Type to contain the data for one eBay user. Depending on the context, the user might be the seller or the buyer in a transaction, or the bidder or winning bidder in a listing. An object of this type is returned by a number of calls, including the GetUser call.
Indicates whether the user has chosen to make their feedback score and feedback details private (hidden from other users). Note that the percentage of positive feedback can still be returned, even if other feedback details are private. If a bidder's user information is made anonymous, the value -99 is returned.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use FeedbackPrivate.
The aggregate feedback score of a user. A user's feedback score is the net positive feedback minus the net negative feedback left for the user.
Feedback scores are a quantitative expression of the desirability of dealing with a user as a buyer or a seller in transactions. Each transaction can result in one feedback entry for a given user. (The buyer can leave feedback for the seller, and the seller can leave feedback for the buyer.) That one feedback can be positive, negative, or neutral. The aggregate feedback score of a user represents that user's overall feedback score (referred to as a "feedback rating" on the eBay site). If the user has chosen to make their feedback private, then FeedbackScore is not returned and FeedbackPrivate is returned with a value of true.
If a bidder's user information is made anonymous, the value -99 is returned.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use FeedbackScore.
A seller's positive feedback score. The percentage value of a seller's positive feedback is calculated by dividing the seller's positive feedback score by their negative feedback score. The last 12 months of feedback scores are taken into consideration for this calculation.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use PositiveFeedbackPercent.
Indicates whether eBay has made this user's information anonymous. This occurs when the listing prices (reserve, current, or Buy It Now) reach or exceed a certain amount (such as $200 USD at the time of this writing).
If true, certain other fields about this user are not returned, or their values include no identifying characteristics. (The rules are explained in the description of each field.) If false, all user-specific fields contain the user's actual data.
