addItem: You have not specified in my eBay whether you are a private or business seller


I have received the following response while trying to do an addItem post in my sandbox:
"You have not specified in my eBay whether you are a private or business seller."

In my sandbox account (testuser_dienaseTEST) I'm registered as an individual/private user, so I don't know what to change, how to proceed here. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @poehlen,

Sandbox account testuser_dienaseTEST was not specified as an private user.

Now I have specified testuser_dienaseTEST as private account.

Can you Please retry the call now.

Hi @raghupalak-0,

You can use this link to change your test user's account type:
https://scgi.sandbox.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ChangeRegistrationAccountType&guest=1

After you submit the change, you will be redirected to the eBay Sandbox home page.
