Problem with creating listing in sandbox environment

I am trying to test my code by adding new orders to the account. I created two sandbox accounts and planned to use one account to sell the item and then buy it using the other account. However, when I created the listing in my sandbox account, it can never add the new listing successfully. It keeps saving and loading for seconds and just froze there. Does anyone know is there something wrong with the sandbox environment? Or is there any other way to add a testing order?

Hi @deveswif-0,


We apologize for the inconvenience that you faced. We are working on this issue. Alternatively, you can list item by Inventory API by following the below steps:

1. Use CreateOrReplaceInventoryItem call to create a record of an item for an SKU. Please go through the link given below to know more about the call.

REF: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/sell/inventory/resources/inventory_item/methods/createOrReplaceInventoryItem

2. After that use Create an offer for the same SKU by CreateOffer Call.This will give you an Offer ID in the response body. Please go through the link given below to know more about the call. REF: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/sell/inventory/resources/offer/methods/createOffer

3. After getting offerID, publish the offer by PublishOffer Call, so that it become available on the eBay marketplace. Please go through the link given below to know more about the call.

Best Regards,

Well, I've given up trying to use the Sandbox. The web based Sandbox system is just completely out of date and broken. Sandbox support via the API is better, but there are still some key differences. I develop about 50% of the time on the live system, and about 50% on sandbox. Getting any sort of support via eBay is just not gonna happen unless you're paying 75$ per hour. I suspect the sandbox is only ever worked on/repaired/updated in response to someone paying for it to be done via a support call.

Don't expect anything to change. Don't wait for something to be fixed. You'll just have to work around things not working and do as much as you can on the sandbox and complete the rest on live.
