depositAmount ( Amount (double) ) [0..1]
This dollar value indicates the initial deposit amount that a buyer must make on a purchased motor vehicle (eBay Motors US and CA). 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.
