Fields

Brand ( string ) [0..1]
The brand of the product. eBay searches against the names that are publicly available in eBay's product catalogs. This means you can specify the well-known brand name that an average user would recognize. Both Brand and MPN must be specified if the BrandMPN container is used.

Note: The BrandMPN container (and eBay catalog product lookup) is not supported for multiple-variation listings. For multiple-variation listings that use MPNs, the Brand value should be specified through an ItemSpecifics.NameValueList container, and the Manufacturer Part Numbers (MPNs) for each product variation should be specified through a VariationSpecifics.NameValueList container.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Brand.

MPN ( string ) [0..1]
The manufacturer part number of the product. Use the value specified by the manufacturer. (eBay removes special characters and spaces to normalize the values in order to find a match.) eBay searches against the part numbers for products that are publicly available in eBay's product catalogs. Both Brand and MPN must be specified if the BrandMPN container is used.

Note: If the listing is being posted to a category that expects a MPN value, but one doesn't exist for the product, the seller must pass in the text that can be found in the ProductDetails.ProductIdentifierUnavailableText field of the GeteBayDetails response. To get the ProductDetails container to return in the GeteBayDetails response, ProductDetails should be included as a DetailName value in the call request.
Note: The BrandMPN container (and eBay catalog product lookup) is not supported for multiple-variation listings. For multiple-variation listings that use MPNs, the Brand value should be specified through an ItemSpecifics.NameValueList container, and the Manufacturer Part Numbers (MPNs) for each product variation should be specified through a VariationSpecifics.NameValueList container.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use MPN.
