A merchant's seller account must be active before they can use any of the eBay seller services. The getPrivileges method retrieves the status of the seller account via the sellerRegistrationCompleted flag, which is set to true when the seller account is activated. getPrivileges also returns the merchant's selling limit in the sellingLimit container.

Call getPrivileges using the following URI; the request does not use a request body or URI parameters:


The request returns a response similar to the following:

    "sellingLimit": {
        "amount": {
            "value": "100.0",
            "currency": "USD"
        "quantity": 10
    "sellerRegistrationCompleted": true

To increase your selling limit, see the Increasing your call limits section on the Support for application development page.
