Why are my eBay items not displaying the Immediate Payment feature ?

Immediate Payment is a feature of the eBay API which is specific to certain categories which contain time-sensitive listings. The Categories.Category.AutoPayEnabled node of a GetCategories XML request can be accessed to determine if a specific category ID supports Immediate Payment.

Assuming that your listing meets the criteria for Immediate Payment as referenced in the tech-note above, the below XML request is a sample which demonstrates listing an immediate pay enabled item:
