I'm getting a 503 when trying to use http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping

Hi, I'm currently trying to make requests to the shopping API but i'm getting a 503 error when I go to the page. Is the service unavailable or has it been moved? Thanks,

Hi, I'm not directly hitting it, i'm trying to build an API call to talk to it, but I thought if the API call was incorrect it would throw a nice error instead of a 503? So it got me thinking as to why it doesn't return a nice error message instead of a 503.

Hi, Can you please let us know the reason you are directly trying to hit the Shopping API's endpoint: http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping? You need to use it with an API Call. You can first try all your API Calls via the API Test Tool: https://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/build-test/test-tool/ and see if they work fine and then try implementing it. Cheers!!!
