Condition This item condition filter allows a user to filter items based on item condition. Multiple item condition filters may be used. The Condition enum value is specified in the itemfilter.name field, and either the condition ID or the condition name can be specified in the itemfilter.value field. The condition ID is actually recommended, because these identifiers are consistent across eBay categories, whereas condition names can vary slightly between eBay categories, such as 'New', 'New in Box', or 'New with Tags'.

See the Item Condition IDs and Names page to view a table that maps condition IDs to condition names.

Note: Starting in mid-September 2020, the 'Manufacturer Refurbished' item condition (Condition ID 2000) will no longer be supported on the US and Australian marketplaces. Active listings on these two marketplaces will automatically be updated by eBay to the 'Seller Refurbished' item condition (Condition ID 2500).
