I am trying to use 'AddItem' to add a Good Til' Cancelled Buy It Now item to eBay in the category: Business, Office & Industrial > Power Tools > Tool Parts & Accessories I get the following error: 83 : Duration Invalid. The duration "GTC" day(s) is not available for this listing type, or invalid for category "11705". I know I'm able to list GTC Buy It Now listings in that category as we have hundreds already. I've pasted my XML input below, I hope somebody can help? ********** en_US High Test Description. 11705 10.00 1000 true US GBP 1 FixedPriceItem GTC MPN T35T PayPal

You are telling eBay that the item should be listed on the US site where the category 11705 does not exist. You need to ensure that the HTTP header `X-EBAY-API-SITEID` is set to `3` and that `UK` is used in the request. This will ensure the item is listed on the UK site.
Thank you for your reply but category 11705 does exist on the the US site, I've already used the API successfully to list a 30 day buy it now item within that category. (just doesn't work for GTC) Thank you for explaining how to change to the UK site though, I tried changing country to UK and it threw an invalid country error so I assumed the API only worked on the US site and gave up. After a quick Google I found that the "Country" needs to be "GB" and I changed "Site" to "UK" as suggested. This didn't fix my initial problem though, even after these changes I still get the same error returned from eBay: 83 : Duration Invalid. The duration "GTC" day(s) is not available for this listing type, or invalid for category "11705". Any more ideas?
