For logical or functional changes to existing features and calls, including code list changes, see Changed Functionality - 1161.

New Buyer Demand Data Available in GetCategorySpecifics

A new RelevanceIndicator container is returned in GetCategorySpecifics for item specifics if eBay has data on how many searches have been performed for listings in a specific category using that item specific.

'Buyer Demand Data' is restricted to applications that have been granted permission to access this feature. You must submit an App Check ticket to request this access. In the App Check form, add a note to the Application Title/Summary and/or Application Details fields that you want access to 'Buyer Demand Data' in GetCategorySpecifics.

Changed Functionality - 1161

This section describes logical or functional changes that have been made to existing functionality, including new code list values and/or changes in validation rules.

Changes to Final Value Fees for Managed Payments Sellers

The calculation of the Final Value Fee is changing for managed payments sellers, so the value returned in the FinalValueFee fields for each order line item in order management call responses should only be considered as estimated values. The getTransactions method of the Finances API can be used to get accurate Final Value Fee values.

See the Selling fees for managed payments sellers help page for more information about how Final Value Fees are changing for managed payments sellers.

Documentation Changes and Errata - 1161

This section lists additional documentation changes and corrections that were made with this release and that are not already mentioned in New Features - 1161 and Changed Functionality - 1161.

ListingDesigner Field in ItemType Removed from WSDL

The retiring of Listing Designer templates was already announced with Version 1157, but now the ListingDesigner field in ItemType has been removed from the 1161 Version of the WSDL. Existing listings that are already using a Listing Designer template will remain unchanged. If a seller tries to use a Listing Designer template using the ListingDesigner container, it will have no effect on the listing, but the seller will receive a warning message about Listing Designer templates no longer being available.

Old Order ID Format Values No Longer Supported in Responses

Beginning in June 2020, only the new order ID format will be returned in response payloads for paid orders, regardless of the WSDL version number or compatibility level. When the new order ID format was first introduced in June 2019, eBay gave sellers the option of using the old or the new format. To use the old Order ID format, sellers could use a WSDL older than Version 1113, or they could set the Compatibility-Level header to a value predating Version 1113. That capability is no longer available, and only new order ID values are returned for paid orders. This change affects the following calls:

New Required Item Specifics Rolled Out to Some Categories

As part of the Spring 2020 Seller Update, it was announced that new required item specifics were rolled out, or were scheduled to roll out to several categories, including Watches, Electronics, Home & Garden, Business & Industrial, Sporting Goods, Toys, and Fashion. For a complete list of specific changes to these categories, see the Item Specifics page on Seller Center.

Sellers can also use the GetCategorySpecifics call or the getItemAspectsForCategory or fetchItemAspects methods of the Taxonomy API to retrieve the latest item specifics metadata for one, multiple, or all (leaf) categories. A new Taxonomy SDK is also available to compare and discover the item specifics metadata that was recently added or changed in any of eBay's leaf categories.

Listing Designer Templates Retired

As of May 31, 2020, sellers are no longer able to use Listing Designer templates when they create or revise listings. Existing listings that are already using a Listing Designer template will remain unchanged.

If a user attempts to use the ListingDesigner container in an Add/Revise/Relist API call, it will have no effect on the listing, but the seller will receive a warning message about Listing Designer templates no longer being available.

The GetDescriptionTemplates call will still retrieve Listing Designer template data, but none of retrieved templates will be usable to create or revise a listing.

New Features - 1157

This section describes new features that have been added as of this release. New features can involve new calls, new capabilities, and/or new fields added to existing calls.

For logical or functional changes to existing features and calls, including code list changes, see Changed Functionality - 1157.

GetAccount Enhanced for Managed Payments Changes

Numerous updates were made to the GetAccount call in preparation for the new features and changes rolling out this summer for eBay managed payments. For sellers enabled for managed payments, some fees will start getting deducted from seller payouts instead of eBay adding those fees to the seller's monthly invoice. These fees include final value fees, a fixed payment processing fee, and an international fee if an order is being shipped internationally.

Because some fees will be charged to a seller right away through a deduction from a seller payout, and other fees will still be billed to the seller's monthly invoice, new capabilities were added to the GetAccount call so a seller can distinguish between which fees have already been paid, and which fees are still due and payable through a monthly invoice.

A quick summary of the changes are below:

Documentation Changes and Errata - 1157

This section lists additional documentation changes and corrections that were made with this release and that are not already mentioned in New Features - 1157 and Changed Functionality - 1157.

Clarification on PrivateListing Field

The PrivateListing field was mistakenly removed from the Trading WSDL and docs back in Version 1045, but was added back in Version 1095. Although this field was removed from WSDL, the logic for this field was never wired off and the field was still honored if provided. The PrivateListing field allows sellers to make bidders on auction listings anonymous to other fellow bidders, and only the seller can see bidders' user IDs.

Clarified the Behavior of Domestic and International Return Policies

Updated return policy-related documentation to make it more clear that if a seller does not add a separate international return policy for an item, the settings in the domestic return policy will be used instead. For more information on setting separate domestic and international return policies, see the International returns policyhelp topic.

Only New Order ID Format will be Returned for Paid Orders Beginning in April

Beginning in April 2020, only the new order ID format will be returned in response payloads for paid orders, regardless of the WSDL version number or compatibility level. From June 2019 up until now, users could control whether the new or old order ID format was returned in response payloads. This change affects the following calls:

Note that unique identifiers of orders change as they transition from 'commit to buy'/unpaid to paid orders. So, users will still be able to pass in the IDs for unpaid orders to get the status of those orders, but once orders are paid for, sellers should only use/reference the new order ID format (for paid orders), as these are the identifiers that will also be known to the buyers.

CharityNumber Field Scheduled to be Deprecated

Currently, in Add/Revise/Relist calls, sellers have an option to identify a nonprofit organization with the eBay unique identifier through the Charity.CharityID field, or they can identify the same nonprofit organization using the PayPal Giving Fund unique identifier through the Charity.CharityNumber field. The CharityNumber field has been scheduled for deprecation, so sellers using the CharityNumber field should make plans to migrate to the CharityID field instead.

The eBay unique identifier for nonprofit organizations is shown in the id attribute of each Charity container returned in the response of the GetCharities call.

ReviseCheckoutStatus Call has been Scheduled for Deprecation

The ReviseCheckoutStatus call has been staged for deprecation, and this endpoint will no longer be available toward the latter half of 2021. More specific details on exact timing will be announced at a later date. We recommend that you use the CompleteSale call instead of ReviseCheckoutStatus to update the status and/or details of your order. If your use case is to provide shipment tracking information for one or more line items of a paid order, you can use the createShippingFulfillment method of the Fulfillment API to do this task.

Changed Functionality - 1145

This section describes logical or functional changes that have been made to existing functionality, including new code list values and/or changes in validation rules.

New Behavior for PaymentStatus Field in Order Management Calls

Previously, the Succeeded enumeration value would automatically get returned in the Payment.PaymentStatus field for order payment transactions that were occurring off of eBay's platform. As of March 2020, the Pending value will get returned instead for order payment transactions occurring off of eBay's platform, and the seller can use the CompleteSale call to mark the order as paid. Once the seller does this, the payment status will change from Pending to Succeeded.

This change affects the GetOrders, GetOrderTransactions, GetItemTransactions, and GetSellerTransactions calls.

Documentation Changes and Errata - 1145

This section lists additional documentation changes and corrections that were made with this release and that are not already mentioned in New Features - 1145 and Changed Functionality - 1145.

Made Some Updates to Charity-related Documentation

There were several areas in the Call Reference documentation where it wasn't clear if a field was designed for the eBay unique identifier of a nonprofit organization or the PayPal Giving Fund unique identifier of a nonprofit organization. Below is a list of the fields in Trading that identify nonprofit organizations, and whether the values of those fields are for eBay or PayPal Giving Fund charity IDs:

Added a Note in Promotional Sale Calls Recommending Marketing API

Added a note to the SetPromotionalSale, SetPromotionalSaleListings, and GetPromotionalSaleDetails calls recommending that sellers/developers make plans to migrate to the Marketing API, which provides all Promotions Manager and Promoted Listings capabilities. The Trading API does not support Promoted Listings, and there are no plans for the Trading API to support Promoted Listing or additional Promotions Manager functionality going forward.

Added a Note About ePIDs Not Being Supported at Variation Level

Added a note to the VariationProductListingDetails.ProductReferenceID field about it not being supported for any categories. Currently, sellers cannot associate an eBay catalog product with single variations within a multiple-variation listing. If the seller attempts to supply an eBay Product Identifier (ePID) at the variation level, a warning will get returned and the ePID value will just be dropped.

Added Note and Link About View Item Description Summary Feature

Included a note and a link in the Item.Description field about the View Item Description Summary Feature. This feature allows sellers to customize the description of an item as it appears on a mobile device.

Added Site-Specific Max Length Values for Address Fields

Added site-specific max length values for several address-related fields (in AddressType), including Street1, Street2, CityName, StateOrProvince, and PostalCode. For all five of these fields, the max lengths according eBay marketplace are shown:

Added Note About DispatchCutoffTimePreference Not Being Applicable for Some Sellers

For sellers opted in to the feature that supports different same-day handling order cut off times for each business day, the CutoffTime field set in SetUserPreferences and returned in GetUserPreferences is not applicable/usable. This particular field and the DispatchCutoffTimePreference container is designed to only support one order cutoff time.If a seller wishes to view or modify their order cutoff times for same-day handling, that seller must go to Shipping Preferences in My eBay.

Category and Item Specific Changes

Category and item specific changes were rolled out as part of the 2019 Fall Seller Release.

To get more information on the category changes, and to see the full list of affected categories, go here. For sellers using the add and revise listing calls of the Trading API to add/revise items, old category IDs will automatically be remapped to new category IDs as long as the CategoryMappingAllowed boolean field is not set to false (it's set to true by default).

Item specific changes went into effect on October 15, 2019. To get more information on the item specifics changes, go here. For sellers using legacy APIs (like Trading API), we suggest that you call GetCategorySpecifics for your category to get the required and recommended item specifics for your category. To see if an item specific is required, recommended, or optional, look at the NameRecommendation.ValidationRules.UsageConstraint field for each item specific returned in the response. Sellers will be blocked from listing/revising an item if required item specifics are not included. As long as they are relevant/applicable to the item, sellers should also make sure to include recommended and optional item specifics as well, and this may make it easier for buyers to find your listings. A REST alternative to the Trading API's GetCategorySpecifics is the Taxonomy API's getItemAspectsForCategory call.

Both category metadata calls mentioned above will return the latest item specific metadata, but newly added item specific names can also be found in table format (organized by category) on this page. All of the item specific names on this page are required, so sellers can search for their listing categories on this page to make sure their listings in these categories have these item specfics.

GetAccount Updated to Retrieve Account Entries Related to a Specific Order

The GetAccount call was updated to retrieve account entries related to a specific order. To search for account entries related to a specific order, the user includes the AccountHistorySelection field in the request and sets it value to (newly-added) OrderId, and includes the newly-added OrderID field and sets its value to the unique identifier of the order. If one or more account entries are found for the specified order, the corresponding AccountEntry.OrderId will be shown for those account entries.

Changed Functionality - 1131

This section describes logical or functional changes that have been made to existing functionality, including new code list values and/or changes in validation rules.

New Error Code Added to Cover BIN Prices Exceeding Threshold

A new error code (21920255) was added to cover 'Buy it Now' prices that exceed the maximum thresdhold for a category. If a seller specifies the 'Buy it Now' price at a value above this threshold, this error code is returned and the seller is blocked from listing/revising an item.

Changes to eBay Collect and Remit Taxes

Beginning in early November, for orders subject to eBay 'Collect and Remit' taxes, PayPal will begin distributing order funds to the seller's account with the sales tax included. However, shortly after the order funds clear in the seller's account, the 'Collect and Remit' tax amount will be pulled by PayPal from the seller's account and then disributed to the appropriate taxing authority. Currently, PayPal is stripping this 'Collect and Remit' tax from the buyer's payment and directly submitting this amount to the appropriate taxing authority, and this tax amount never shows up in the sellers account.

eBay 'Collect and Remit' taxes include US state-mandated sales tax and 'Goods and Services' tax that is applicable to Australian and New Zealand sellers. To accomodate for these changes, the order management calls and the GetAccount call was updated. See the Changed Functionality section for more information about how these API calls are handling this logic change.

This change does not affect sellers that are already opted in to eBay managed payments. For these sellers, the sales tax amount will never be included in a seller payout.

Update to Order Management Calls for eBay Collect and Remit Taxes

Beginning in early November, for orders subject to eBay 'Collect and Remit' taxes, PayPal will begin distributing order funds to the seller's account with the sales tax included. eBay 'Collect and Remit' taxes include US state-mandated sales tax and 'Goods and Services' tax that is applicable to Australian and New Zealand sellers. Due to this change, the following updates were made to GetOrders (and other order management calls):

This change does not affect sellers that are already opted in to eBay managed payments. For these sellers, the sales tax amount will never be included in a seller payout. For sellers that are opted in to eBay managed payments, the 'Collect and Remit' tax will only be shown in the Transaction.eBayCollectAndRemitTaxes container, and not in the Transaction.Taxes. For sellers not opted in to eBay managed payments, both of these containers will appear in the response showing the 'Collect and Remit' tax details.

Update to GetAccount Call for eBay Collect and Remit Taxes

Six new enumeration values were added for GetAccount (in AccountDetailEntryCodeType) to account for the eBay 'Collect and Remit' tax that is distributed to the seller's account by PayPal, and then pulled from the account by PayPal and sent to the appropriate tax authority. The enumeration values include:

See these new values in AccountDetailEntryCodeType for more information.

A new OrderId field was also added to the AccountEntry container of GetAccount to indicate the order associated with the 'Collect and Remit' tax account entry.

GetCategorySpecifics Updated to Return All Available Item Specific Metadata

The GetCategorySpecifics call has been updated to return all available item specific name-value pairs by default. Before this change, 30 item specific names would be returned by default and 25 corresponding values for each returned item specific name. The maximum amount of item specific names that could be returned was 50, and this limitation was also lifted.

The MaxNames and MaxValuesPerName request filters can still be used if the user wishes to limit the number of item specific names and/or values that are returned in the GetCategorySpecifics response. To account for this change, the Max constraints and the Default values were removed from these request filter field descriptions.
