Migration from Trading API to Inventory API

Hi there, how to migrate our listings from Trading API to Inventory API? Some eBay listing features are not yet supported in the Inventory API, but listings with features can be migrated, and the features will remain on the listings. There is MigrateListings call allows a seller to convert one to five eBay listings per call. How exactly does it work? Our Products are already listet, they allready exist with all features (Trading API). We would like to use both of those APIs. Thanks for your help. Erika

Hi erkost-92, Use the [bulkMigrateListing][1] method of the Inventory API to migrate your active listings created with the Trading API (or Large Merchant Services or the eBay web site) to the new inventory, location, and offer model. Please see the Migrating Listings to Inventory API Objects topic in the Selling Integration Guide for additional information.

Hi erkost-92, The Inventory API manages a seller's inventory, using a model of inventory, locations, and offers. The Trading API does not directly support this model, so the two APIs are not compatible. If you create listings/offers with the Trading API, you cannot revise them with the Inventory API and vice versa. The Inventory API's bulkMigrateListing method maps the data associated with an active listing created with the Trading API (or Large Merchant Services or the eBay web site) to the new inventory, location, and offer model. Once a listing/offer is migrated, you cannot use the Trading API to revise it, you must use the Inventory API to maintain the offer (or the inventory or the location) going forward.
