eBay Trading APIVersion 1031

DiscountPriceInfoType

Using this container, a seller can supply original retail price and discount price for an item to clarify the discount treatment (also known as strike-through pricing). This only applies to fixed-price listings and auction listings with the Buy It Now option. This feature is available for large enterprise sellers via white list. A seller can provide discount treatment regardless of whether the listing includes a SKU.

Fields



MadeForOutletComparisonPrice ( AmountType (double) ) [0..1]
Applicable only if the item was specifically made for sale through dedicated eBay outlet pages (e.g., eBay Fashion Outlet).

The comparison price is the price of a comparable product sold through non-outlet channels on eBay (or elsewhere), or not specifically made for the outlet.

In fashion, a "comparable" product shares the same design, but is not considered an identical product. Some products are specifically made for outlets, and may have a different SKU than the "comparable" product. These made-for-outlet products may be manufactured in a different place, with different materials, or according to different specifications (i.e. different stitch pattern, seam reinforcement, button quality, etc.)
See the Field Index to learn which calls use MadeForOutletComparisonPrice.

MinimumAdvertisedPrice ( AmountType (double) ) [0..1]
Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) is an agreement between suppliers (or manufacturers (OEM)) and the retailers (sellers) stipulating the lowest price an item is allowed to be advertised at. Sellers can offer prices below MAP by means of other discounts. This only applies to fixed-price listings and auction listings with the Buy It Now option.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use MinimumAdvertisedPrice.

MinimumAdvertisedPriceExposure ( MinimumAdvertisedPriceExposureCodeType ) [0..1]
For MinimumAdvertisedPrice (MAP) listings only. A seller cannot show the actual discounted price on eBay's View Item page. Instead, the buyer can either click on a pop-up on eBay's View Item page, or the discount price will be shown during checkout.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use MinimumAdvertisedPriceExposure.

OriginalRetailPrice ( AmountType (double) ) [0..1]
The actual retail price set by the manufacturer (OEM). eBay does not maintain or validate the OriginalRetailPrice supplied by the seller. OriginalRetailPrice should always be more than StartPrice. Compare the StartPrice/BuyItNowPrice to OriginalRetailPrice to determine the amount of savings to the buyer.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use OriginalRetailPrice.

PricingTreatment ( PricingTreatmentCodeType ) [0..1]
Based on OriginalRetailPrice, MinimumAdvertisedPrice, and StartPrice values, eBay identifies whether the listing falls under MAP or STP (aka OriginalRetailPrice). GetItem returns this for items listed with one of these discount pricing treatments. GetSellerList returns the DiscountPriceInfo container. This field is not applicable for Add/Revise/Relist calls.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use PricingTreatment.

SoldOffeBay ( boolean ) [0..1]
Used by the eBay UK and eBay Germany (DE) sites, this flag indicates that the discount price (specified as StartPrice) is the price for which the seller offered the same (or similar) item for sale on a Web site or offline store other than eBay in the previous 30 days. The discount price is always in reference to the seller's own price for the item.

If this field is set to 'true', eBay displays 'Was*' in the UK and 'Ursprunglich*' in Germany, next to the discounted price of the item. In the event both SoldOffeBay and SoldOneBay fields are set, SoldOneBay takes precedence.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use SoldOffeBay.

SoldOneBay ( boolean ) [0..1]
Used by the eBay UK and eBay Germany (DE) sites, this flag indicates that the discount price (specified as StartPrice) is the price for which the seller offered the same (or similar) item for sale on eBay within the previous 30 days. The discount price is always in reference to the seller's own price for the item.

If this field is set to 'true', eBay displays 'Was' in the UK and 'Ursprunglich' in Germany, next to the discounted price of the item. In the event both SoldOffeBay and SoldOneBay fields are set to 'true', SoldOneBay takes precedence.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use SoldOneBay.
