Codisto Channel Cloud does not support the eBay Sandbox environment.

So instead of working around those inconsistencies, we chose not so support the Sandbox, but instead implement functionality that made it's use unnecessary.
The most common reason we get asked about eBay Sandbox is to preview listings especially while editing templates.
It is easy to see the effect of template changes on the listing. Any product can be previewed via the XpressGrid, even if it is not published as a listing.

Each eBay marketplace has a number of test categories where you can list products without worrying about them being sold (e.g. Lots More > Test Auctions. Just put "TEST LISTING" at the beginning of the title and description.
