eBay Trading APIVersion 1367


Type defining the ReturnPolicyDetails.Refund container that is returned in GeteBayDetails. All of the values (along with descriptions for each value) that can be used as a Refund Option when listing an item is returned under the ReturnPolicyDetails.Refund container.

Note: The GeteBayDetails call returns site-default Return Policy settings. For most categories within a given eBay site, the supported Return Policy options/values are the same, but there a few exceptions. To discover what refund options that a particular category supports, call GetCategoryFeatures and include DomesticRefundMethodValues and/or InternationalRefundMethodValues as FeatureID values to see the refund options available for domestic and international returns, respectively.

Call that uses RefundDetailsType:


Description ( string ) [0..1]
Display string that applications can use to present RefundOption in a more user-friendly format (such as in a drop-down list). Not applicable as input to the AddItem family of calls. (Use RefundOption instead.)
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Description.

RefundOption ( token ) [0..1]
Indicates how the seller will compensate the buyer for a returned item. This value can be passed in the Add/Revise/Relist/VerifyAdd API calls.

Currently, on the US site (and many other sites), the seller must offer either a MoneyBack or a MoneyBackOrExchange refund option. Consider using the MoneyBackOrExchange option when you have the depth of inventory to support replacement of the original item. Otherwise, use the MoneyBack option if you have limited inventory.
