eBay Trading APIVersion 1161

ProductRequiredCodeType ( token )

This enumerated type contains the values that indicate whether or not a product brand within an eBay category requires association with an eBay catalog product.

Note: Due to the rollback of the Product-Based Shopping Experience mandate for all eBay categories (and brands within those categories), the ValidationRules.ProductRequired field will not get returned for any brands within any eBay category. Due to this fact, the ProductRequiredCodeType is currently not applicable.

Enumeration Values

Value Description
CustomCode Reserved for internal or future use.
Disabled If this enumeration value is returned for a product brand within a category, the eBay seller is not expected to use an eBay catalog product when creating or revising their listing in this category for this product brand.
Enabled If this enumeration value is returned for a product brand within a category, the eBay seller should use an eBay catalog product when creating or revising their listing in this category for this product brand. Using an eBay catalog product for the specific category/brand to create/revise the listing is not a hard mandate, but it is necessary if the seller would like the listing to appear in product-based listing search results.
