Item Specifics

HI

 

I have problem to post listings using item specifics. All values looks set up correctly, but still its throwing an error. Especially last line is interesting: This category does not support item specifics, but some of the vales are mandatory...

 

Exception Details: eBay.Service.Core.Sdk.ApiException: The item specific "Month" is required.
The item specific "Day" is required.
The item specific "Ticket Face Value" is required.
The item specific "Year" is required.
This category does not support item specifics.

 

Here is XML string saved just before Add Item Call:

Just a update...

Couple days ago following XML has produce auction like: 

http://cgi.sandbox.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110096777350#ht_500wt_922

Auction posted today with exactly same source throu API Test Tool looks like: 

http://cgi.sandbox.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110096906176&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:GB:1123#ht_500wt_922

 

definitly there is something wrong with item specifics.

All categories now seem to report and not supporting variations as well.

 

I think someone somewhere has broken the sandbox!

I've been having trouble posting on the sandbox as well, I'm also having trouble with the GetAttributesXSLCall in the sandbox

Ya, my current theory is the March 26th update was started on and they broke things in the process. Just a guess tho...

 

Variations, Item Specifics both appear to have been broken as of earlier this week.
