Why are my eBay items not displaying the Immediate Payment feature ?

Immediate Payment is a feature of the eBay API which is specific to certain categories which contain time-sensitive listings. The Categories.Category.AutoPayEnabled node of a GetCategories XML request can be accessed to determine if a specific category ID supports Immediate Payment.

Assuming that your listing meets the criteria for Immediate Payment as referenced in the tech-note above, the below XML request is a sample which demonstrates listing an immediate pay enabled item:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<AddItemRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
<Description>You are bidding on one Roseville USA pottery iris vase. This dual-handled vase has a blue/green finish with a yellow flower stem and a white iris flower that is glazed in a non-glossy, matte finish. The handles are intricately crafted and round out this stylish, art deco vase. This piece is in excellent conditon with no cracks or chips and very minor crazing.</Description>
