Standard Requester Credentials for Making Calls

The prototypes and tables do not include the RequesterCredentials container and fields. For example, the input sections do not include eBayAuthToken. For information about authenticating requests, please refer to the guide for the API or SDK you are using. If you are using the Trading API, pass the RequesterCredentials node in the request XML as in the snippet below for most XML requests (exceptions are FetchToken and GetSessionID). In SOAP requests, pass the token and the RequesterCredentials in the SOAP header. See Standard Data for All Calls for fuller examples and information, including a SOAP example.
