true if the seller wishes to create a private listing.

true indicates the listing corresponds to the eBay product associated with the provided product identifier. The product identifier is provided in createOrReplaceInventoryItem.
Note: Though the includeCatalogProductDetails parameter is not required to be submitted in the request, the parameter defaults to
true if omitted.
HTML tags and markup can be used in listing descriptions, but each character counts toward the max length limit.
Note: To ensure that their short listing description is optimized when viewed on mobile devices, sellers should strongly consider using eBay's View Item description summary feature when listing their items. Keep in mind that the 'short' listing description is what prospective buyers first see when they view the listing on a mobile device. The 'full' listing description is also available to mobile users when they click on the short listing description, but the full description is not automatically optimized for viewing in mobile devices, and many users won't even drill down to the full description.
Using HTML div and span tag attributes, this feature allows sellers to customize and fully control the short listing description that is displayed to prospective buyers when viewing the listing on a mobile device. The short listing description on mobile devices is limited to 800 characters, and whenever the full listing description (provided in this field, in UI, or seller tool) exceeds this limit, eBay uses a special algorithm to derive the best possible short listing description within the 800-character limit. However, due to some short listing description content being removed, it is definitely not ideal for the seller, and could lead to a bad buyer experience and possibly to a Significantly not as described (SNAD) case, since the buyer may not get complete details on the item when viewing the short listing description. See the eBay help page for more details on using the HTML div and span tags.
Max length: 500000 (which includes HTML markup/tags)
GTC, but auction listings support different listing durations.

It is required that the seller be opted into Business Policies before being able to create live eBay listings through the Inventory API. Sellers can opt-in to Business Policies through My eBay or by using the Account API's optInToProgram call.

The sell Account API can also be used to create and manage custom policies. For more information, see the sell Account API.
For example: 2023-05-30T19:08:00Z.

true, but a buyer's purchase will not involve sales tax.

Note: Sales-tax tables are available only for the US and Canada marketplaces.Refer to Taxes and import charges for more information on setting up and using a sales tax table.
