eBay Trading APIVersion 983

GetUser

Use this call to retrieve data for a single, registered eBay user.

Usage Details

GetUser takes as input the eBay user ID for the user whose data you want to review, or the item ID of a successfully concluded listing in which the requestor and target user were participants as buyer and seller in the order.

A successful call returns the data for the specified user in a User container. Site-specific information (such as a subscription to SellingManagerPro) and non-site-specific information (such as registration date) is also returned. Site-specific information depends on the site you specify in the request, while non-site-specific information does not depend on the specified site.

After retrieving the user information, you can:

  1. Inspect the properties of the User container to get the needed data values for the eBay user.
  2. As applicable for the application, store the data for later use.

Sellers who engage in cross-border trading on sites that require a recoupment agreement must agree to the recoupment terms before adding items to the site. This agreement allows eBay to reimburse a buyer during a dispute and then recoup the cost from the seller. The list of the sites where a user has agreed to the recoupment terms is returned in the GetUser response.

Testing GetUser

Before using GetUser, create one or two test users in the Sandbox. Some data (like email addresses) is returned only under certain conditions (see Email Privacy Policy). Test GetUser with the requestor accessing data for another user and with retrieving the requestor's own data.

GetUser will only return CharityAffiliationDetails if the user is a registered charity seller with the eBay Giving Works provider. Contact Developer Support to get test Sandbox users that are set up as registered charity sellers.

Argument Type Occurrence Meaning
Call-specific Input Fields [Jump to standard fields]
IncludeFeatureEligibility boolean Optional If the IncludeFeatureEligibility flag is included and set to 'true', the call response will include a QualifiesForSelling flag which indicates if the eBay user is eligible to sell on eBay, and a IncludeFeatureEligibility container which indicates which selling features are available to the user.
ItemID ItemIDType Optional Specify the item ID for a successfully concluded listing in which the requestor and target user were participants (one as seller and the other as buyer). Necessary to return certain data (like an email address). Not necessary if the requestor is retrieving their own data. ItemID is an optional input.
Max length: 19 (Note: The eBay database specifies 38. Currently, Item IDs are usually 9 to 12 digits).
UserID string Optional Specify the user whose data you want returned by the call. UserID is optional. If not specified, eBay returns data pertaining to the requesting user (as specified with the eBayAuthToken).
Standard Input Fields  
DetailLevel DetailLevelCodeType Optional,
repeatable: [0..*]
Detail levels are instructions that define standard subsets of data to return for particular data components (e.g., each Item, Transaction, or User) within the response payload. For example, a particular detail level might cause the response to include buyer-related data in every result (e.g., for every Item), but no seller-related data.

Specifying a detail level is like using a predefined attribute list in the SELECT clause of an SQL query. Use the DetailLevel element to specify the required detail level that the client application needs pertaining to the data components that are applicable to the request.

The DetailLevelCodeType defines the global list of available detail levels for all request types. Most request types support certain detail levels or none at all. If you pass a detail level that exists in the schema but that isn't valid for a particular request, eBay ignores it and processes the request without it.

For each request type, see the detail level tables in the Input/Output Reference to determine which detail levels are applicable and which elements are returned for each applicable detail level.

Note that DetailLevel is required input for GetMyMessages.

With GetSellerList and other calls that retrieve large data sets, please avoid using ReturnAll when possible. For example, if you use GetSellerList, use GranularityLevel instead, or use GetSellerEvents. If you do use 'ReturnAll' with GetSellerList, use a small Pagination.EntriesPerPage value and a narrow EndTimeFrom/EndTimeTo date range for better performance.

Applicable values:

ReturnAll
(in) Returns all available data. With GetSellerList and other calls that retrieve large data sets, please avoid using ReturnAll when possible. For example, if you use GetSellerList, use a GranularityLevel or use the GetSellerEvents call instead. If you use ReturnAll with GetSellerList, use a small EntriesPerPage value and a short EndTimeFrom/EndTimeTo range for better performance.
ReturnSummary
(in) Returns the summary data. For GetMyMessages, this detail level returns the same data whether or not you include MessageIDs or AlertIDs in the request. Returns up to 10 FolderID and FolderName values. Currently, this detail level is the only way to retrieve FolderID and FolderName values. See GetMyMessages for a code sample that demonstrates this.

(Not all values in DetailLevelCodeType apply to this field.)
ErrorLanguage string Optional Use ErrorLanguage to return error strings for the call in a different language from the language commonly associated with the site that the requesting user is registered with. Specify the standard RFC 3066 language identification tag (e.g., en_US).

See Tags for the Identification of Languages.

MessageID string Optional Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

Note: GetCategories is designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, the MessageID and CorrelationID fields aren't applicable. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, MessageID and CorrelationID are applicable.
Version string Conditional The version number of the API code that you are programming against (e.g., 859). The version you specify for a call has these basic effects:
  • It indicates the version of the code lists and other data that eBay should use to process your request.
  • It indicates the schema version you are using.
You need to use a version that is greater than or equal to the lowest supported version.
For the SOAP API: If you are using the SOAP API, this field is required. Specify the version of the WSDL your application is using.

For the XML API: If you are using the XML API, this field has no effect. Instead, specify the version in the X-EBAY-API-COMPATIBILITY-LEVEL HTTP header. (If you specify Version in the body of an XML API request and it is different from the value in the HTTP header, eBay returns an informational warning that the value in the HTTP header was used instead.)

See:
    Routing the Request (Gateway URLs)
    eBay Schema Versioning Strategy
    Lowest Supported Version

WarningLevel WarningLevelCodeType Optional Controls whether or not to return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request.

An unrecognized element is one that is not defined in any supported version of the schema. Schema element names are case-sensitive, so using WarningLevel can also help you remove any potential hidden bugs within your application due to incorrect case or spelling in field names before you put your application into the Production environment.

WarningLevel only validates elements; it doesn't validate XML attributes. It also doesn't control warnings related to user-entered strings or numbers, or warnings for logical errors.

We recommend that you only use this during development and debugging. Do not use this in requests performed in the Production environment.

Applicable values:

High
(in) The WarningLevel value is set to High if the user wishes to receive warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in an API call request. Setting the WarningLevel value to High is not recommended in a production environment. Instead, it should only be used during the development/debugging stage.
Low
(in) The WarningLevel value is set to Low if the user does not wish to receive warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in an API call request. This is the default value if WarningLevel is not specified in the call request.

See Warning Level.

User.eBayGoodStanding boolean Conditionally If true, indicates that the user is in good standing with eBay.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.eBayWikiReadOnly boolean Always Indicates whether a user has read-only access to the eBay Wiki (true) or whether the user is able contribute or edit articles on the eBay Wiki (false). By default, all registered eBay users have access to contribute and edit articles on the eBay Wiki. All content contributed to the eBay Wiki is subject to the Community Content Policy.
Default: false.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.EIASToken string Conditionally Unique identifier for the user that does not change when the eBay user name is changed. Use when an application needs to associate a new eBay user name with the corresponding eBay user.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See Working with Anonymous User Information.

User.Email string Conditionally Email address for the user. Please see the links below to the topics related to anonymous user information and static email addresses. You cannot retrieve an email address for any user with whom you do not have an order relationship, regardless of site.

An email address of another user is only returned if you and the other user are in an order relationship, within a certain time of order line item creation (although this limitation isn't applicable to the GetAllBidders call in the case of motor vehicles categories.) Based on Trust and Safety policies, the time is unspecified and can vary by site.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag will be returned only to that bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on.

For the order retrieval calls, the buyer's registration email address is only returned if the buyer is registered on the DE, AT, or CH sites, regardless of the seller's registration site and the site to which the seller sends the request.
Max length: 64 for US. May differ for other countries. Note: The eBay database allocates up to 128 characters for this field .

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See:
    Working with Anonymous User Information
    Static Email Addresses in Trading API Calls

User.EnterpriseSeller boolean Always Reserved for internal or future use.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.FeedbackPrivate boolean Conditionally Indicates whether the user has chosen to make their feedback score and feedback details private (hidden from other users). The percentage of positive feedback can still be returned, even if other feedback details are private.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag will be returned only to that bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See Working with Anonymous User Information.

User.FeedbackRatingStar FeedbackRatingStarCodeType Conditionally Visual indicator of user's feedback score. See FeedbackRatingStarCodeType for specific values.

Applicable values:: See FeedbackRatingStar.
Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.FeedbackScore int Conditionally The aggregate feedback score for a user. A user's feedback score is the net positive feedback minus the net negative feedback left for the user. Feedback scores are a quantitative expression of the desirability of dealing with a user as a buyer or a seller in either side of an order.

Each order line item can result in one feedback entry for a given user (the buyer can leave feedback for the seller, and the seller can leave feedback for the buyer.). That one feedback can be positive, negative, or neutral. The aggregated feedback counts for a particular user represent that user's overall feedback score (referred to as a "feedback rating" on the eBay site).

If the user has chosen to make their feedback private and that user is not the user identified in the request's authentication token, FeedbackScore is not returned and FeedbackPrivate is returned with a value of true.

In GetMyeBayBuying and GetMyeBaySelling, feedback information (FeedbackScore and FeedbackRatingStar) is returned in BidList.ItemArray.Item.Seller. For GetMyeBayBuying, the feedback score of each seller with an item having received a bid from the buyer is returned. For GetMyeBaySelling, the feedback score of the seller is returned.

GetMyeBayBuying and GetMyeBaySelling also return feedback information (FeedbackScore and FeedbackRatingStar) in BidList.ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus.HighBidder. GetMyeBayBuying returns feedback information on the high bidder of each item the buyer is bidding on. GetMyeBaySelling returns feedback information on the high bidder of each item the seller is selling.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, the real feedback score will be returned only to that bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For all other users, the value -99 is returned.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See Working with Anonymous User Information.

User.IDVerified boolean Conditionally Indicates whether the user has been verified. For more information about the ID Verify program, see: Protecting your account

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.PayPalAccountLevel PayPalAccountLevelCodeType Conditionally The user's PayPal account level. Only returned for the user identified in eBayAuthToken. That is, you cannot see someone else's PayPal account level. Use this information to check whether a seller is eligible to list digital downloadable items. See the eBay Web site online help for current PayPal requirements for listing digital items.

Applicable values:: See PayPalAccountLevel.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.PositiveFeedbackPercent float Conditionally Percent of total feedback that is positive. For example, if the member has 50 feedbacks, where 49 are positive and 1 is neutral or negative, the positive feedback percent could be 98.0. The value uses a max precision of 4 and a scale of 1. If the user has feedback, this value can be returned regardless of whether the member has chosen to make their feedback private. Not returned if the user has no feedback.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.QualifiesForSelling boolean Conditionally This flag indicates whether or not the user is eligible to sell items on eBay. This field is only returned if the IncludeFeatureEligibility flag is included in the call request and set to true.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.RegistrationAddress AddressType Conditionally This container consists of the Registration address for the eBay user making the call.

GetUser: eBay returns complete RegistrationAddress details (including Phone), as applicable to the registration site for the eBay user making the call.

GetItem and GetSellerTransactions: RegistrationAddress for another user (except for Phone) is only returned if you have an order relationship with that user AND that user is registered on DE/AT/CH, regardless of your registration site and the site to which you send the request. For example, the seller can see the buyer's registration address if the buyer is registered on DE/AT/CH, or the buyer can see the seller's registration address if the seller is registered on DE/AT/CH. (The buyer and seller won't see their own registration addresses in GetItem.)

DetailLevel: ReturnAll.
User.RegistrationAddress
  .CityName

  .UniquePositiveFeedbackCount

Feedback scores are a quantitative expression of the desirability of dealing with that person as a Buyer or a Seller on either side of an order. Each order line item can result in one feedback entry for a given user (the buyer can leave feedback for the seller, and the seller can leave feedback for the buyer).

Feedback can be positive, negative, or neutral. The aggregated feedback counts for a particular user represent that user's overall feedback score (referred to as a "feedback rating" on the eBay site). This rating is commonly expressed as the eBay Feedback score for the user.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll, ReturnSummary. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
User.UserID UserIDType Conditionally Unique eBay user ID for the user.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag contains the actual value of an ID only for that bidder, and for the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For other users, the actual value is replaced by an anonymous value, according to these rules:

When bidding on items, UserID is replaced with the value "a****b" where a and b are random characters from the UserID. For example, if the UserID = IBidALot, it might be displayed as, "I****A".

Important: In this format, the anonymous bidder ID can change for each auction. For GetMyeBayBuying only, when bidding on items: UserID is replaced with the value "a****b" where a and b are random characters from the UserID.

When bidding on items listed on the the Philippines site: UserID is replaced with the value "Bidder X" where X is a number indicating the order of that user's first bid. For example, if the user was the third bidder, UserID = Bidder 3. Note that in this Philippines site format, the anonymous bidder ID stays the same for a given auction, but is different for different auctions. For example, a bidder who is the third and then the seventh bidder in an auction will be listed for both bids as "Bidder 3". However, if that same bidder is the first bidder on a different auction, the bidder will be listed for that auction as "Bidder 1", not "Bidder 3".

For GetMyeBayBuying only, when bidding on items listed on the UK and AU sites: UserID is replaced with the string "High Bidder".

For PlaceOffer, see also SellingStatus.HighBidder.

Ack AckCodeType Always A token representing the application-level acknowledgement code that indicates the response status (e.g., success). The AckCodeType list specifies the possible values for the Ack field.

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Failure
(out) This value indicates that the call request processing failed.
Success
(out) This value indicates that the call request was processed successfully without any issues.
Warning
(out) This value indicates that the call request was successful, but processing was not without any issues. These issues can be checked in the Errors container, that will also be returned when one or more known issues occur with the call request.

(Not all values in AckCodeType apply to this field.)

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
Build string Always This refers to the specific software build that eBay used when processing the request and generating the response. This includes the version number plus additional information. eBay Developer Support may request the build information when helping you resolve technical issues.
CorrelationID string Conditionally Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

Note: GetCategories is designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, the MessageID and CorrelationID fields aren't applicable. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, MessageID and CorrelationID are applicable.
Errors ErrorType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
A list of application-level errors (if any) that occurred when eBay processed the request.

See Error Handling.

Errors.ErrorClassification ErrorClassificationCodeType Conditionally API errors are divided between two classes: system errors and request errors.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
RequestError
(out) An error has occurred either as a result of a problem in the sending application or because the application's end-user has attempted to submit invalid data (or missing data). In these cases, do not retry the request. The problem must be corrected before the request can be made again. If the problem is due to something in the application (such as a missing required field), the application must be changed. If the problem is a result of end-user data, the application must alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for the end-user to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, resend the request to eBay with the corrected data.
SystemError
(out) Indicates that an error has occurred on the eBay system side, such as a database or server down. An application can retry the request as-is a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, the request may be resent in its original form.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
Errors.ErrorCode token Conditionally A unique code that identifies the particular error condition that occurred. Your application can use error codes as identifiers in your customized error-handling algorithms. See the "Errors by Number" document.

This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters
  [ attribute ParamID ]
string Conditionally This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters.Value string Conditionally This is the value of the request parameter noted in the ParamID attribute. So, if the ParamID value was ItemID, the value in this field would be the actual value of that ItemID.
Errors.LongMessage string Conditionally A more detailed description of the condition that raised the error.
Errors.SeverityCode SeverityCodeType Conditionally Indicates whether the error is a severe error (causing the request to fail) or an informational error (a warning) that should be communicated to the user.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Error
(out) The request that triggered the error was not processed successfully. When a serious application-level error occurs, the error is returned instead of the business data.

If the source of the problem is within the application (such as a missing required element), change the application before you retry the request.
  • If the problem is due to end-user input data, please alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for them to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, you can attempt to re-send the request to eBay.
  • If the source of the problem is on eBay's side, An application can retry the request as-is a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, the request may be resent in its original form.


See the Compatible Application Check section of the eBay Features Guide for more information.
Warning
(out) The request was processed successfully, but something occurred that may affect your application or the user. For example, eBay may have changed a value the user sent in. In this case, eBay returns a normal, successful response and also returns the warning.

When a warning occurs, the error is returned in addition to the business data. In this case, you do not need to retry the request (as the original request was successful). However, depending on the cause or nature of the warning, you might need to contact either the end user or eBay to effect a long term solution to the problem to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
Errors.ShortMessage string Conditionally A brief description of the condition that raised the error.
HardExpirationWarning string Conditionally Expiration date of the user's authentication token. Only returned within the 7-day period prior to a token's expiration. To ensure that user authentication tokens are secure and to help avoid a user's token being compromised, tokens have a limited life span. A token is only valid for a period of time (set by eBay). After this amount of time has passed, the token expires and must be replaced with a new token.
Timestamp dateTime Always This value represents the date and time when eBay processed the request. The time zone of this value is GMT and the format is the ISO 8601 date and time format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSSZ). See the Time Values section in the eBay Features Guide for information about this time format and converting to and from the GMT time zone.

Note: GetCategories and other Trading API calls are designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, this time value reflects the time the cached response was created. Thus, this value is not necessarily when the request was processed. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, this time value does reflect when the request was processed.
Version string Always The version of the response payload schema. Indicates the version of the schema that eBay used to process the request. See the Standard Data for All Calls section in the eBay Features Guide for information on using the response version when troubleshooting CustomCode values that appear in the response.
