I am getting the following error message:

Why am I getting this error message?


Summary

This error message indicates that the value passed in the header is invalid.  From the LongMessage tag, it indicates that US is not a valid value for X-EBAY-API-SITEID.  The SiteID needs to be a numeric value, in this case it needs to be 0 to indicate that the request needs to be routed to US.  The other header which can return a similar error message is a wrong value for the header X-EBAY-API-COMPATIBILITY-LEVEL.  This also needs to be a numeric value and is the version with which you wish to make the call.
