Call that uses VerifyAddItemResponseType:

Fields



Category2ID ( string ) [0..1]
ID of the secondary category in which the item would be 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.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Category2ID.

CategoryID ( string ) [0..1]
ID of the primary category in which the item would be 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.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use CategoryID.

DiscountReason ( DiscountReasonCodeType ) [0..*]
The nature of the discount, if a discount would have applied had this actually been listed at this time.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use DiscountReason.

ExpressItemRequirements ( ExpressItemRequirementsType ) [0..1]
Not used by any call.

ExpressListing ( boolean ) [0..1]

This field is deprecated.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ExpressListing.

Fees ( FeesType ) [0..1]
Child Fee containers provide the listing feature names, fees, and possible discounts for the new item listing. The fees do not include the Final Value Fee (FVF), which cannot be determined until an item is sold.

There is no guarantee that a PromotionalDiscount returned with VerifyAddItem will be realized when the seller uses AddItem to list the same item. This is the result of the timing of certain promotions.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Fees.

ItemID ( ItemIDType (string) ) [0..1]
With a successful VerifyAddItem call, this field is always returned, but the returned value is always 0, since this call only validates the data passed in through the request payload and does not actually create an active listing.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ItemID.

ListingRecommendations ( ListingRecommendationsType ) [0..1]
Container consisting of one or more Recommendation containers. Each Recommendation container provides a message to the seller on how a listing can be improved or brought up to standard in regards to top-rated seller/listing requirements, mandated or recommended Item Specifics, picture quality requirements, pricing and/or listing format recommendations, recommended keywords and/or Item Specifics in a Title, and/or a recommendation to offer fast handling (same-day handling or handling time of 1 day) and/or a free shipping option in order to qualify the listing for a Fast 'N Free badge.

This container is only returned if the IncludeRecommendations flag was included and set to 'true' in the VerifyAddItem request, and if at least one listing recommendation exists for the listing about to be listed. If one or more listing recommendations are returned, it will be at the seller's discretion about whether to revise the listing based on eBay's listing recommendation(s) before actually creating the listing through an AddItem call.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ListingRecommendations.

ProductSuggestions ( ProductSuggestionsType ) [0..1]
Provides a list of products recommended by eBay which match the item information provided by the seller.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ProductSuggestions.
