Introduction to Services_Ebay
Services_Ebay is an object-oriented abstraction layer for
eBay's XML API. In addition to a SOAP-service, eBay provides an
API, that does not follow any standards except wrapping all webservice
calls and parameters in XML. This webservice still is more powerful
than eBay's SOAP server and in addition has been heavily tested by
eBay's webservice enables you to use all of eBay's features (except
bidding on items) in your own PHP applications. The features range from
adding new items to managing the transaction, payment and shipping. Currently
there are about 70 method calls available, all accept a range of parameters.
Services_Ebay (as of version 0.7.0) already provides wrappers for 50 methods as well
as some model classes which help you working with the results from the calls.
To use this package you will need PHP5 with cURL support enabled and should be familiar
with PHP5's exception handling.
