DisputeActivityCodeType ( token )

Enumerated type that lists the different dispute activity enum value that can be used when the seller is creating an Unpaid Item case using the AddDisputeResponse call. The value you can use at a given time depends on the current value of DisputeState.

Note: The AddDisputeResponse call now only supports the seller updating or responding to an Unpaid Item case. This call is no longer used to respond to an Item not Received (INR) or Significantly not as Described (SNAD) dispute created through PayPal, since this is no longer an option for eBay buyers. eBay buyers must create an INR or SNAD case through eBay's Resolution Center, and Trading API dispute calls do not support eBay Money Back Guarantee cases.

To respond to an eBay Money Back Guarantee case, the seller should use the Case Management calls of the Post-Order API or manage/respond to cases manually through the eBay Resolution Center.
