Hello, I'm developing a dropshipping app of mine which will allow the dropshippers to create copies of their existing products on ebay in another store like : shopify, woocommerce. That been said in order for that to happen, users must provide their API keys. But the thing is they get the keys from the "eBay Developers Program" on which they don't have their existing store or products. Because as you know the products are located on the official eBay portal "
ebay.com" I was wondering if anyone of you knows how can i get the direct api keys to manage and transfer the existing products directly from the source, or transfer them from
ebay.com to eBay Developers Program, so i would spare the users from creating new products all over again the "production mode of eBay Developers Program" Thank you so much in advance ! Kindly,
Hi marouan_5, If you want your application to make eBay API calls on the behalf of a seller, you need to create a user token. The Trading API works with [auth-n-auth tokens] or the [OAuth access tokens]. The RESTful eBay APIs work with OAuth access tokens only. In each case, a user token requires a user permission grant, which is managed through a special flow that requires an eBay sign-in. Sellers should not have application credentials unless they have have created their own application to manage their inventory programmatically. Regardless, application credentials should not be shared. The [eBay API License Agreement] specifically forbids collecting and storing personal information, including application keys and eBay member username and password. I hope that helps. Regards, Curtis, eBay Developers Program :
