createItemPriceMarkdownPromotion

POST
/item_price_markdown
This method creates an item price markdown promotion (know simply as a "markdown promotion") where a discount amount is applied directly to the items included the promotion. Discounts can be specified as either a monetary amount or a percentage off the standard sales price. eBay highlights promoted items by placing teasers for the items throughout the online sales flows.

Unlike an item promotion, a markdown promotion does not require the buyer meet a "threshold" before the offer takes effect. With markdown promotions, all the buyer needs to do is purchase the item to receive the promotion benefit.

Important: There are some restrictions for which listings are available for price markdown promotions. For details, see Promotions Manager requirements and restrictions.

In addition, we recommend you list items at competitive prices before including them in your markdown promotions. For an extensive list of pricing recommendations, see the Growth tab in Seller Hub.

There are two ways to add items to markdown promotions:

  • Key-based promotions select items using either the listing IDs or inventory reference IDs of the items you want to promote. Note that if you use inventory reference IDs, you must specify both the inventoryReferenceId and the associated inventoryReferenceType of the item(s) you want to include the promotion.
  • Rule-based promotions select items using a list of eBay category IDs or seller Store category IDs. Rules can further constrain items in a promotion by minimum and maximum prices, brands, and item conditions.

New promotions must be created in either a DRAFT or a SCHEDULED state. Use the DRAFT state when you are initially creating a promotion and you want to be sure it's correctly configured before scheduling it to run. When you create a promotion, the promotion ID is returned in the Location response header. Use this ID to reference the promotion in subsequent requests (such as to schedule a promotion that's in a DRAFT state).

Tip: Refer to Promotions Manager in the Selling Integration Guide for details and examples showing how to create and manage seller promotions.

Markdown promotions are available on all eBay marketplaces. For more information, see Promotions Manager requirements and restrictions.

Note: Offer-type text is a teaser that's presented throughout the buyer's journey through the sales flow and is generated by eBay. This text is not editable by the seller—it's derived from the settings in the discountRules and discountSpecification fields—and can be, for example, "20% off".

Marketplace (eBay) category IDs
While we do not publish a list of eBay category IDs, you can retrieve the list of IDs as follows:
  • Get the category ID from the marketplace site:
    1. Use the Taxonomy API to retrieve a list of category IDs for any marketplace.
    2. For any marketplace, add /sch/allcategories/all-categories to the URL of the marketplace and navigate to that page.
      For example: http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/allcategories/all-categories
    3. Navigate to the category that you want and copy the ID from the URL.
  • For the US: See Category Changes for the latest list of category IDs.

  1. Go to Seller Hub > Marketing.
  2. Click Manage store categories.
    You will see a list of your store categories.
  3. At the bottom of the list, click All Categories.
