Search eBay for Listings that Accept PayPal

Use the eBay API to search for PayPal-enabled listings.

eBay and PayPal are a natural fit. eBay buyers love to pay with PayPal because it’s quick and easy, so the vast majority of items listed for sale on eBay accept PayPal. This hack uses the eBay API to search for listings at http://www.ebay.com that accept PayPal.

Tip

Like PayPal API applications, eBay API applications can be written using any programming language and operating system. This hack uses the eBay Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows and the C# programming language. eBay SDKs abstract away some of the implementation details of programming the API to make it easier to create an application. In addition to the SDK for .NET, eBay also provides an SDK for Java, as well as XML over HTTPS POST and SOAP interfaces. See eBay Hacks by David A. Karp (O’Reilly) for further coverage of the eBay API.
