Quick guide to list an item in Motors eBay Australia - http://cars.ebay.com.au/

 

Note: When making these calls the Site ID in your header should be 15

 

1) Use GetCategorySpecifics API call with the category where you want to list your motor item. Note that you can only list in leaf categories.

 

Let’s say for example you want to list in

Category ID: 66471

Category Name: Cars, Bikes, Boats:Car, Truck Parts:Wheels, Tyres:Tyres

------------------------

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<GetCategorySpecificsRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">

  <Version>747</Version>

  <CategoryID>66471</CategoryID>

  <RequesterCredentials>

    <eBayAuthToken>ABC…123</eBayAuthToken>

  </RequesterCredentials>

</GetCategorySpecificsRequest>

 

 

Now identify NameRecommendations that suits you item.

 

2) Make the AddItem call by including the custom item specifics with its respective values.
