Sample code in C# to listing an Item with ShippingServices using .NET SDK


Prior to .NET SDK version 459, ShippingService was a code type and to list an item with a shipping service, you needed to use a value of the ShippingServiceCodeType enumeration.  Since SDK version 459,  it is a token, (essentially a string).  To set a value for the Shipping Service, you need to assign a valid string.  You can get a list of all the valid ShippingService values by making a call to GeteBayDetails.  If you are on a version prior to 459, it is strongly recommended that you update your SDK to the latest version.

Detailed Description

Here is a sample C# code using .NET SDK to list an item with Shipping Services:

using System;
using eBay.Service.Call;
using eBay.Service.Core.Sdk;
using eBay.Service.Util;
using eBay.Service.Core.Soap;

namespace SDK3Examples

public class AddItem
public string AddItem(string UUID)
   AddItemCall addItem = new AddItemCall(GetContext());
    ItemType item = new ItemType();   
item.Currency = CurrencyCodeType.USD;
    item.Country = CountryCodeType.US;
    item.PaymentMethods = new BuyerPaymentMethodCodeTypeCollection();
    item.PaymentMethods.AddRange(new BuyerPaymentMethodCodeType[] {BuyerPaymentMethodCodeType.PayPal});
    item.PayPalEmailAddress = '';
    item.Title = 'title';
    item.Quantity = 1;
    item.PostalCode = '95125';
    item.ListingDuration = 'Days_7';
    item.PrimaryCategory = new CategoryType();
    item.PrimaryCategory.CategoryID = '1463';
    item.StartPrice = new AmountType();
    item.StartPrice.currencyID = CurrencyCodeType.USD;
    item.StartPrice.Value = 20;
    item.UUID = UUID;
    item.ShippingDetails = new ShippingDetailsType();
    item.ShippingDetails.ShippingServiceOptions = new ShippingServiceOptionsTypeCollection();
    ShippingServiceOptionsType[] opt = new ShippingServiceOptionsType[2];
    opt[0] = new ShippingServiceOptionsType();    
    opt[0].ShippingServiceCost = new AmountType();
    opt[0].ShippingServiceCost.currencyID = CurrencyCodeType.USD;
    opt[0].ShippingServiceCost.Value = 5;
    // ShippingService is now a string
    //Make a call to GeteBayDetails to find out the valid Shipping Service values
    opt[0].ShippingService = 'USPSPriority';
    opt[0].ShippingServicePriority = 1;

    opt[1] = new ShippingServiceOptionsType();    
    opt[1].ShippingServiceCost = new AmountType();
    opt[1].ShippingServiceCost.currencyID = CurrencyCodeType.USD;
    opt[1].ShippingServiceCost.Value = 10;
    opt[1].ShippingService = 'USPSExpressMail';
    opt[1].ShippingServicePriority = 2;

    item.ShipToLocations = new StringCollection();

    FeeTypeCollection fees = addItem.AddItem(item);
    return  item.ItemID;

    public ApiContext GetContext()
       ApiContext context = new ApiContext();

  // Credentials for the call
  context.ApiCredential.ApiAccount.Developer = 'devID';
  context.ApiCredential.ApiAccount.Application = 'appID';
  context.ApiCredential.ApiAccount.Certificate = 'certID';
  context.ApiCredential.eBayToken = 'token';

  // Set the URL
  context.SoapApiServerUrl = ''; 

  // Set logging
  context.ApiLogManager = newApiLogManager();
  context.ApiLogManager.ApiLoggerList.Add(new eBay.Service.Util.FileLogger('Messages.log', true, true, true));
  context.ApiLogManager.EnableLogging = true;

  // Set the version
  context.Version = '485';

  return context;
