As a seller, why I am not receiving SellerClosedDispute or SellerOpenDispute Notifications ?

Detailed Description

    The reason Seller Dispute Notifications not being delivered to seller is that SellerClosedDispute as well as SellerOpenDispute and SellerRespondedToDispute Platform Notification applies to buyers not sellers. To workaround this, an application can use GetUserDisputes or GetDispute Trading APIs to retrieve seller's dispute.

   1. One can  make GetUserDisputes to obtain a list of disputes the requester is involved, and check the UserRole to determine if the dispute is opened by Seller or Buyer.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetUserDisputesRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
  <RequesterCredentials>
    <eBayAuthToken>xxxxx</eBayAuthToken>
  </RequesterCredentials>
  <DetailLevel>ReturnAll</DetailLevel>
  <DisputeFilterType>AllInvolvedDisputes</DisputeFilterType>
  <Pagination>
    <EntriesPerPage>200</EntriesPerPage>
    <PageNumber>1</PageNumber>
  </Pagination></GetUserDisputesRequest>
