Welcome to the python ebaysdk

This SDK is a programmatic interface into the eBay APIs. It simplifies development and cuts development time by standardizing calls, response processing, error handling, and debugging across the Finding, Shopping, Merchandising & Trading APIs.

Quick Example::

import datetime
from ebaysdk.exception import ConnectionError
from ebaysdk.finding import Connection

try:
    api = Connection(appid='YOUR_APPID_HERE', config_file=None)
    response = api.execute('findItemsAdvanced', {'keywords': 'legos'})        

    assert(response.reply.ack == 'Success')  
    assert(type(response.reply.timestamp) == datetime.datetime)
    assert(type(response.reply.searchResult.item) == list)

    item = response.reply.searchResult.item[0]
    assert(type(item.listingInfo.endTime) == datetime.datetime)
    assert(type(response.dict()) == dict)

except ConnectionError as e:
    print(e)
    print(e.response.dict())
