Invalid storename

Hi, I used to list a user's items from its userID by : Obtaining its store name with a call to shopping/GetUserProfile (and read storename) Calling findItemsIneBayStores, with the storename as parameter to have my paginated list. Since a few days, while the first step still returns me store names, the second step almost always fails with the message Invalid store name. Have you guys experimented a similar issue ? Or may someone point me to a recent change I didn't notice ? Thanks

Hi, I've got the same problem with the findItemsIneBayStoresRequest. I've specified UK as store but I still get the invalid store name error. My code has been working for 2-3 years without issue and has now stopped working. Has anyone found a workaround for this yet? I've tried the same request in API Explorer and that isn't working either, so it's not me. Thanks

Having the same issue in the production environment, PYTHON code that is working and ebay store didn't change name, now I always receive the Invalid Store Error 5 when searching for FindInEbayStores.

Recurring issue. If they fix the store name issue, it's just going to break again. Make sure you are requesting the correct eBay site for the store. Use the seller's name instead of the store name to get items. https://forums.developer.ebay.com/questions/19029/finditemsinebaystores-store-not-found-errors.html https://forums.developer.ebay.com/questions/23144/finditemsinebaystores-finditemsadvanced-invalid-st.html?childToView=23146#answer-23146

I've exactly the same issue (in the production environment), and reading other posts, many others are experiencing it too - code that's been working suddenly stops with the invalid store name error. Interestingly, the example given in the Finding docs also returns the same error: [ https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/finding/callref/findItemsIneBayStores.html#Samples][1] [1]: https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/finding/callref/findItemsIneBayStores.html#Samples

Hi, My eBay developper username is cdtx. As an example here is the command I used to use for listing my own catalog : Endpoint : https://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1 (production) Body : ``version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"> Mister-Auto-Deutschland 1 `` This request worked since at least one year. Now it outputs the following : `` Failure 5 Marketplace Error Request Invalid store name Search< Mister-Auto-Deutschland 1.13.0 2020-01-23T15:50:58.814Z `` (sorry I didn't manage to print a pretty XML)
