GetBestOffersRequestType ( AbstractRequestType )

This is the base request type of the GetBestOffers call. Depending on the input parameters that are used, this call can be used by a seller to retrieve all active Best Offers, all Best Offers on a specific listing, a specific Best Offer for a specific listing, or Best Offers in a specific state.

Note: The Best Offer feature is now available for auction listings on the following sites: US, Canada, UK, Germany, Australia, France, Italy, and Spain. However, sellers must choose between offering Best Offer or Buy It Now on an auction listing, as both features cannot be enabled on the same auction listing.

Call that uses GetBestOffersRequestType:

Fields

BestOfferID ( BestOfferIDType (string) ) [0..1]
The unique identifier of a Best Offer. An identifier for a Best Offer is automatically created by eBay once a prospective buyer makes a Best Offer on a Best Offer-enabled listing. If a BestOfferID value is supplied in the call request, any ItemID or BestOfferStatus values will be ignored. Only the Best Offer identified by the BestOfferID value will be returned.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use BestOfferID.

BestOfferStatus ( BestOfferStatusCodeType ) [0..1]
This field can be used if the seller wants to retrieve Best Offers in a specific state. The typical use case for this field is when the seller wants to retrieve Best Offers in all states for a specific listing. In fact, the All value can only be used if an ItemID value is also supplied in the call request. If a BestOfferID field is included in the call request, any BestOfferStatus value will be ignored since eBay will only search for and return the Best Offer identified in the BestOfferID field.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use BestOfferStatus.

ItemID ( ItemIDType (string) ) [0..1]
The unique identifier of an eBay listing. If an ItemID is used by itself in the call request, all Best Offers in all states are retrieved for this listing. However, the seller can also combine ItemID and a BestOfferStatus value if that seller only wants to see Best Offers in a specific state. If a BestOfferID field is included in the call request, any ItemID value will be ignored since eBay will only search for and return the Best Offer identified in the BestOfferID field.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ItemID.

Pagination ( PaginationType ) [0..1]
This container can be used if the seller is expecting that the GetBestOffers call will retrieve a large number of results, so that seller wishes to view just a subset (one page of multiple pages) of those results at a time. See this container's child fields for more information on how pagination is used.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Pagination.
