In the AddItem call, I added several locations that i wanted to exclude from shipping by adding the same in the <ExcludeShipToLocation> tag of the call.

My call went through successfully, yet I don't see the exclusion list on the view item page.


For the exclusion list  to be applied to your listing you will also need to send the following tag in your listing request.

<ShipToRegistrationCountry>true</ShipToRegistrationCountry>


Attached is a sample AddFixedPriceItem request that lists an item with shipping excluded to Middle East, South America and Afghanistan. If a buyer's primary ship-to location is a location that has been listed as an excluded ship-to location (or if the buyer does not have a primary ship-to location), they will receive an error message if they attempt to buy the item.


If you want to set the exclusion list globally so that you don't have to explicitly set it for each item, you can do the following -

1. Set Exclude Shipping Locations from your listings in your Shipping Preferences


  1. Go to My eBay.
  2. Click the Account tab, and then click the Site Preferences link in the left navigation.
  3. In the Selling Preferences section, scroll to Shipping preferences, and then click the Show link.
    Click Exclude shipping locations from your listings.
  4. Select one or more continents to exclude all countries on those continents. Or select Show all countries and check the specific countries you don't want to ship to.
  5. All excluded countries you selected will appear on the lower section of the page.
  6. You can select to apply these exclusions to all current live listings on a global level.
  7. Click the Apply button to save your requirements.



2. Set Buyer requirements to Block buyers who: Are registered in countries to which I don't ship


 

  1. Go to My eBay.
  2. Click the Account tab, and then click the Site Preferences link in the left navigation.
  3. In the Selling Preferences section, scroll to Buyer requirements, and then click the Show link.
  4. Click the Edit link.
  5. On the Buyer Requirements page, select your requirements.
  6. Click the Submit button to save your requirements.


Once you create an Exclude Ship-To List, it is, by default, in effect when you list items. Specify NONE in this field to override the default Exclude Ship-To List you might have set up in My eBay and indicate that you do not want to exclude any shipping locations from the respective item listing. However, if you specify any value in ExcludeShipToLocation field on input, it nullifies the default settings in your Exclude Ship-To List. If you specify any location with this field on input, you will need to list all the locations to where you will not ship the associated item, regardless of the default settings in your Exclude Ship-To List.
