BTW, it was working fine until about two days ago when the 400s happened intermittently, but as of yesterday they are happening 100% of the time.

I'm seeing the same thing. And yes, intermittent bug turned 100% within the past day or so. Sounds like a back-end coding bug that eBay made, and it's proliferating onto all of their Merchandising API servers. (Or did they suddenly pull the plug on the Merchandising API without any announcement? Hopefully not!)

@sanjiv_developersupport any update on that? It's been a week now that it's not working! This forum is also barely functional! It's very frustrating!!!!!!

Seems to be working now. It was down for 9 days. @sanjiv_developersupport, what is the best way to notify eBay of errors like this in order to achieve a more timely resolution?
