eBay::API::XML::Call::PlaceOffer inherits from the eBay::API::XML::BaseCall class



Container for affiliate-related tags, which enable the tracking of user activity. If you include AffiliateTrackingDetails in your PlaceOffer call, then it is possible to receive affiliate commissions based on calls made by your application. (See the <a href="" target="_blank">eBay Partner Network</a> for information about commissions.) Please note that affiliate tracking is not available in the Sandbox environment, and that affiliate tracking is not available when you make a best offer.
