Getting 'invalid_product_id' error with orders endpoint in advanced trade

With the advanced trade api, I’m getting an error with these parameters with the endpoint /api/v3/brokerage/orders:

uuid = str(uuid.uuid1())
{'client_order_id': uuid, 'product_id': 'BTC-USD', 'side': 'BUY', 'order_configuration': {'market_market_ioc': {'quote_size': 0.0001}}}

This is the result I’m getting:

{'error': 'INVALID_ARGUMENT', 'error_details': 'Invalid product_id', 'message': 'Invalid product_id'}

I checked my api permissions and both create orders and read wallets are checked per this, and I tried different product ids and still got the same response. I’m stumped.

Hello @limitedabilities! Welcome to the forum community.

We understand that you get 'error' : 'INVALID_ARGUMENT' with the Create Order endpoint of Advance Trade API. However, we recommend you to change the value of data field quote_size as the "quote_min_size" for the product_id BTC-USD is "1".

You may check the min and max quote_size for all the product_ids using the List Products endpoint and for any specific product by Get Product endpoint.

We hope this helps. Please let us know if you still face the issue.

Thank you, and have a great day ahead!

Hi - thanks for your response. I updated the quote_size to 1 and tried a few other pairs - and I’m still getting the same error.
