I have a feedback score of 7 and I have PayPal as a payment method in my AddItem request to list an item on US. I am still getting error 287 - Buy It Now is not allowed. What am I missing?
If want to list an item with BuyItNowPrice, besides offering PayPal and meeting the minimum feedback score with PayPal as a payment method, you also need to link your eBay account to your PayPal account.
Here is how you can link your account:
- Log into your eBay account
- On MyeBay, Click on the Account tab
- Click on the PayPal Account link
- If your account is not linked to PayPal, you will see buttons to Sign Up and Link My PayPal Account
In order to link your PayPal account do the following:
1. Click on Link My PayPal Account
2. Enter in your test PayPal Account credentials
3. Return to eBay
4. In about 5 mins, your test PayPal account and your Sandbox eBay accounts are linked.
If the account is linked, then you will see the PayPal account information to which it is linked:
