How can I get a seller's payment address?


Summary

If you have purchased an item from a seller and are in a transactional relationship, you can make a call to GetUser by specifying the seller's UserID, ItemID and DetailLevel of ReturnAll to get the seller's payment address.


Detailed Description

Here is a sample GetUser request:
 

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

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

  <Version>495</Version>

  <DetailLevel>ReturnAll</DetailLevel>

  <RequesterCredentials>

    <eBayAuthToken>*****</eBayAuthToken>

  </RequesterCredentials>

  <ItemID>110014603888</ItemID>

  <UserID>dts1</UserID>

</GetUserRequest>

You will get back the Seller's payment address in the response:
  

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

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

  <Timestamp>20070117T19:33:25.964Z</Timestamp>
