Hello Experts,

I am trying to use the programmatic upload feature of eBay's File Exchange system to send a CSV file to eBay's file exchange server.

I am hoping for VBA code that I can put into a command button's OnClick event.

Ebay has provided the following instructions:

1.  To upload your file programmatically, send an HTTP Post request to the File Exchange
server to accept.

2. Initiate an HTTPS connection then post your data file with your token to the File Exchange URL: https://bulksell.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?FileExchangeUpload.

See Sample HTTP Post Request:


POST /path/to/upload/script HTTP/1.0
Connection: Keep-Alive
User-Agent: My Client App v1.0
Host:
https://bulksell.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?FileExchangeUpload
Content-type: multipart/form-data;
boundary=THIS_STRING_SEPARATES
Content-Length: 256
--THIS_STRING_SEPARATES
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="token"
myTokenWillGoHere
--THIS_STRING_SEPARATES
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file";
filename="MyFileName.csv"
Content-Type: text/csv
contents of listing.csv ...
 --THIS_STRING-SEPARATES
