updateBooth

updateBooth requests that a given seller's booth be updated. This will change all items in the "ready for sale" status into the "for sale" status. Note that, because booth updating happens asynchronously, there may be a wait of 1-10 minutes (more for booths with thousands of items) until all items have been activated.

Note also that if a booth has not gone through its initial activation process - wherein the seller provides their selling details and agrees to the Bonanza terms of service - then this call will not fail.

If the booth you are updating has more than 40k items, then your call will be processed asynchronously. The response will be:

{ 'resultMessage' => "Booth queued for update", 'success' => true }
