Script Summary: This script adds the listing start time to the eBay view item page.
This script works on the following eBay sites: COM, UK, IE, DE and AU. It adds the start time of the listing to the main information block, just below the item condition:
The script requires a valid eBay AppID, because it makes a call to the API to retrieve the start time. You will be prompted for the AppID when the script is first run.
You can obtain an AppID by registering with the eBay Developers Program here:
and then selecting "Generate production keys" once you have activated the new account. Then copy and paste the AppID string into the prompt dialog.
You only need to do this once, and it will be remembered for future use.
Bug reports and comments are welcome.
