To get RuName, go to User Tokens tab-> Get a Token from eBay via Your Application -> press Add eBay Redirect URL - there will appear a setting page -> tick the box under OAuth Enabled -> get your parameter RuName (eBay Redirect URL name).On the same page (User Tokens) set up Sign-in settings.1) 2) Switch on OAuth: 3) Your auth accepted URL - here specify a URL link on which you’ll get the code, which is a very important parameter. 4) Save settings.
