The new publishing model is available from today for MercadoLibre Argentina. During this week we will also be doing in Mexico.
And remember that in a few days, in April, will be the turn of Chile. Little by little we are improving the experience of all our vendors.


You won’t have to pay any cost for list products
. You are going to pay just the sales charge. Besides, there will be only three types of listings to choose:

Argentina

Gratuita Without cost.

-Duration: 60 days
-Available if the seller has 5 sales or less.
-Without limits for used products.

Clásica 11% per sale.

Chile

In both cases (Argentina and Mexico) *, the items location on search lists will depend on:

  • – Offer installments without interests
  • – Use MercadoEnvios
  • – Offer free shipping
  • – Ship products on time
  • – Answer buyer’s questions on time
  • – Reputation

* no apply for Chile

Items Clásica and Premium will have unlimited duration
, you could consult it from stop_time field:

curl -X GET https://api.mercadolibre.com/items/MCO415406202?attributes=stop_time

Also, this listings will be paused if stock is 0, and will be activated when you add new quantity. You’ll see the item like this:

"status": "paused",
  "sub_status": [
    "out_of_stock"
  ]

If you want to add stock and active the item again, you should do it in this way:

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -d
{
  "quantity": 1
}
https://api.mercadolibre.com/items/ITEM_ID?access_token=YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN

Don’t forget that the listing type Gratuita is going to keep the current flow.

The seller could change between the listing type Clásica and Premium every time that he wishes it without any charge, and could pause and finish the items in the same way that is working now.

If you wish to change from Premium to Clásica, you will have to follow these steps:

 curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -d
{
  "id": "gold"
}
https://api.mercadolibre.com/items/{Item_id}/listing_type?access_token=$ACCESS_TOKEN

To conclude, we want to tell you that we are creating a test environment because we want to give you all the resources to develop the feature and introduce the changes before they become effective. Soon we will contact you to share more news.
