Often used with motor listings, this dollar value indicates the initial deposit amount that a buyer must make to purchase a motor vehicle (eBay Motors). The deposit amount can be as high as $2,000.00. If not specified, this value defaults to '0.0'. If this value is specified, the seller must also specify an hoursToDeposit value.
Deposits on motor vehicles can only be paid using PayPal, so if depositAmount is specified, then one of the acceptedPaymentMethod values must be 'PayPal' (in addition to the payment methods offered for the full payment). Unlike other listings, PayPal is not automatically added to a Motors listing even if the seller has a PayPal preference set in My eBay. The seller also needs to have a linked PayPal account in order to require a deposit from the buyer.
The deposit amount appears in the shipping, payment details, and return policy sections of the View Item page.
This value indicates the number of hours the buyer has (after they commit to buy) to make an initial deposit to the seller as a down payment on a motor vehicle. Valid values are '24 HOURS', '48 HOURS' (default), and '72 HOURS'.
The deposit amount is specified in the depositAmount field. If not specified, the depositAmount value defaults to '0.0', in which case, a deposit on the vehicle is not required.
In order for a buyer to make an initial deposit on a US or CA motor vehicle, one of the acceptedPaymentMethod values must be 'PayPal' (in addition to the payment methods offered for the full payment).
