Maybe you already have in mind a specific business need for your application. Or maybe you’re looking to break into eCommerce application development without a specific type of application in mind.

  • Sell inventory on eBay—Sell APIs

  • Allow users to buy items on eBay—Buy APIs

Important! The Buy APIs listed here are intended for certain approved eBay partners based on their application. See Get Started in a Buying Application to learn more about the application process. Acceptance of applications is based on the proposed business model, as well as a formal agreement to abide by the policies and requirements stipulated by eBay.
