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.

Detailed Description

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:
