EU VAT IOSS number - what will the address2 "decoration" look like?

In the ebay announcement it was stated that older API integrations would receive the ebay IOSS number in the address2 field as "decoration" - however no example of how this decoration would be presented was provided. It was also stated that this needed to be removed from the address field before being passed to a carrier, however its not possible to do this programmatically unless we have an example to work with. Please can someone provide an example of what the Address2 field will look like when an IOSS number is included as decoration.

Hi @khaosc-39

eBay will pass the IOSS number as part of address street 2 in API version <1211.

Shipping address street 2 decoration will not be available for versions 1211 and above.

After 1/31/2022, all shipping address street 2 decorations will be removed for all of the API versions.

Note: When generating address labels, remove the decoration as it was added to help identify IOSS transactions

Also, you will see the IOSS number in the response of call in the format mentioned below:<eBayCollectAndRemitTaxes>
<eBayReference name="IOSS">
ebayTaxNumber
</eBayReference>
</eBayCollectAndRemitTaxes>

Best regards ,
eBay Developer Support

Thank-you for the information, but you have not provided an example of how this will come through within the Address2 - how will it be decorated?

Hi, we are using the latest .NET Trading SDK and we are not seeing IOSS in the shipping address Street 2 field. It is just an empty string. Does anything need to be enabled at the account level for this info to be passed through on orders?
