(C#) Get Ebay OAuth2 Token using Client Credentials Grant Flow

See more eBay Examples

Demonstrates how to get a Ebay OAuth2 access token using the client credentials grant flow.

There are two ways of "minting" an OAuth2 access token.

  1. The authorization code grant flow (https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-authorization-code-grant.html) This is where your app will be accessing another person's eBay account. It's an interactive process and requires the account owner's permission to get the access token the 1st time. After that, it can be refreshed indefinitely without user interaction.
  2. The client credentials grant flow (this example) (https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-client-credentials-grant.html) This is where you access your own eBay account. It's non-interactive and you can do it in automated services where user-interaction is not possible.

For more information, see https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-client-credentials-grant.html
