This field is used to specify whether or not to retrieve Parts Compatiblity information. If true, any compatible applications associated with the item will be returned in the response ( Item.ItemCompatibilityList). If no compatible applications have been specified for the item, no item compatibilities will be returned.
If false or not specified, the response will return a compatibility count (ItemCompatibilityCount) when parts compatibilities have been specified for the item.
Parts Compatibility is supported in limited Parts & Accessories categories for the eBay US Motors (site ID 100) and eBay Germany (site ID 77) sites only.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use IncludeItemCompatibilityList.
If true, the response returns the ItemSpecifics node (if the listing has custom Item Specifics).
Item Specifics are well-known aspects of items in a given category. For example, items in a washer and dryer category might have an aspect like Type=Top-Loading; whereas items in a jewelry category might have an aspect like Gemstone=Amber.
(This does not cause the response to include ID-based attributes. To also retrieve ID-based attributes, pass DetailLevel in the request with the value ItemReturnAttributes or ReturnAll.)
See the Field Index to learn which calls use IncludeItemSpecifics.
Specifies the ItemID that uniquely identifies the item listing for which to retrieve the data.
ItemID is a required input in most cases. SKU can be used instead in certain cases (see the description of SKU). If both ItemID and SKU are specified for items where the inventory tracking method is ItemID, ItemID takes precedence.
Retrieves an item that was listed by the user identified in AuthToken and that is being tracked by this SKU.
A SKU (stock keeping unit) is an identifier defined by a seller. Some sellers use SKUs to track complex flows of products and information on the client side. eBay preserves the SKU on the item, enabling you to obtain it before and after an order line item is created. (SKU is recommended as an alternative to ApplicationData.)
In GetItem, SKU can only be used to retrieve one of your own items, where you listed the item by using AddFixedPriceItem or RelistFixedPriceItem, and you set Item.InventoryTrackingMethod to SKU at the time the item was listed. (These criteria are necessary to uniquely identify the listing by a SKU.)
Either ItemID or SKU is required in the request. If both are passed, they must refer to the same item, and that item must have InventoryTrackingMethod set to SKU.
A unique identifier for an order line item (transaction). An order line item is created when a buyer commits to purchasing an item.
Since you can change active multiple-quantity fixed-price listings even after one of the items has been purchased, the TransactionID is associated with a snapshot of the item data at the time of the purchase.
After one item in a multi-quantity listing has been sold, sellers can not change the values in the Title, Primary Category, Secondary Category, Listing Duration, and Listing Type fields. However, all other fields are editable.
Specifying a TransactionID in the GetItem request allows you to retrieve a snapshot of the listing as it was when the order line item was created.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use TransactionID.
Variation-level SKU that uniquely identifes a Variation within the listing identified by ItemID. Only applicable when the seller listed the item with Variation-level SKU (Variation.SKU) values. Retrieves all the usual Item fields, but limits the Variations content to the specified Variation. If not specified, the response includes all Variations.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use VariationSKU.
Name-value pairs that identify one or more Variations within the listing identified by ItemID. Only applicable when the seller listed the item with Variations. Retrieves all the usual Item fields, but limits the Variations content to the specified Variation(s). If the specified pairs do not match any Variation, eBay returns all Variations.
To retrieve only one variation, specify the full set of name/value pairs that match all the name-value pairs of one Variation.
To retrieve multiple variations (using a wildcard), specify one or more name/value pairs that partially match the desired variations. For example, if the listing contains Variations for shirts in different colors and sizes, specify Color as Red (and no other name/value pairs) to retrieve all the red shirts in all sizes (but no other colors).
See the Field Index to learn which calls use VariationSpecifics.
