When I try to list an Item, I get the following error:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<AddItemResponse xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">




    <ShortMessage>Unregistered user or registration not confirmed.</ShortMessage>

    <LongMessage>Unregistered users or users who have not completed their registration can not complete this request.</LongMessage>






    <ShortMessage>No Seller Account</ShortMessage>

    <LongMessage>No Seller Account</LongMessage>








How can I fix this?


After creating an account, you need to set it up as a seller account. 

To set up a seller account on Production:

To set up a seller account on Sandbox:
Sandbox does not go through the verification and validation as the production, since it is a test environment.  The easiest way to create and setup an account as a seller account at the same time, use the eBay Sandbox User Registration .  If you have already created an account, then you can make use of the API call ValidateTestUserRegistration to set up the account as a seller account.
