Here are the steps for adding the web reference:

1.  Right click on your project in the Solutions Explorer and choose Add Service Reference.

2.  Click on the Advanced button

3.  Click on Add Web Service Reference

4.  Enter the URL for the latest version of the WSDL and click go

5.  It will find one service - ebaySvc and set the web reference name to com.ebay.developer
     If you choose, you can change the name
