Hey all, has anyone ever dealt with Ebays API before. There docs are pretty dam useless.

So from what i understand you send someone to a URL to approve your Application, This gives you a session id to get a Auth'n'Auth token, Then every hour you can use the Auth'n'Auth token to get a OAuth token. Confusing right.

This is the docs they give you https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-authorization-code-grant.html

I have tried to by pass the first bit as i already have the Auth'N'Auth token and this is the code so far

def EbayToken():
    client_id = "#"
    client_secret = "#"
    encodedData = base64.b64encode(bytes(f"{client_id}:{client_secret}", "ISO-8859-1")).decode("ascii")
    authorization_header_string = f"Authorization: Basic {encodedData}"

    headers = {"Authorization": "Basic " + encodedData, "Content-Type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"}

    data = {
        'grant_type': 'authorization_code',
        ' refresh_token': '#',
        ' scope': 'https://api.ebay.com/oauth/api_scope/sell.account  https://api.ebay.com/oauth/api_scope/sell.inventory'

    response = requests.post('https://api.ebay.com/identity/v1/oauth2/token', headers=headers, data=data)
    data = response.json()
    print(json.dumps(data, indent=10))

the # are my secret parts but when run it always brings back a empty query. Any help would be amazing :D
