Dear Developer,

eBay is switching the certificate authority (CA) used for our public certificates. We plan to replace the existing CA from DigiCert with Sectigo (previously Comodo). This will impact all HTTPS connections. We sent several communications last year with the date for the switchover as Jan 31, 2022. We have moved this date to April 30, 2022 to give developers enough time to be prepared for this change.

We require that you start testing the Sectigo CA authority in Sandbox if not done so already. The below endpoints in Sandbox are already enabled to accept certificates from Sectigo:

Trading API: https://api.sandbox.ebay.com

Shopping API: https://open.api.sandbox.ebay.com

Finding API: https://svcs.sandbox.ebay.com

Additionally, you can refer to this KB article for more information about the steps you can take based on your use case.

On April 30, 2022, we will make the switch in production and any connections to eBay APIs using the older certificates will be rejected. Please make sure to test and plan to migrate to the new Sectigo CA before the stated timeline.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Developer Technical support.

We appreciate your continued support in making eBay better.

Sincerely,

eBay Developers Program

We're prepared for the switchover. I need to know what time this will happen on April 30th so the 3rd party developer I'm working with can be on standby in case something goes wrong.

Hilarius ;-))))) ebay usually is unable to say in which "month" something will happen, and now you want to know the "time" ? ;-))))))))))))))))) besides this funny wish you have: it doesn´t matter on what date and time that switch happens, your job is to be prepared NOW, RIGHT NOW.... and not when that switch happens... when they change certificates, nobody has to do anything because people already had months to test and do all necessary changes. there is no need to have anybody sitting and watching the clock to make a switch ;-)))
