POST/bulk_publish_offer

Note: Each listing can be revised up to 250 times in one calendar day. If this revision threshold is reached, the seller will be blocked from revising the item until the next calendar day.

This call is used to convert unpublished offers (up to 25) into published offers, or live eBay listings. The unique identifier (offerId) of each offer to publlish is passed into the request payload. It is possible that some unpublished offers will be successfully created into eBay listings, but others may fail. The response payload will show the results for each offerId value that is passed into the request payload. The errors and warnings containers will be returned for an offer that had one or more issues being published.

For those who prefer to publish one offer per call, the publishOffer method can be used instead. In the case of a multiple-variation listing, the publishOfferByInventoryItemGroup call should be used instead, as this call will convert all unpublished offers associated with an inventory item group into a multiple-variation listing.
