How can I convert Store Items to Auctions items using the API like I can do using MyeBay?


Using the website, via MyeBay you can convert a Stores Inventory Format Item to an Auction by selecting the stores fixed price item and clicking the Send to Online Auction button.  Alternatively, you can make it a Fixed Price Item by clicking on the Send to Fixed Price button.

  Store Inventory actions:       


What actually happens is that the Stores item is ended and a new item is created.  

To simulate this via the API, you need to make a call to EndItem and make a call to AddItem with the ListingType set appropriately.  For auction items, set it to Chinese for single quantity items and Dutch for multi-quantity items.  For Fixed Price Item, set the Listing Type to FixedPriceItem.

You can find information on the API calls on End Item and AddItem from the documentation
