Fields

ResetDefaultSubjects ( boolean ) [0..1]
This boolean field can be used in the SetMessagePreferences call to reset all custom Ask Seller a Question (ASQ) subjects to their default eBay values. For any given SetMessagePreferences call, either ResetDefaultSubjects or one or more Subject fields can be used, but not both in the same call.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ResetDefaultSubjects.

Subject ( string ) [0..*]
Each Subject field contains one custom Ask a Question (ASQ) subject. A maximum of nine custom ASQ subjects can be created. eBay's "General question about this item" subject will always be included in all listings.

For any given SetMessagePreferences call, either ResetDefaultSubjects or one or more Subject fields can be used, but not both in the same call. ASQ subjects are displayed on the drop-down list in the same order as they are passed in to the request. So, if the seller would like to rearrange the order of the ASQ subjects, they should keep this behavior in mind.

Note that the default ASQ subjects will display in the site's language if retrieved from a site other than the seller's own. For example, if a US seller sells on the German and French sites, the default subjects will display in German and French, respectively. However, if the seller adds custom subjects through the API on these sites, the custom subjects will display in the seller's own language - English in this use case.

The GetMessagePreferences call will retrieve all custom ASQ subjects that have been set by the seller. If custom ASQ subjects have not been set up by the seller, the eBay default ASQ subjects will be returned in the Subject fields instead.
