Can't create an Offer in Sandbox

A week ago in a sandbox a could create an Offer on the item but currently, this feature seems to be broken. I only see "Loading" popup with a link "If not redirected automaticallly"

Will it be fixed? Is anyone else facing the same problems?

Hi @yuar-5745 ,

Please use the Trading API or Inventory API to list the item on sandbox. If you wan to use Trading API, you can use the following calls:

Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/xml/docs/Reference/eBay/StandardListingIndex.html

For listing an item by Inventory API you have to follow given steps :-

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

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

2. After that Create an offer for the same SKU by CreateOffer Call. This will give you Offer ID in response body. Please go through the link given below to know more about call.

Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/sell/inventory/resources/offer/methods/createOffer

3. After getting offerID, publish the offer by PublishOffer Call. Please go through the link given below to know more about call.

Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/sell/inventory/resources/offer/methods/publishOffer

Please refer to the guide mentioned in below, to know more about working with the Inventory API.

Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/sell/static/inventory/inventory-item-to-offer.html

Use the URL http://sandbox.ebay.com/itm/ENTER_ITEM_ID_HERE , to see the item view page on sandbox UI.

Best regards ,

Thanks for your reply and your instructions on how create an Offer usinf API calls.
But it is possible to create offers with a sandbox UI?
It was possible to do it just a week ago, but now this feature seems to be broken.
I only can see this popup

I should clarify. I use Trading API to create fixed price listings and it is working fine.
The part that isn’t working is the buyer placing an offer on the listing.
