This method is used to upload an evidence file for a contested payment dispute. The unique identifier of the payment dispute is passed in as a path parameter, and unique identifiers for payment disputes can be retrieved with the getPaymentDisputeSummaries method.
Note: The uploadEvidenceFile only uploads an encrypted, binary image file (using multipart/form-data HTTP request header), and does not have a JSON-based request payload.
Use 'file' as the name of the key that you use to upload the image file. The upload will not be successful if a different key name is used.
The three image formats supported at this time are .JPEG, .JPG, and .PNG.
After the file is successfully uploaded, the seller will need to grab the fileId value in the response payload to add this file to a new evidence set using the addEvidence method, or to add this file to an existing evidence set using the updateEvidence method.
|payment_dispute_id||string||This is the unique identifier of the payment dispute. This path parameter must be passed into the call URI to identify the payment dispute for which the user plans to upload an evidence file. This identifier is automatically created by eBay after the payment dispute comes into the eBay system. The unique identifier for payment disputes is returned in the paymentDisputeId field in the getPaymentDisputeSummaries response.|
This path parameter is required, and the actual identifier value is passed in right after the payment_dispute resource. See the Resource URI above.
