8. The eBay API > 115. Automate Auction Revisions

Automate Auction Revisions

Simplify the task of revising several auctions at once with the ReviseItem API call.

Once an auction has started, you can normally change most aspects of the listing using the procedure outlined in “Make Changes to Running Auctions” [Hack #65] . But it’s also possible to submit a revision using the API.

ReviseItem

Start with a simple script, reviseitem.pl, that will let you change any aspect of an active listing:

#!/usr/bin/perl
require 'ebay.pl';

my $item_id= shift @ARGV;
my %ARGS = @ARGV;

my @options = qw/AdditionalShippingCosts AmEx AutoPay BoldTitle
