. This container is intended for specifying item values that differ from values in the template specified in the SaleTemplateID field. However, currently, the only children that are allowed for this container are payment methods and a PayPal email address.
Item.CategoryMappingAllowed boolean Optional Controls how eBay handles cases in which an Category ID specified in PrimaryCategory and/or SecondaryCategory no longer exists in the current category structure: If you pass a value of 'true' in CategoryMappingAllowed, eBay will look up the current category ID that is mapped to the same category and use the new Category ID for the listing (if any). The new Category ID will be returned in the response as CategoryID (for the primary category) or Category2ID (for the secondary category). If CategoryMappingAllowed is not set or contains a value of 'false' (the default), an error will be returned if a specified Category ID no longer exists.

Not applicable to Half.com.

See Mapping Old Category IDs to Current IDs.

Item.ConditionDescription string Optional This string field is used by the seller to more clearly describe the condition of items that are not brand new.

The ConditionDescription field is available for all categories, including categories where the condition type is not applicable (e.g., Antiques). This field is applicable for all item conditions except "New", "Brand New", "New with tags", and "New in box". If ConditionDescription is used with these conditions (Condition IDs 1000-1499), eBay will simply ignore this field if included, and eBay will return a warning message to the user.

This field should only be used to further clarify the condition of the used item. For example, "The right leg of the chair has a small scratch, and on the seat back there is a light blue stain about the shape and size of a coin." It should not be used for branding, promotions, shipping, returns, payment or other information unrelated to the condition of the item. Make sure that the condition type (Item.ConditionID), condition description, item description (Item.Description), and the listing's pictures do not contradict one another.

Note: The ConditionDescription field is optional For Add/Revise/Relist API calls. However, this field may become required in some categories starting with the Spring 2013 Seller Release.
ConditionDescription is currently supported on the eBay US and US eBay Motors (0), UK (3), CA (2), CAFR (210), AU (15), AT (16), BEFR (23), BENL (123), FR (71), DE (77), IT (101), NL (146), ES (186), CH (193), IE (205) and PL (212) sites.
The ConditionDescription field is returned by GetItem (and other related calls that return the Item object) if a condition description is specified in the listing.
Max length: 1000.
Item.ConditionID int Conditional The numeric ID (e.g., 1000) for the item condition. Sellers should also clarify the item's condition in their own item description.

Note: In addition to including notes on flaws or wear and tear on an used item in the Item.Description, and including a ConditionID value, you can provide additional information about the condition of your used item through the Item.ConditionDescription string field.
For the AddItem family of calls: Use GetCategoryFeatures for details about which categories support (or require) ConditionID, plus policies and help on choosing the right condition for the item (to reduce disputes).

Please note the following behavior if you pass a ConditionID value that is not valid for the category: If ConditionID is disabled (or not applicable) for the category, the item is listed with no condition. If ConditionID is enabled or required for the category, the listing request fails.

If you are listing in two categories, the primary category determines which condition model (ConditionID or item specifics) and which condition values can be used.

US eBay Motors Parts & Accessories and vehicle categories require ConditionID for new listings and re-listings.

Not applicable to Half.com in listing requests (e.g., AddItem). However, ConditionID could be returned in responses for Half.com listings that are available to or sold on the eBay site (as appropriate for the corresponding eBay category).

For Revise/Relist calls: In most cases, you can add or modify ConditionID when you revise or relist. If GetCategoryFeatures returns ConditionEnabled=Required for the listing's category, you cannot remove ConditionID from the listing.

If an auction has bids or ends within 12 hours, you cannot remove or change its condition, and you cannot replace a condition attribute or custom item specific with ConditionID. In this case, you will still be able to modify other fields that are normally editable, even if ConditionID is not present.

In most cases, you can add or modify ConditionID for multi-quantity fixed price listings. (If a multi-quantity fixed price listing has revision restrictions imposed by other choices the seller has made in the listing, you might not be able to remove or change the condition.)

If you revise or relist a GTC listing that only has a condition attribute or custom item specific, you need to specify ConditionID (if the category requires it). ReviseInventoryStatus also fails if you attempt to revise listings that are missing ConditionID. (This rule does not apply during auto-renewal of a GTC listing. It only applies when you perform an action on the listing.)

For GetItem and GetSellerList: Only returned when the seller specified ConditionID in their listing. Also returns a localized display name.

Note: For most categories, eBay does not convert item condition data in the older AttributeSetArray, LookupAttributeArray, or ItemSpecifics format to this format in older listings or when you revise or relist items. This means GTC listings and older ended or sold listings may still return the item condition in these other fields even after new listings only support ConditionID.

There are a few categories in which automatic mapping does occur, where the old and newer conditions are identical. See the "Automatic Mapping" tab in the Item Condition Look-up Table link below for details.

Also, if you specified ConditionID but the category also supports condition in item specifics, you may receive a "Dropped condition from Item specifics" warning. You can ignore this warning as long as you used ConditionID.

See:
    Specifying an Item's Condition
    ConditionValues in GetCategoryFeatures
    Item Condition Look-up Table (and Automatic Mapping)

Item.ItemCompatibilityList ItemCompatibilityListType Optional A list of parts compatibility information specified as name and value pairs. Describes an assembly with which a part is compatible (i.e., compatibility by application). For example, to specify a part's compatibility with a vehicle, the name (search name) would map to standard vehicle characteristics (e.g., Year, Make, Model, Trim, and Engine). The values would desribe the specific vehicle, such as a 2006 Honda Accord. Use the Product Metadata API to retrieve valid search names and corresponding values.

For the AddItem family of calls: Use this for specifying parts compatibility by application manually. This can only be used in categories that support parts compatibility by application. Use GetCategoryFeatures with the "CompatibilityEnabled" feature ID to determine which categories support parts compatibility by application.

Note: Only valid parts compatibility name-value pairs will be added to the listing. Any invalid parts compatibility combinations will be reported in the long error message in the response errors with a severity of Warning. For ReviseFixedPriceItem and ReviseItem: When you revise a listing, if the listing has bids and/or ends within 12 hours, item compatibilities cannot be deleted. You may add item compatibilities at any time.

For GetItem: ItemCompatibilityList is returned only if:
  • The seller included item compatibility in the listing.
  • The item compatibility details were specified manually; that is, they do not correspond to an eBay catalog product. (To retrieve compatibility details that do correspond to eBay catalog products, use the eBay Product API's getProductCompatibilities call.)
  • IncludeItemCompatibilityList is set to true in the GetItem request
  • .

See:
    Specifying Parts Compatibility in Listings
    Product Metadata API Call Reference for information about retrieving compatibility search names and corresponding values needed to specify compatibility by application manually.

Item.ItemCompatibilityList
  .Compatibility
ItemCompatibilityType Conditional,
repeatable: [0..*]
Details for an individual compatible application, consisting of the name-value pair and related compatibility notes. When revising or relisting, the Delete field can be used to delete individual compatibility nodes.

Note: For the GetItem call, Compatibility includes only compatibility details that were specified manually; that is, they do not correspond to an eBay catalog product. To retrieve compatibility details that do correspond to eBay catalog products, use the eBay Product API's getProductCompatibilities call.
Item.ItemCompatibilityList
  .Compatibility
  .CompatibilityNotes
string Conditional The seller may optionally enter any notes pertaining to the compatibility being specified. Use this field to specify the placement of the part on a vehicle or the type of vehicle a part fits.
Item.ItemCompatibilityList
  .Compatibility.NameValueList
NameValueListType Conditional,
repeatable: [0..*]
A name-value pair describing a single compatible application. The allowed names and values are specific to the primary category in which the item is listed. For example, when listing in a Parts & Accessories category, where the applications are vehicles, the allowed names might include Year, Make, and Model, and the values would correspond to specific vehicles in eBay's catalog.

The K type vehicle number is supported in the DE, UK, and AU eBay sites to specify parts compatibility. To use a K type number to specify item compatiblities, set the Name field to "KType" and set the corresponding Value field to the K type number.

See Product Metadata API Call Reference for information on retrieving compatibility search names and corresponding values needed to specify compatibility by application manually.

Item.ItemCompatibilityList
  .Compatibility.NameValueList
  .Name
string Optional A name in a name/value pair.

For the AddItem and AddFixedPriceItem families of calls: In the Item.ItemSpecifics context, this can be any name that the seller wants to use. However, to help buyers find items more easily, it is a good idea to try to use a recommended name when possible (see GetCategorySpecifics or GetItemRecommendations). You can't specify the same name twice within the same listing.

For the AddFixedPriceItem family of calls: In the VariationSpecifics context, this can be any name that the seller wants to use, unless the VariationsEnabled flag is false for the name in the GetCategorySpecifics response. For example, for some categories eBay may recommend that you only use "Brand" as a shared name at the Item level, not in variations.

For GetCategorySpecifics and GetItemRecommendations: This is a recommended (popular) name to use for items in the specified category (e.g., "Brand" might be recommended, not "Manufacturer").

For PlaceOffer: Required if the item being purchased includes Item Variations.
Max length: 40.
Item.ItemCompatibilityList
  .Compatibility.NameValueList
  .Value
string Optional,
repeatable: [0..*]
A value associated with the name.

For the AddItem family of calls: If you specify multiple values for Item Specifics, eBay only stores the first one, unless GetCategorySpecifics or GetItemRecommendations indicates that the corresponding name supports multiple values.

For the AddFixedPriceItem family of calls: If you specify multiple values for Item Specifics or Variation Specifics, eBay only stores the first one, unless GetCategorySpecifics or GetItemRecommendations indicates that the corresponding name supports multiple values.

In VariationSpecificSet, you typically specify multiple Value fields for each name. For example, if Name=Size, you would specify all size values that you wan to offer in the listing.

For GetCategorySpecifics and GetItemRecommendations: The most highly recommended values are returned first. For these calls, Value is only returned when recommended values are available.

For PlaceOffer: Required if the item being purchased includes Item Variations.
Max length: 50.
Item.PaymentMethods BuyerPaymentMethodCodeType Conditional,
repeatable: [0..*]
Identifies the payment method (such as PayPal) that the seller will accept when the buyer pays for the item. For the AddItem family of calls, at least one payment method is required.

Use GetCategoryFeatures to determine the payment methods that are allowed for a category on a site. For example, the response data of GetCategoryFeatures will show that on the US site, most categories only allow electronic payments. Also use GetCategoryFeatures to determine the default payment method for a site (see SiteDefaults.PaymentMethod). If a seller does not include at least one payment method in a Add/Revise/RelistItem API call, the default payment method is used for the listing.

Do not use GeteBayDetails to determine the payment methods for a site.

For a DE or AT seller's items that are subject to the new eBay payment process, only one PaymentMethod field will be returned, and the value will always be 'StandardPayment'.

If you specify multiple PaymentMethods fields, the repeating fields must be contiguous. For example, you can specify PayPalEmailAddress after a list of repeating PaymentMethods fields, but not between them:

<PaymentMethods>VisaMC</PaymentMethods>
<PaymentMethods>PayPal</PaymentMethods>
<PayPalEmailAddress>mypaypalemail@ebay.com</PayPalEmailAddress>

In general, if you separate repeating instances of a field, the results will be unpredictable. This rule applies to all repeating fields (maxOccurs="unbounded" or greater than 1) in the schema. See "Overview of the Schema" in the Trading API Guide.

This field is not applicable to eBay Real Estate Ad format, Classified Ad format, or Half.com listings.

For ReviseItem and RelistItem only: A listing must have at least one valid payment method. When you revise or relist an item and you specify a payment method that is invalid for the target site, eBay ignores the invalid payment method, applies the other valid changes, and returns a warning to indicate that the invalid payment method was ignored. If multiple payment methods were invalid, the warning indicates that they were all ignored. If you modify the listing so that it includes no valid payment methods, an error is returned. This situation could occur when the seller removes all valid payment methods or when all the payment methods specified for the item are no longer valid on the target site.

Applicable values: See PaymentMethods.

See:
    Determining the Payment Methods Allowed for a Category
    Listing an Item
    (SetUserPreferences) SellerPaymentPreferences
    Overview of the API Schema
    GeteBayDetails

Item.PayPalEmailAddress string Conditional Valid PayPal email address for the PayPal account that the seller will use if they offer PayPal as a payment method for the listing. eBay uses this to identify the correct PayPal account when the buyer pays via PayPal during the checkout process. (As a seller can have more than one PayPal account, you cannot necessarily rely on PayPal account data returned from GetUser for details about the account associated with the PayPal email address that the seller specifies.)

Required if seller has chosen PayPal as a payment method (PaymentMethods) for the listing.

For digital listings, the seller needs to use an email address that is associated with a PayPal Premier or PayPal business account.

For ReviseItem and RelistItem only: To remove this value when you revise or relist an item, use DeletedField. When you revise a listing, if the listing has bids (or items have been sold) or it ends within 12 hours, you can add PayPalEmailAddress, but you cannot remove it.

Not applicable to eBay Motors listings.
Not applicable to Half.com.

See:
    Listing an Item
    (SetUserPreferences) SellerPaymentPreferences

SaleTemplateID long Optional The ID of the template you are using to list an item. You can obtain a SaleTemplateID by calling GetSellingManagerInventory.
ScheduleTime dateTime Optional Start time for the listing.
Standard Input Fields  
ErrorLanguage string Optional Use ErrorLanguage to return error strings for the call in a different language from the language commonly associated with the site that the requesting user is registered with. Specify the standard RFC 3066 language identification tag (e.g., en_US).

See Tags for the Identification of Languages.

MessageID string Optional Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

Note: GetCategories is designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, the MessageID and CorrelationID fields aren't applicable. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, MessageID and CorrelationID are applicable.
Version string Conditional The version number of the API code that you are programming against (e.g., 859). The version you specify for a call has these basic effects:
- It indicates the version of the code lists and other data that eBay should use to process your request.
- It indicates the schema version you are using.
You need to use a version that is greater than or equal to the lowest supported version.

For the SOAP API: If you are using the SOAP API, this field is required. Specify the version of the WSDL your application is using.

For the XML API: If you are using the XML API, this field has no effect. Instead, specify the version in the X-EBAY-API-COMPATIBILITY-LEVEL HTTP header. (If you specify Version in the body of an XML API request and it is different from the value in the HTTP header, eBay returns an informational warning that the value in the HTTP header was used instead.)

See:
    Routing the Request (Gateway URLs)
    eBay Schema Versioning Strategy
    Lowest Supported Version

WarningLevel WarningLevelCodeType Optional Controls whether or not to return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request.

An unrecognized element is one that is not defined in any supported version of the schema. Schema element names are case-sensitive, so using WarningLevel can also help you remove any potential hidden bugs within your application due to incorrect case or spelling in field names before you put your application into the Production environment.

WarningLevel only validates elements; it doesn't validate XML attributes. It also doesn't control warnings related to user-entered strings or numbers, or warnings for logical errors.

We recommend that you only use this during development and debugging. Do not use this in requests performed in the Production environment.

Applicable values:

•   High

(in) Return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request.

•   Low

(in) Do not return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request. This is the default value if WarningLevel is not specified.


See Warning Level.

Return Value Type Occurrence Meaning
Call-specific Output Fields [Jump to standard fields]
Category2ID string Conditionally ID of the secondary category in which the item was listed. Only returned if you set Item.CategoryMappingAllowed to true in the request and the ID you passed in SecondaryCategory was mapped to a new ID by eBay. If the secondary category has not changed or it has expired with no replacement, Category2ID does not return a value. Not applicable to Half.com.
Max length: 10.
CategoryID string Conditionally ID of the primary category in which the item was listed. Only returned if you set Item.CategoryMappingAllowed to true in the request and the ID you passed in PrimaryCategory was mapped to a new ID by eBay. If the primary category has not changed or it has expired with no replacement, CategoryID does not return a value. Not applicable to Half.com.
Max length: 10.
EndTime dateTime Always End time for the listing that was created by the AddItemFromSellingManagerTemplate request. This value is equal to the start time plus the listing duration.
Fees FeesType Always Child elements contain the estimated listing fees for the new item listing. The fees do not include the Final Value Fee (FVF), which cannot be determined until an item is sold.
Fees.Fee FeeType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Contains the name, fee, and possible discount amount for an item listing feature. A Fee container is returned for each listing feature, even if the associated cost (Fee value) is 0.
ItemID ItemIDType (string) Always The unique identifier for the listing that was created by the AddItemFromSellingManagerTemplate request.
Max length: 19 (Note: The eBay database specifies 38. Currently, Item IDs are usually 9 to 12 digits).
StartTime dateTime Always Start time for the listing that was created by the AddItemFromSellingManagerTemplate request.
Standard Output Fields  
Ack AckCodeType Always A token representing the application-level acknowledgement code that indicates the response status (e.g., success). The AckCodeType list specifies the possible values for the Ack field.

Applicable values:

•   CustomCode

(out) Reserved for internal or future use.

•   Failure

(out) Request processing failed

•   Success

(out) Request processing succeeded

•   Warning

(out) Request processing completed with warning information being included in the response message


(Not all values in AckCodeType apply to this field.)
Build string Always This refers to the specific software build that eBay used when processing the request and generating the response. This includes the version number plus additional information. eBay Developer Support may request the build information when helping you resolve technical issues.
CorrelationID string Conditionally Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

Note: GetCategories is designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, the MessageID and CorrelationID fields aren't applicable. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, MessageID and CorrelationID are applicable.
Errors ErrorType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
A list of application-level errors (if any) that occurred when eBay processed the request.

See Error Handling.

Errors.ErrorClassification ErrorClassificationCodeType Conditionally API errors are divided between two classes: system errors and request errors.

Applicable values:

•   CustomCode

(out) Reserved for internal or future use.

•   RequestError

(out) An error has occurred either as a result of a problem in the sending application or because the application's end-user has attempted to submit invalid data (or missing data). In these cases, do not retry the request. The problem must be corrected before the request can be made again. If the problem is due to something in the application (such as a missing required field), the application must be changed. If the problem is a result of end-user data, the application must alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for the end-user to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, resend the request to eBay with the corrected data.

•   SystemError

(out) Indicates that an error has occurred on the eBay system side, such as a database or server down. An application can retry the request as-is a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, the request may be resent in its original form.


Errors.ErrorCode token Conditionally A unique code that identifies the particular error condition that occurred. Your application can use error codes as identifiers in your customized error-handling algorithms. See the "Errors by Number" document.
Errors.ErrorParameters ErrorParameterType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters
  [ attribute ParamID ]
string Conditionally This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters.Value string Conditionally The value of the variable (e.g., the attribute set ID)
Errors.LongMessage string Conditionally A more detailed description of the condition that raised the error.
Errors.SeverityCode SeverityCodeType Conditionally Indicates whether the error is a severe error (causing the request to fail) or an informational error (a warning) that should be communicated to the user.

Applicable values:

•   CustomCode

(out) Reserved for internal or future use.

•   Error

(out) The request that triggered the error was not processed successfully. When a serious application-level error occurs, the error is returned instead of the business data.

If the source of the problem is within the application (such as a missing required element), change the application before you retry the request.

  • If the problem is due to end-user input data, please alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for them to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, you can attempt to re-send the request to eBay.
  • If the source of the problem is on eBay's side, An application can retry the request as-is a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, the request may be resent in its original form.


See the Compatible Application Check section of the eBay Features Guide for more information.

•   Warning

(out) The request was processed successfully, but something occurred that may affect your application or the user. For example, eBay may have changed a value the user sent in. In this case, eBay returns a normal, successful response and also returns the warning.

When a warning occurs, the error is returned in addition to the business data. In this case, you do not need to retry the request (as the original request was successful). However, depending on the cause or nature of the warning, you might need to contact either the end user or eBay to effect a long term solution to the problem to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.


Errors.ShortMessage string Conditionally A brief description of the condition that raised the error.
HardExpirationWarning string Conditionally Expiration date of the user's authentication token. Only returned within the 7-day period prior to a token's expiration. To ensure that user authentication tokens are secure and to help avoid a user's token being compromised, tokens have a limited life span. A token is only valid for a period of time (set by eBay). After this amount of time has passed, the token expires and must be replaced with a new token.
Timestamp dateTime Always This value represents the date and time when eBay processed the request. The time zone of this value is GMT and the format is the ISO 8601 date and time format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSSZ). See the Time Values section in the eBay Features Guide for information about this time format and converting to and from the GMT time zone.

Note: GetCategories and other Trading API calls are designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, this time value reflects the time the cached response was created. Thus, this value is not necessarily when the request was processed. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, this time value does reflect when the request was processed.
Version string Always The version of the response payload schema. Indicates the version of the schema that eBay used to process the request. See the Standard Data for All Calls section in the eBay Features Guide for information on using the response version when troubleshooting CustomCode values that appear in the response.
