eBay Trading APIVersion 1061

GetSellerEvents

Use this call to retrieve a list of the items on which a seller event has occurred. A seller event includes actions such as a revision to the item (e.g., a description change), a price change (through a bid), or the ending of an item's listing.

GetSellerEvents returns individual item data in an ItemArray object. Item data is retrieved for only the authenticated user of the call. GetSellerEvents returns zero or more items, depending on the items that have seller events within the specified time range. You can add filters so the data returned includes only items that start, end, or are modified within a certain time span.

Usage Details

Each of the date-range filters is individually optional, but a given call to GetSellerEvents must use at least one date-range filter. Multiple date-range filters may not be used in the same call.

Working With the Response

GetSellerEvents returns a list of the sellers event items into an ItemArray container. The Quantity element is only returned if it was set by the seller or by eBay.

An application might process the response in the following sequence:

  1. Traverse the collection to visit each Item object contained in the ItemArray container.
  2. Inspect the properties of each Item object to get the desired values for the listing.
  3. As applicable for the application, store the appropriate item data. If data for the same listing is already stored, update it with the new data. Comparing the new incoming data for a listing with the previously stored data allows the application to indicate to the seller what information has changed.

Best Practices

See the following FAQ for extra details: Best Practices for GetSellerEvents and GetSellerTransactions

Testing GetSellerEvents

Test GetSellerEvents in the Sandbox as follows:

  1. Register a Sandbox user (seller) and add at two or three new items for the test seller using AddItem.
  2. Some data values are returned only if the call requestor is the item seller. To test the call from the perspective of another user, execute the call using a Sandbox test user other than the one used to list the item.
  3. Use a second and third Sandbox test user to perform actions that translate into seller events, such as bidding on a auction. (The seller of an item cannot bid on his or her own item, a rule that is also enforced in the Sandbox.)
  4. For applications that create and use competitive-bid item listings (auctions), bid on the items using the Sandbox user interface before retrieving the item using GetSellerEvents. This will populate the high bidder data for items in the result set.

Argument Type Occurrence Meaning
Call-specific Input Fields [Jump to standard fields]
EndTimeFrom dateTime Conditional Describes the earliest (oldest) date to use in a time range filter based on item end time. Must be specified if EndTimeTo is specified.

Either the StartTimeFrom, EndTimeFrom, or ModTimeFrom filter must be specified. If you do not specify the corresponding To filter, it is set to the time you make the call.

For better results, the time range you use should be less than 48 hours. If 3000 or more items are found, use a smaller time range.

Include a 2-minute, overlapping buffer between requests. For example, if EndTimeTo was 6:58 in a prior request, the current request should use 6:56 in EndTimeFrom (e.g., use ranges like 5:56-6:58, 6:56-7:58, 7:56-8:58).

See KB article: Best Practices for GetSellerEvents and GetSellerTransactions.

EndTimeTo dateTime Optional Describes the latest (most recent) date to use in a time range filter based on item end time.

If you specify the corresponding From filter, but you do not include EndTimeTo, then EndTimeTo is set to the time you make the call.
HideVariations boolean Optional Specifies whether to force the response to hide variation details for multiple-variation listings.

If false (or not specified), eBay returns variation details (if any). In this case, the amount of detail can be controlled by using IncludeVariationSpecifics.

If true, variation details are not returned (and IncludeVariationSpecifics has no effect). This may be useful for applications that use other calls, notifications, alerts, or reports to track price and quantity details.
Default: false.
IncludeVariationSpecifics boolean Optional Specifies whether to force the response to include variation specifics for multiple-variation listings.

If false (or not specified), eBay keeps the response as small as possible by not returning Variation.VariationSpecifics. It only returns Variation.SKU as an identifier (along with the variation price and other selling details). If the variation has no SKU, then Variation.VariationSpecifics is returned as the variation's unique identifier.

If true, Variation.VariationSpecifics is returned. (Variation.SKU is also returned, if the variation has a SKU.) This may be useful for applications that don't track variations by SKU.

Ignored when HideVariations is set to true.

Note: If the seller includes a large number of variations in many listings, using this flag may degrade the call's performance. Therefore, when you use this flag, you may need to reduce the total number of items you're requesting at once. For example, you may need to use shorter time ranges in the StartTimeFrom, EndTimeFrom, or ModTimeFrom filters.
Default: false.
IncludeWatchCount boolean Optional The seller can include this field and set its value to true if that seller wants to see how many prospective bidders/buyers currently have an item added to their Watch Lists. The Watch count is returned in the WatchCount field for each item in the response.
ModTimeFrom dateTime Conditional Describes the earliest (oldest) date to use in a time range filter based on item modification time. Must be specified if ModTimeTo is specified. Either the StartTimeFrom, EndTimeFrom, or ModTimeFrom filter must be specified. If you do not specify the corresponding To filter, it is set to the time you make the call.

Include a 2-minute, overlapping buffer between requests. For example, if ModTimeTo was 6:58 in a prior request, the current request should use 6:56 in ModTimeFrom (e.g., use ranges like 5:56-6:58, 6:56-7:58, 7:56-8:58).

For better results, the time range you use should be less than 48 hours. If 3000 or more items are found, use a smaller time range.

If an unexpected item is returned (including an old item or an unchanged active item), please ignore the item. Although a maintenance process may have triggered a change in the modification time, item characteristics are unchanged.

See KB article: Best Practices for GetSellerEvents and GetSellerTransactions.

ModTimeTo dateTime Optional Describes the latest (most recent) date and time to use in a time range filter based on the time an item's record was modified. If you specify the corresponding From filter, but you do not include ModTimeTo , then ModTimeTo is set to the time you make the call. Include a 2-minute buffer between the current time and the ModTimeTo filter.
NewItemFilter boolean Optional If true, response includes only items that have been modified within the ModTime range. If false, response includes all items.
StartTimeFrom dateTime Conditional Describes the earliest (oldest) time to use in a time range filter based on item start time. Must be specified if StartTimeTo is specified.

Either the StartTimeFrom, EndTimeFrom, or ModTimeFrom filter must be specified.

If you do not specify the corresponding To filter, it is set to the time you make the call.

For better results, the time period you use should be less than 48 hours. If 3000 or more items are found, use a smaller time range.

Include a 2-minute, overlapping buffer between requests. For example, if StartTimeTo was 6:58 in a prior request, the current request should use 6:56 in StartTimeFrom (e.g., use ranges like 5:56-6:58, 6:56-7:58, 7:56-8:58).

See KB article: Best Practices for GetSellerEvents and GetSellerTransactions.

StartTimeTo dateTime Optional Describes the latest (most recent) date to use in a time range filter based on item start time. If you specify the corresponding From filter, but you do not include StartTimeTo, the StartTimeTo is set to the time you make the call.
UserID UserIDType (string) Optional eBay user ID for the seller whose events are to be returned. If not specified, retrieves events for the user identified by the authentication token passed in the request.

Note: Since user information is anonymous to everyone except the bidder and the seller (during an active auction), only sellers looking for information about their own listings and bidders who know the user IDs of their sellers will be able to make this API call successfully.

See Working with Anonymous User Information.

Standard Input Fields  
DetailLevel DetailLevelCodeType Optional,
repeatable: [0..*]
Detail levels are instructions that define standard subsets of data to return for particular data components (e.g., each Item, Transaction, or User) within the response payload. For example, a particular detail level might cause the response to include buyer-related data in every result (e.g., for every Item), but no seller-related data.

Specifying a detail level is like using a predefined attribute list in the SELECT clause of an SQL query. Use the DetailLevel element to specify the required detail level that the client application needs pertaining to the data components that are applicable to the request.

The DetailLevelCodeType defines the global list of available detail levels for all request types. Most request types support certain detail levels or none at all. If you pass a detail level that exists in the schema but that isn't valid for a particular request, eBay ignores it and processes the request without it.

For each request type, see the detail level tables in the Input/Output Reference to determine which detail levels are applicable and which elements are returned for each applicable detail level.

Note that DetailLevel is required input for GetMyMessages.

With GetSellerList and other calls that retrieve large data sets, please avoid using ReturnAll when possible. For example, if you use GetSellerList, use GranularityLevel instead, or use GetSellerEvents. If you do use 'ReturnAll' with GetSellerList, use a small Pagination.EntriesPerPage value and a narrow EndTimeFrom/EndTimeTo date range for better performance.

Applicable values:

ReturnAll
(in) Returns all available data. With GetSellerList and other calls that retrieve large data sets, please avoid using ReturnAll when possible. For example, if you use GetSellerList, use a GranularityLevel or use the GetSellerEvents call instead. If you use ReturnAll with GetSellerList, use a small EntriesPerPage value and a short EndTimeFrom/EndTimeTo range for better performance.

(Not all values in DetailLevelCodeType apply to this field.)
ErrorLanguage string Optional Use ErrorLanguage to return error strings for the call in a different language from the language commonly associated with the site that the requesting user is registered with. Specify the standard RFC 3066 language identification tag (e.g., en_US).

ID Country
en_AU Australia
de_AT Austria

en_IE Ireland
it_IT Italy

See Tags for the Identification of Languages.

MessageID string Optional Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

Note: GetCategories is designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, the MessageID and CorrelationID fields aren't applicable. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, MessageID and CorrelationID are applicable.
OutputSelector string Optional,
repeatable: [0..*]
You can use the OutputSelector field to restrict the data returned by a call. This field can make the call response easier to manage, especially when a large payload is returned. If you use the OutputSelector field, the output data will only include the field(s) you specified in the request, as well as all of its child fields (if a field is a container) and its parent fields (if any). Note that it is possible that a field included through an OutputSelector field may still not be returned if it is not applicable, or if it is not found based on other criteria set up in the request payload.

For example, if you are using GetItem and you only want to retrieve the URL of the View Item page (emitted in ViewItemURL field) and the item's Buy It Now price (emitted in BuyItNowPrice field), you would include two separate OutputSelector fields and set the value for each one as ViewItemURL and BuyItNowPrice as in the following example:

 If the following output selectors are used: 

...
<OutputSelector>ViewItemURL</OutputSelector>
<OutputSelector>BuyItNowPrice</OutputSelector>

...

...the response might look like the following

<Item>
<BuyItNowPrice currencyID="USD">0.0</BuyItNowPrice>
<ListingDetails>
<ViewItemURL>http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tag-Heuer-Mens-Watch/182879833261</ViewItemURL>
</ListingDetails>
</Item>

See Selecting Fields to Retrieve.

Version string Conditional The version number of the API code that you are programming against (e.g., 859). The version you specify for a call has these basic effects:
  • It indicates the version of the code lists and other data that eBay should use to process your request.
  • It indicates the schema version you are using.
You need to use a version that is greater than or equal to the lowest supported version.
For the SOAP API: If you are using the SOAP API, this field is required. Specify the version of the WSDL your application is using.

For the XML API: If you are using the XML API, this field has no effect. Instead, specify the version in the X-EBAY-API-COMPATIBILITY-LEVEL HTTP header. (If you specify Version in the body of an XML API request and it is different from the value in the HTTP header, eBay returns an informational warning that the value in the HTTP header was used instead.)

See:
    Routing the Request (Gateway URLs)
    eBay Schema Versioning Strategy
    Lowest Supported Version

WarningLevel WarningLevelCodeType Optional Controls whether or not to return warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in a request.

An unrecognized element is one that is not defined in any supported version of the schema. Schema element names are case-sensitive, so using WarningLevel can also help you remove any potential hidden bugs within your application due to incorrect case or spelling in field names before you put your application into the Production environment.

WarningLevel only validates elements; it doesn't validate XML attributes. It also doesn't control warnings related to user-entered strings or numbers, or warnings for logical errors.

We recommend that you only use this during development and debugging. Do not use this in requests performed in the Production environment.

Applicable values:

High
(in) The WarningLevel value is set to High if the user wishes to receive warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in an API call request. Setting the WarningLevel value to High is not recommended in a production environment. Instead, it should only be used during the development/debugging stage.
Low
(in) The WarningLevel value is set to Low if the user does not wish to receive warnings when the application passes unrecognized or deprecated elements in an API call request. This is the default value if WarningLevel is not specified in the call request.

See Warning Level.

Return Value Type Occurrence Meaning
Call-specific Output Fields [Jump to standard fields]
ItemArray ItemArrayType Always Collection of items whose last modified time matches the filters specified in the request. Returns empty if no items were modified within the time range of the request.

If 1 to 2999 items are returned, then the results are complete. If 3000 or more items are returned, it usually means additional items exist within the time range you requested, but they were not all returned.

To retrieve complete results, use a smaller time range in the request so that fewer than 3000 are returned per response.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See KB article: Best Practices for GetSellerEvents and GetSellerTransactions.

ItemArray.Item ItemType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..3000]
Contains the data properties that define one item listing. GetSellerEvents and GetSellerList only return items if any are available for the seller within the time window specified in the request.

Some optional fields are only returned if the seller defined them for the item. Some fields are only returned under particular conditions specified in the individual field descriptions. For example, a buyer's contact information might only be returned if the member who is making the request (as identified in the eBayAuthToken) has an order relationship with that buyer.

For calls that support detail levels, the set of fields returned is also controlled by the value of DetailLevel in the request. For some calls, other parameters in the request can also control the data returned for each item. For example, GranularityLevel controls the fields to return for each item in the GetSellerList response.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item
  .BestOfferDetails
BestOfferDetailsType Conditionally For Add/Revise/Relist/Verify calls: This container is used to enable the Best Offer feature on a listing. The Best Offer feature is not applicable for auction listings.

For GetItem and other calls that retrieve item data, this container will include the status (GetMyeBayBuying only) and dollar amount of the latest Best Offer on a fixed-price listing, and the number of Best Offers received for the fixed-price listing.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item
  .BestOfferDetails
  .BestOfferCount
int Conditionally The number of Best Offers made for this item, if any. In other words, if there are no Best Offers made, this field will not appear in the response. This field is not applicable to the Add/Revise/Relist calls.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item
  .BestOfferDetails
  .BestOfferEnabled
boolean Conditionally This field indicates whether or not the Best Offer feature is enabled for the listing. A seller can enable the Best Offer feature for a fixed-price or classified ad listing as long as the category supports the Best Offer feature. To see if an eBay category supports the Best Offer feature, run a GetCategoryFeatures call, including BestOfferEnabled as a FeatureID value in the call request payload.

A listing enabled with the Best Offer feature allows a buyer to bargain with the seller and make a lower-priced offer than the fixed price. The seller can then decide whether to accept the buyer's Best Offer price or propose a counter offer higher than the Best Offer price, but lower than the fixed price.

For a ReviseItem or ReviseFixedPriceItem call, this boolean value can only be changed (enable or disable) in a fixed-price listing if the listing has not had any sales (Best Offer or standard purchase), the listing does not have any Best Offer or counter offers pending, and the listing is not scheduled to end within 12 hours. Some large merchant accounts are enabled to revise this field through a Revise call even within 12 hours of the listing's scheduled end time, but these sellers are still subject to the other two rules - no sales of any kind for the listing, and no Best Offers or counter offers pending.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.BuyItNowPrice AmountType (double) Conditionally This field is only applicable for auction listings. By specifying a 'Buy It Now' price, a seller is allowing prospective buyers the opportunity to purchase the item in the auction listing at this price immediately. When a buyer uses the 'Buy It Now' option to purchase the item, the auction listing will end immediately.

By including this field and specifying a 'Buy It Now' price, the seller is enabling the 'Buy It Now' feature on the auction listing. If the seller includes this field for any other listing type other than an auction, this field and its price will just be ignored.

The price in this field must be at least 30 percent higher than the starting bid price (which is specified in an Add call through the Item.StartPrice field). Once a bid is made on an auction listing, and the bid meets or exceeds the Item.ReservePrice value (if set), the 'Buy It Now' option becomes unavailable, and this field will no longer be applicable. If there is no Reserve Price, the first bid will nullify the 'Buy It Now' option.

Keep in mind that GetItem (and other 'Get' calls that retrieve the Item details) may still return the BuyItNowPrice field for an auction item even if the 'Buy It Now' option is no longer available. Instead, a user should look for the ListingDetails.BuyItNowAvailable boolean field in the GetItem response to determine if the 'Buy It Now' option is still available for the auction item.

Note: For the US site, new eBay sellers are subject to Seller Limits, which limit the quantity of items that may be listed and/or the total cumulative value of these listings. While subject to these selling limits, an eBay seller can use the GetMyeBaySelling call to retrieve both the remaining number of listings they can create and the remaining cumulative value of these listings. These values are shown in the Summary.QuantityLimitRemaining and Summary.AmountLimitRemaining fields in the GetMyeBaySelling response. If a call to add an item or revise an item would result in the exceeding of these limits, the add item or revise item call will fail. These fields will only be returned if the seller is subject to seller limits.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll.
ItemArray.Item.BuyItNowPrice
  [ attribute currencyID ]
CurrencyCodeType Always This field is only applicable for auction listings. By specifying a 'Buy It Now' price, a seller is allowing prospective buyers the opportunity to purchase the item in the auction listing at this price immediately. When a buyer uses the 'Buy It Now' option to purchase the item, the auction listing will end immediately.

By including this field and specifying a 'Buy It Now' price, the seller is enabling the 'Buy It Now' feature on the auction listing. If the seller includes this field for any other listing type other than an auction, this field and its price will just be ignored.

The price in this field must be at least 30 percent higher than the starting bid price (which is specified in an Add call through the Item.StartPrice field). Once a bid is made on an auction listing, and the bid meets or exceeds the Item.ReservePrice value (if set), the 'Buy It Now' option becomes unavailable, and this field will no longer be applicable. If there is no Reserve Price, the first bid will nullify the 'Buy It Now' option.

Keep in mind that GetItem (and other 'Get' calls that retrieve the Item details) may still return the BuyItNowPrice field for an auction item even if the 'Buy It Now' option is no longer available. Instead, a user should look for the ListingDetails.BuyItNowAvailable boolean field in the GetItem response to determine if the 'Buy It Now' option is still available for the auction item.

Note: For the US site, new eBay sellers are subject to Seller Limits, which limit the quantity of items that may be listed and/or the total cumulative value of these listings. While subject to these selling limits, an eBay seller can use the GetMyeBaySelling call to retrieve both the remaining number of listings they can create and the remaining cumulative value of these listings. These values are shown in the Summary.QuantityLimitRemaining and Summary.AmountLimitRemaining fields in the GetMyeBaySelling response. If a call to add an item or revise an item would result in the exceeding of these limits, the add item or revise item call will fail. These fields will only be returned if the seller is subject to seller limits.

For a list of possible enumeration values, see CurrencyCodeType.
ItemArray.Item.Currency CurrencyCodeType Conditionally In an Add/Revise/Relist/Verify call, this required three-digit enumeration value defines the currency associated with the listing site. The item price and all costs passed in the call request will be using this currency. Similarly, the listing fees and other cost-related data will be using this currency. Since the Trading API can only be used for a select number of eBay sites, only a subset of values are supporting when adding/revising/relisting an item. These supported values are discussed in the top section of CurrencyCodeType.

In 'Get' calls, it is possible that any of the values in CurrencyCodeType may appear, as some cost-related fields will show the buyer's currency type.

Applicable values: See Currency.

ItemArray.Item.eBayPlus boolean Conditionally If true, this item is being offered under the eBay Plus program. eBay Plus is a premium account option for buyers, which provides benefits such as fast free domestic shipping and free returns on selected items. Top-Rated eBay sellers must opt in to eBay Plus to be able to offer the program on qualifying listings. Sellers must commit to next-day delivery of those items.

Note: Currently, eBay Plus is available only to buyers in Germany (DE), but this program is scheduled to come to the Austria and Australia marketplaces in the near future.

See Offering eBay Plus for more details.

ItemArray.Item
  .eBayPlusEligible
boolean Conditionally If true, this item is eligible to be listed under the eBay Plus program. eBay Plus is a premium account option for buyers, which provides benefits such as fast free domestic shipping and free returns on selected items. Top-Rated eBay sellers must opt in to eBay Plus to be able offer the program on qualifying listings. Sellers must commit to next-day delivery of those items.

Note: Currently, eBay Plus is available only to buyers in Germany (DE), but this program is scheduled to come to the Austria and Australia marketplaces in the near future.

See Offering eBay Plus for more details.

ItemArray.Item.HitCount long Conditionally This value indicates the number of page views for the listing. This number is calculated by eBay and is returned in 'Get' calls if the HitCounter value is set to BasicStyle, RetroStyle, or HiddenStyle. If the HitCounter value is set to HiddenStyle or NoHitCounter, HitCount is only returned if the one making the call is the item's seller.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.HitCounter HitCounterCodeType Always Indicates whether an optional hit counter is displayed on the item's listing page and, if so, what type. See HitCounterCodeType for specific values.

Default: NoHitCounter.

Applicable values: See HitCounter.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item
  .IsSecureDescription
boolean Conditionally This boolean field indicates whether or not the listing description is HTTPS secure/compliant. To be HTTPS secure/compliant, the Item.Description field may not contain any links to site pages that use the HTTP (and not HTTPS) protocol. This field will be returned with each listing that is found unless one or more OutputSelector fields are used and Item.IsSecureDescription is not one of the values passed in to one of these fields.

If this field is returned as true, the listing is HTTPs secure/compliant, and the whole listing description will appear on the View Item page for the listing. If this field is returned as false, the listing is not HTTPs secure/compliant, and only a partial/brief listing description will appear on the View Item page for the listing, with a link to the full listing description that will load in another tab.

If the listing description is not HTTPS compliant, the fix is to call ReviseItem or ReviseFixedPriceItem and update the Item.Description field, removing all links to HTTP pages.

For more information about why eBay made this change, please see the Policy Updates page of the Fall 2017 Seller Updates page.
ItemArray.Item.ItemID ItemIDType (string) Conditionally The unique identifier of the eBay listing. This identifier is generated by eBay and returned in the response of an Add call if an item is successfully listed. Once an item is successfully created, the ItemID cannot be modified.

Note: Although we represent item IDs as strings in the schema, we recommend you store them as 64-bit signed integers. If you choose to store item IDs as strings, allocate at least 19 characters (assuming decimal digits are used) to hold them. Your code should be prepared to handle IDs of up to 19 digits.
Max length: 19 (Note: the eBay database specifies 38. Currently, Item IDs are usually 9 to 12 digits).

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.ListingDetails ListingDetailsType Conditionally Various details about a listing, some of which are calculated or derived after the item is listed. These include the start and end time, converted (localized) prices, and certain flags that indicate whether the seller specified fields whose values are not visible to the requesting user. For GetMyeBayBuying, returned as a self-closed element if no listings meet the request criteria.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.ListingDetails
  .EndTime
dateTime Conditionally Time stamp (in GMT) when the listing is scheduled to end (calculated based on the values of StartTime and ListingDuration ) or the actual end time if the item has ended.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.ListingDetails
  .StartTime
dateTime Conditionally The StartTime value returned by non-search calls such as GetItem is the time stamp (in GMT) for when the item was listed.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.ListingType ListingTypeCodeType Conditionally The selling format of the eBay listing, such as auction (indicated with Chinese value), fixed-price (indicated with FixedPriceItem value), or classified ad (indicated with AdType value).

If this field is not included in an AddItem, AddItems, AddSellingManagerTemplate, or VerifyAddItem call, the listing type defaults to auction

For AddFixedPriceItem, RelistFixedPriceItem, or VerifyAddFixedPriceItem call, this field must be included and set to FixedPriceItem, since these calls only work with fixed-price listings.

This field is not applicable to Revise calls because the selling format of active listings cannot be changed.

Applicable values: See ListingType.

ItemArray.Item.Quantity int Conditionally For AddItem family of calls: The Quantity value for auction listings must always be 1. For a fixed-price listing, the Quantity value indicates the number of identical items the seller has available for sale in the listing. If variations are specified in AddFixedPriceItem or VerifyAddFixedPriceItem, the Item.Quantity is not required since the quantity of variations is specified in Variation.Quantity instead. See the Creating a listing with variations eBay Help page for more information on variations.

For ReviseItem and ReviseFixedPriceItem: This value can only be changed for a fixed-price listing with no variations. The quantity of variations is controlled in the Variation.Quantity field and the Item.Quantity value for an auction listing should always be 1.

For RelistItem and RelistFixedPriceItem: Like most fields, when you use RelistItem or RelistFixedPriceItem, Quantity retains its original value unless you specifically change it. This means that the item is relisted with the value that was already in Quantity, not with the remaining quantity available. For example, if the original Quantity value was 10, and three items have been sold, eBay sets the relisted item's Quantity to 10 by default, and not 7. So, we strongly recommend that you always set Quantity to the correct value (your actual quantity available) in your relist requests.

When eBay auto-renews a GTC listing (ListingDuration = GTC) on your behalf, eBay relists with correct quantity available.

For GetSellerEvents: Quantity is only returned for listings where item quantity is greater than 1.

For GetItem and related calls: This is the total of the number of items available for sale plus the quantity already sold. To determine the number of items available, subtract SellingStatus.QuantitySold from this value.

For order line item calls with variations: In GetItemTransactions, Item.Quantity is the same as GetItem (the total quantity across all variations). In GetSellerTransactions, Transaction.Item.Quantity is the total quantity of the applicable variation (quantity available plus quantity sold).

Note: For the US site, new eBay sellers are subject to Seller Limits, which limit the quantity of items that may be listed and/or the total cumulative value of these listings. While subject to these selling limits, an eBay seller can use the GetMyeBaySelling call to retrieve both the remaining number of listings they can create and the remaining cumulative value of these listings. These values are shown in the Summary.QuantityLimitRemaining and Summary.AmountLimitRemaining fields in the GetMyeBaySelling response. If a call to add an item or revise an item would result in the exceeding of these limits, the add item or revise item call will fail. These fields will only be returned if the seller is subject to seller limits.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

    Selecting a Selling Format

ItemArray.Item.SellerProfiles SellerProfilesType Conditionally This container is used if the seller would like to use/reference Business Policies to create, revise, relist, or verify their listing. The seller's account must be opted in to Business Policies to use this container. If this container is used, exactly one Payment Business Policy, one Shipping Business Policy, and one Return Business Policy is applied to the listing. If the seller's account is not opted in to Business Policies, that seller may not use this container. Sellers must opt-in to Business Policies through My eBay or by using the optInToProgram call of the eBay Account API.

If Business Policies are applied to a listing, all payment, shipping, and return policy settings in these policies will override any other payment, shipping, or return policy legacy fields that are included in the call request.

In the case of PlaceOffer, for auction listings, this field is a container for the high bidder's user ID. In the PlaceOffer response, the following applies: For multiple-quantity, fixed-price listings, the high bidder is only returned if there is just one order line item (or only for the first order line item that is created).

DetailLevel: ReturnAll.
ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus
  .HighBidder.Email
string Conditionally Email address for the user. Please see the links below to the topics related to anonymous user information and static email addresses. You cannot retrieve an email address for any user with whom you do not have an order relationship, regardless of site.

An email address of another user is only returned if you and the other user are in an order relationship, within a certain time of order line item creation (although this limitation isn't applicable to the GetAllBidders call in the case of motor vehicles categories.) Based on Trust and Safety policies, the time is unspecified and can vary by site.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag will be returned only to that bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on.

For the order retrieval calls, the buyer's registration email address is only returned if the buyer is registered on the DE, AT, or CH sites, regardless of the seller's registration site and the site to which the seller sends the request.

Max length: 64 for US. May differ for other countries. Note: The eBay database allocates up to 128 characters for this field .

DetailLevel: ReturnAll.

    Working with Anonymous User Information
    Static Email Addresses in Trading API Calls

ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus
  .HighBidder.FeedbackScore
int Conditionally The aggregate feedback score for a user. A user's feedback score is the net positive feedback minus the net negative feedback left for the user. Feedback scores are a quantitative expression of the desirability of dealing with a user as a buyer or a seller in either side of an order.

Each order line item can result in one feedback entry for a given user (the buyer can leave feedback for the seller, and the seller can leave feedback for the buyer.). That one feedback can be positive, negative, or neutral. The aggregated feedback counts for a particular user represent that user's overall feedback score (referred to as a "feedback rating" on the eBay site).

If the user has chosen to make their feedback private and that user is not the user identified in the request's authentication token, FeedbackScore is not returned and FeedbackPrivate is returned with a value of true.

In GetMyeBayBuying and GetMyeBaySelling, feedback information (FeedbackScore and FeedbackRatingStar) is returned in BidList.ItemArray.Item.Seller. For GetMyeBayBuying, the feedback score of each seller with an item having received a bid from the buyer is returned. For GetMyeBaySelling, the feedback score of the seller is returned.

GetMyeBayBuying and GetMyeBaySelling also return feedback information (FeedbackScore and FeedbackRatingStar) in BidList.ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus.HighBidder. GetMyeBayBuying returns feedback information on the high bidder of each item the buyer is bidding on. GetMyeBaySelling returns feedback information on the high bidder of each item the seller is selling.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, the real feedback score will be returned only to that bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For all other users, the value -99 is returned.

For GetOrders, GetOrderTransactions, and GetItemTransactions only: If using Trading WSDL Version 1019 or above, this field will only be returned to the buyer or seller, and no longer returned at all to third parties. If using a Trading WSDL older than Version 1019, the accurate Feedback Score for the user is returned to the buyer or seller, but a dummy value of 0 will be returned to all third parties.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll.

ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus
  .HighBidder.UserAnonymized
boolean Always Indicates whether or not the User container has been made anonymous. If true, some elements in the User container have either been removed, or had their values changed to remove identifying characteristics. If false, all expected elements are returned, and no values are changed.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag is returned as false only to the bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For all other users, this tag is returned as true.

See Working with Anonymous User Information.

ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus
  .HighBidder.UserID
UserIDType (string) Conditionally Unique eBay user ID for the user.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag contains the actual value of an ID only for that bidder, and for the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For other users, the actual value is replaced by an anonymous value, according to these rules:

When bidding on items, UserID is replaced with the value "a****b" where a and b are random characters from the UserID. For example, if the UserID = IBidALot, it might be displayed as, "I****A".

Important: In this format, the anonymous bidder ID can change for each auction. For GetMyeBayBuying only, when bidding on items: UserID is replaced with the value "a****b" where a and b are random characters from the UserID.

When bidding on items listed on the the Philippines site: UserID is replaced with the value "Bidder X" where X is a number indicating the order of that user's first bid. For example, if the user was the third bidder, UserID = Bidder 3. Note that in this Philippines site format, the anonymous bidder ID stays the same for a given auction, but is different for different auctions. For example, a bidder who is the third and then the seventh bidder in an auction will be listed for both bids as "Bidder 3". However, if that same bidder is the first bidder on a different auction, the bidder will be listed for that auction as "Bidder 1", not "Bidder 3".

For GetMyeBayBuying only, when bidding on items listed on the UK and AU sites: UserID is replaced with the string "High Bidder".

For PlaceOffer, see also SellingStatus.HighBidder.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll.

See Working with Anonymous User Information.

ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus
  .ListingStatus
ListingStatusCodeType Conditionally Specifies an active or ended listing's status in eBay's processing workflow.
  • If a listing ends with a sale (or sales), eBay needs to update the sale details (e.g., total price and buyer/high bidder) and the final value fee. This processing can take several minutes.
  • If you retrieve a sold item and no details about the buyer/high bidder are returned or no final value fee is available, use this listing status information to determine whether eBay has finished processing the listing.


Applicable values:

Active
(out) The listing is still active or the listing has ended with a sale but eBay has not completed processing the sale details (e.g., total price and high bidder). A multi-item listing is considered active until all items have winning bids or purchases or the listing ends with at least one winning bid or purchase. If the listing has ended with a sale but this Active status is returned, please allow several minutes for eBay to finish processing the listing.
Completed
(out) The listing has closed and eBay has completed processing the sale. All sale information returned from eBay (e.g., total price and high bidder) should be considered accurate and complete. Although the Final Value Fee (FVF) for FixedPriceItem and StoresFixedPrice items is returned by GetSellerTransactions and GetItemTransactions, all other listing types (excluding Buy It Now purchases) require the listing status to be Completed before the Final Value Fee is returned.
Custom
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Ended
(out) The listing has ended. If the listing ended with a sale, eBay has completed processing of the sale. All sale information returned from eBay (e.g., total price and high bidder) should be considered accurate and complete. However, the final value fee is not yet available.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus
  .QuantitySold
int Conditionally The total number of items purchased so far (in the listing's lifetime). Subtract this from Quantity to determine the quantity available.

If the listing has Item Variations, then in GetItem (and related calls) and GetItemTransactions, Item.SellingStatus.QuantitySold contains the sum of all quantities sold across all variations in the listing, and Variation.SellingStatus.QuantitySold contains the number of items sold for that variation.

In GetSellerTransactions, Transaction.Item.SellingStatus.QuantitySold contains the number of items sold in that order line item.

For order line item calls, also see Transaction.QuantityPurchased for the number of items purchased in the order line item.
In multi-variation listings, this value matches total quantity sold across all variations.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.Site SiteCodeType Conditionally The name of the site on which the item is listed. The listing site affects the business logic and validation rules that are applied to the request, which in turn affect the values that are returned in the response, as well as values that appear on the eBay site. For example, the listing site can affect the validation of Category in listing requests, international business seller requirements, the values of converted (localized) prices in responses, the item-related time stamps that are displayed on the eBay site, the visibility of the item in some types of searches (e.g., GetCategoryListings), and other information. In some cases, the rules are determined by a combination of the site, the user's registration address, and other information. You cannot change the site when you revise a listing.

When you specify Item.Site in AddItem or AddFixedPriceItem, it must be consistent with the numeric site ID that you specify in the request URL (for the SOAP API) or the X-EBAY- API-SITEID header (for the XML API).

Applicable values: See Site.
Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See:
    eBay Sites and Environments
    Specifying the Target Site
    Field Differences for eBay Sites

ItemArray.Item.Title string Conditionally This field is used to specify the title of the listing. This field is conditionally required in an Add call unless the seller successfully uses the ProductListingDetails container to find an eBay catalog product match. When the seller successfully uses an eBay catalog product to create a listing, the listing title, listing description, item specifics, and stock photo defined in the catalog product is used to create the listing.

You cannot use HTML or JavaScript in the Title. (HTML characters will be interpreted literally as plain text.)

The listing title can only be changed if the active listing has yet to have any bids or sales, and the listing does not end within 12 hours.

Max length: 80.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.Variations VariationsType Conditionally Variations are multiple similar (but not identical) items in a single fixed-price listing. For example, a T-shirt listing could contain multiple items of the same brand that vary by color and size (like "Blue, Large" and "Black, Medium"). Each variation specifies a combination of one of these colors and sizes. Each variation can have a different quantity and price. You can buy multiple items from one variation at the same time. (That is, one order line item can contain multiple items from a single variation.)

If you list in two categories, both categories must support listing with variations. See VariationsEnabled in GetCategoryFeatures to determine applicable categories.

For ReviseFixedPriceItem and RelistFixedPriceItem: Once a listing has been submitted with variations, you can't delete all the variations when you revise or relist the listing (because it would be considered a different listing). You also can't add or change variation specifics (because they are unique identifiers). However, you can delete or replace individual variations as needed to match your current inventory. If a variation has no purchases, use the Variation.Delete field to delete the variation. If it has inventory, set the Quantity to 0.

As a best practice, if you want to revise multiple variations in the same listing at the same time (i.e., within a very short period), use a single ReviseFixedPriceItem request and include all the variation revisions in the same request. If your application design requires you to revise each variation individually, then avoid using multiple parallel threads. Instead, use a serial, synchronous process. That is, wait until each revision has been processed by eBay before submitting the next revision request for another variation in the same listing.

For GetItem and related calls Only returned when a listing has variations.

For GetSellerList: Only returned when a listing has variations, IncludeVariations was set to true in the request, the DetailLevel was set to ReturnAll, and an applicable pagination value and time range were specified.

For GetItemTransactions Only returned in Item when a listing has variations and IncludeVariations was set to true in the request. (Also see Variation returned in Transaction for information about which variation was actually purchased.)

For GetSellerEvents, GetMyeBayBuying, and GetMyeBaySelling: Only returned when a listing has variations and HideVariations was set to false or not specified in the request.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See Multi-Variation Listings.

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation
VariationType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Contains data that distinguishes one item variation from another. For example, if an item varies by color and size, each Variation node specifies a combination of one of those colors and sizes.

When listing or relisting an item, you are allowed to create a listing with only one item variation, and you might have a plan to add more item variations to the listing in the future. However, if you don't plan to add other item variations in the future, we recommend that you avoid listing with only one variation, so that you avoid confusing buyers.

If you specify multiple Variation containers in an add/revise/relist/verify add call to define multiple item variations, the Variation containers must be contiguous or an error will occur. This means that you would not want to input a Pictures or a VariationSpecificsSet container in between Variation containers in an API call.

When you modify an item variation with a ReviseFixedPriceItem call, the best practice is to include all applicable fields under the Variation container, even if some of the values/settings are not being modified. The StartPrice and VariationSpecifics must be included when modifying an existing item variation, even if these values are not being changed. If a SKU value is defined for the item variation, it is strongly recommended that you include the SKU field, regardless of whether the SKU value is changing or not. If the SKU field is not included, any existing SKU value will be removed from the item variation. It is also strongly recommended that you include the Quantity field and input an accurate value, because if the Quantity field is omitted in the API call, the quantity for the item variation is set to 0.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

See Multi-Variation Listings.

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.Quantity
int Conditionally This value indicates the quantity of items in the specific variation that are available for purchase. If you set Variation.Quantity to 0 when you create, revise, or relist an item listing, the variation is dropped from the listing. To prevent this, you can set SetUserPreferences.OutOfStockControlPreference to true.

For GetItem (and other related calls that retrieve the Item object), the Variation.Quantity value indicates the total number of items associated with the variation, including the quantity available and the quantity sold. To calculate the quantity available for sale, subtract SellingStatus.QuantitySold from this value.

For RelistFixedPriceItem:
  • For an item variation that had an available quantity greater than 0 when the listing ended, the Quantity value of the item variation for the newly relisted item is set to the actual quantity available. For item variations, there is actually no QuantityAvailable field, but this value may be derived if you look at the corresponding item variation in a GetMyeBaySelling) response and subtract the Variation.QuantitySold value from the Variation.Quantity value, which represents the original Variation.Quantity value at creation time of the previous listing.
  • For item variations with an available quantity of 0 when the listing ended, the relisted item will retain the Variaton.Quantity value that was passed in at creation time of the previous listing.
So, if you are relisting an item that had one or more item variations with an available quantity of 0 when the listing ended, we strongly recommend that you pass in the correct available quantity through the corresponding Variation.Quantity field of a relist call. Alternatively, you can update the correct quantity available by using a ReviseInventoryStatus call and passing in a Quantity value, while also making sure to pass in the correct SKU value(s) to identify the correct item variation. A ReviseInventoryStatus call can be used to revise the quantity of up to four single item listings and/or item variations (from the same or different listings).

For ReviseFixedPriceItem: You can revise a variation's quantity at any time, even if it has purchases. However, unless you set the OutOfStockControlPreference boolean field of the SetUserPreferences call to true, at least one variation must remain with a non-zero quantity in order for the listing to remain active. If you set the OutOfStockControlPreference field to true, a multiple-variation listing will remain active but hidden from search even if the quantity of all variations in the listing is set to 0. When you modify a variation during revise or relist, you need to include both its StartPrice and Quantity. If you revise the Quantity value for a variation after items have already sold, specify the quantity available for sale. (eBay will automatically add the quantity sold to the value you specify.) If you set the quantity to 0 and the variation has no purchases, the variation may be dropped from the listing.

For GetSellerTransactions: See Item.Quantityinstead.

See the eBay Features Guide for more details about setting and modifying a variation's quantity.

Note: The number in the Variation.Quantity field represents the current quantity of the item variation that is available using the "Ship to home" fulfillment method. This number does not take into account any quantity of the item variation that is available through "local" fulfillment methods such as In-Store Pickup or Click and Collect. This is due to the fact that there is no current implementation (or API field) where the seller informs eBay about the quantity of item variations available through each local fulfillment method. In the case where a listing is only offering the item variations through a local fulfillment method, this value should default to 0, and the Item.IgnoreQuantity will also be returned as True.

string Conditionally Email address for the user. Please see the links below to the topics related to anonymous user information and static email addresses. You cannot retrieve an email address for any user with whom you do not have an order relationship, regardless of site.

An email address of another user is only returned if you and the other user are in an order relationship, within a certain time of order line item creation (although this limitation isn't applicable to the GetAllBidders call in the case of motor vehicles categories.) Based on Trust and Safety policies, the time is unspecified and can vary by site.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag will be returned only to that bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on.

For the order retrieval calls, the buyer's registration email address is only returned if the buyer is registered on the DE, AT, or CH sites, regardless of the seller's registration site and the site to which the seller sends the request.

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.SellingStatus
  .HighBidder.FeedbackScore
int Conditionally The aggregate feedback score for a user. A user's feedback score is the net positive feedback minus the net negative feedback left for the user. Feedback scores are a quantitative expression of the desirability of dealing with a user as a buyer or a seller in either side of an order.

Each order line item can result in one feedback entry for a given user (the buyer can leave feedback for the seller, and the seller can leave feedback for the buyer.). That one feedback can be positive, negative, or neutral. The aggregated feedback counts for a particular user represent that user's overall feedback score (referred to as a "feedback rating" on the eBay site).

If the user has chosen to make their feedback private and that user is not the user identified in the request's authentication token, FeedbackScore is not returned and FeedbackPrivate is returned with a value of true.

In GetMyeBayBuying and GetMyeBaySelling, feedback information (FeedbackScore and FeedbackRatingStar) is returned in BidList.ItemArray.Item.Seller. For GetMyeBayBuying, the feedback score of each seller with an item having received a bid from the buyer is returned. For GetMyeBaySelling, the feedback score of the seller is returned.

GetMyeBayBuying and GetMyeBaySelling also return feedback information (FeedbackScore and FeedbackRatingStar) in BidList.ItemArray.Item.SellingStatus.HighBidder. GetMyeBayBuying returns feedback information on the high bidder of each item the buyer is bidding on. GetMyeBaySelling returns feedback information on the high bidder of each item the seller is selling.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, the real feedback score will be returned only to that bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For all other users, the value -99 is returned.

For GetOrders, GetOrderTransactions, and GetItemTransactions only: If using Trading WSDL Version 1019 or above, this field will only be returned to the buyer or seller, and no longer returned at all to third parties. If using a Trading WSDL older than Version 1019, the accurate Feedback Score for the user is returned to the buyer or seller, but a dummy value of 0 will be returned to all third parties.

boolean Always Indicates whether or not the User container has been made anonymous. If true, some elements in the User container have either been removed, or had their values changed to remove identifying characteristics. If false, all expected elements are returned, and no values are changed.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag is returned as false only to the bidder, and to the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For all other users, this tag is returned as true.

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.SellingStatus
  .HighBidder.UserID
UserIDType (string) Conditionally Unique eBay user ID for the user.

Since a bidder's user info is anonymous, this tag contains the actual value of an ID only for that bidder, and for the seller of an item that the user is bidding on. For other users, the actual value is replaced by an anonymous value, according to these rules:

When bidding on items, UserID is replaced with the value "a****b" where a and b are random characters from the UserID. For example, if the UserID = IBidALot, it might be displayed as, "I****A".

Important: In this format, the anonymous bidder ID can change for each auction. For GetMyeBayBuying only, when bidding on items: UserID is replaced with the value "a****b" where a and b are random characters from the UserID.

When bidding on items listed on the the Philippines site: UserID is replaced with the value "Bidder X" where X is a number indicating the order of that user's first bid. For example, if the user was the third bidder, UserID = Bidder 3. Note that in this Philippines site format, the anonymous bidder ID stays the same for a given auction, but is different for different auctions. For example, a bidder who is the third and then the seventh bidder in an auction will be listed for both bids as "Bidder 3". However, if that same bidder is the first bidder on a different auction, the bidder will be listed for that auction as "Bidder 1", not "Bidder 3".

For GetMyeBayBuying only, when bidding on items listed on the UK and AU sites: UserID is replaced with the string "High Bidder".

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.SellingStatus
  .ListingStatus
ListingStatusCodeType Conditionally Specifies an active or ended listing's status in eBay's processing workflow.
  • If a listing ends with a sale (or sales), eBay needs to update the sale details (e.g., total price and buyer/high bidder) and the final value fee. This processing can take several minutes.
  • If you retrieve a sold item and no details about the buyer/high bidder are returned or no final value fee is available, use this listing status information to determine whether eBay has finished processing the listing.


Applicable values:

Active
(out) The listing is still active or the listing has ended with a sale but eBay has not completed processing the sale details (e.g., total price and high bidder). A multi-item listing is considered active until all items have winning bids or purchases or the listing ends with at least one winning bid or purchase. If the listing has ended with a sale but this Active status is returned, please allow several minutes for eBay to finish processing the listing.
Completed
(out) The listing has closed and eBay has completed processing the sale. All sale information returned from eBay (e.g., total price and high bidder) should be considered accurate and complete. Although the Final Value Fee (FVF) for FixedPriceItem and StoresFixedPrice items is returned by GetSellerTransactions and GetItemTransactions, all other listing types (excluding Buy It Now purchases) require the listing status to be Completed before the Final Value Fee is returned.
Custom
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Ended

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.SellingStatus
  .QuantitySold
int Conditionally The total number of items purchased so far (in the listing's lifetime). Subtract this from Quantity to determine the quantity available.

If the listing has Item Variations, then in GetItem (and related calls) and GetItemTransactions, Item.SellingStatus.QuantitySold contains the sum of all quantities sold across all variations in the listing, and Variation.SellingStatus.QuantitySold contains the number of items sold for that variation.

In GetSellerTransactions, Transaction.Item.SellingStatus.QuantitySold contains the number of items sold in that order line item.

For order line item calls, also see Transaction.QuantityPurchased for the number of items purchased in the order line item.
In multi-variation listings, this value matches total quantity sold across all variations.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.SKU
SKUType (string) Conditionally A SKU (stock keeping unit) is an identifier defined by a seller. It is only intended for the seller's use (not for buyers). Many sellers assign a SKU to an item of a specific type, size, and color. For the seller's convenience, eBay preserves the SKU on the variation, and also on corresponding order line items. This enables you (as a seller) use the SKU to reconcile your eBay inventory with your own inventory system instead of using the variation specifics. It is a good idea to track how many items of each type, size, and color are selling so that you can restock your shelves or update the variation quantity on eBay according to customer demand. (eBay does not use the SKU.)

If specified, all SKU values must be unique within the Variations node. That is, no two variations within the same listing can have the same SKU.

If you set Item.InventoryTrackingMethod to true, the variation SKU values are required and they must be unique across all the seller's active listings.

For GetItem and related calls: Only returned if the seller specified a SKU for the variation.
Max length: 80.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.StartPrice
AmountType (double) Conditionally The fixed price for this item variation. For example, a "Blue, Large" variation price could be USD 10.00, and a "Black, Medium" variation price could be USD 5.00.

Each variation requires its own price, and the prices can be different for each variation. This enables sellers to provide discounts on certain variations without affecting the price of others. Required (and always returned) for listings with variations.

You can revise a variation's price at any time (even if it has purchases). When you modify a variation during revise or relist, you need to include both its StartPrice and Quantity.

  .Variation
  .VariationProductListingDetails
VariationProductListingDetailsType Conditionally This container is used to provide one or more product identifiers for a product variation within a multiple-variation, fixed-price listing. The same product identifier type(s) must be used for all product variations within the listing. For instance, if one product variation uses ISBNs, all product variations must use ISBN values.

Note: Currently, the EAN, ISBN, or UPC fields are used to specify a Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), and the GetCategoryFeatures call is used to see if particular product identifier types are supported/required. The ProductReferenceID value was just added in Version 1057, but this field can only be used in the Sandbox environment to specify an ePID for an eBay Catalog product that is part of the Product-Based Shopping Experience mandate. For more information about PBSE, see the Product-Based Shopping Experience page.

When you include the VariationProductListingDetails container in a call, you must specify at least one GTIN or ePID (currently only available in Sandbox for PBSE catalog products). .

For ReviseItem and RelistItem only: When you revise a listing, if it ends within 12 hours, you cannot change the product identifier and you cannot remove existing product variation listing details data.

  .Variation
  .VariationProductListingDetails
  .EAN
string Conditionally This field is used if the seller wants to, or is required to identify each product variation within a multiple-variation listing by an EAN (European Article Number) value. An EAN is a unique 8 or 13-digit identifier that many industries (such as book publishers) use to identify products. The seller can use the GetCategoryFeatures or GetCategorySpecifics calls to see if an EAN is supported/required for a category.

This field is only applicable for multiple-variation listings. For a single-variation listing, if the category/product requires an EAN value, this value should be passed into the Item.ProductListingDetails.EAN field instead. Unlike single-variation listings, an eBay catalog product cannot be used to prefill product details for a multiple-variation listing.

Note: If the listing is being posted to a category that expects EAN values, 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.

  .ISBN
string Conditionally This field is used if the seller wants to, or is required to identify each product variation within a multi-variation listing by an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) value. An ISBN is a unique identifer for books. Both 10 and 13-character ISBNs are supported. When specifying a 13-character ISBN, the value must begin with either '978' or '979'. The seller can use the GetCategoryFeatures or GetCategorySpecifics calls to see if an ISBN is supported/required for a category.

This field is only applicable for multiple-variation listings. For a single-variation listing, if the category/product requires an ISBN value, this value should be passed into the Item.ProductListingDetails.ISBN field instead. Unlike single-variation listings, an eBay catalog product cannot be used to prefill product details for a multiple-variation listing.

Note: If the listing is being posted to a category that expects ISBN values, 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.

  .UPC
string Conditionally This field is used if the seller wants to, or is required to identify each product variation within a multiple-variation listing by a UPC (Universal Product Code) value. A UPC is a commonly-used identifier for many different products. The seller can use the GetCategoryFeatures or GetCategorySpecifics calls to see if a UPC is supported/required for a category.

This field is only applicable for multiple-variation listings. For a single-variation listing, if the category/product requires a UPC value, this value should be passed into the Item.ProductListingDetails.UPC field instead. Unlike single-variation listings, an eBay catalog product cannot be used to prefill product details for a multiple-variation listing.

Note: If the listing is being posted to a category that expects UPC values, 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.
Max length: 12.

DetailLevel: ReturnAll. Also returned if DetailLevel is not provided on input.
ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.VariationSpecifics
NameValueListArrayType Conditionally,
repeatable: [2..5]
A list of name/value pairs that uniquely identify the variation within the listing. All variations must specify the same set of names, and each variation must provide a unique combination of values for those names. For example, if the items vary by color and size, then every variation must specify Color and Size as names, and no two variations can specify the same combination of color and size values.

When you revise a listing that includes variations, you can change names in variation specifics by using ModifyNameList. You can also add, delete, or replace individual variations as needed to match your current inventory. Use the Variation.Delete field to delete a variation that has no sales (order line items). If the variation has sales, then set the Quantity to 0.

For GetSellerEvents To keep the GetSellerEvents response smaller, variation specifics are not returned if the variation has a SKU. If the variation has no SKU, then variation specifics are returned instead. Optionally, you can pass IncludeVariationSpecifics as true in the request to force variation specifics to be returned, even when the SKU is returned.

For the AddItem family of calls: Contains the name and value(s) for an Item Specific. Only required when the ItemSpecifics container is specified.

For the AddFixedPriceItem family of calls: The same NameValueList schema is used for the ItemSpecifics node, the VariationSpecifics node, and the VariationSpecifcsSet node.

If the listing has varations, any name that you use in the VariationSpecifics and VariationSpecificsSet nodes can't be used in the ItemSpecifics node.
When you list with Item Variations:
  • Specify shared Item Specifics (e.g., Brand) in the ItemSpecifics node.
  • Specify up to five VariationSpecifics in each Variation node.
  • Specify all applicable names with all their supported values in the VariationSpecificSet node.

ItemArray.Item.Variations
  .Variation.VariationSpecifics
  .NameValueList.Name
string Conditionally Depending on the call and context, this value is either a name of an Item/Category/Variation Specific, or a Parts Compatibility name.

For the AddItem and AddFixedPriceItem families of calls: In the Item.ItemSpecifics context, this can be any name that the seller wants to use. However, to help buyers find items more easily, it is a good idea to try to use a recommended name when possible (see GetCategorySpecifics). You can't specify the same name twice within the same listing.

For the AddFixedPriceItem family of calls: In the VariationSpecifics context, this can be any name that the seller wants to use, unless the VariationsEnabled flag is false for the name in the GetCategorySpecifics response. For example, for some categories eBay may recommend that you only use "Brand" as a shared name at the Item level, not in variations.

For the AddFixedPriceItem family of calls: In the Compatibility.NameValueList context, this value is a motor vehicle aspect such as Year, Make, and Model. A Compatibility.NameValueList container is applicable for motor vehicle parts and accessories listings.

For GetCategorySpecifics: This is a recommended (popular) name to use for items in the specified category (e.g., "Brand" might be recommended, not "Manufacturer").

For PlaceOffer: Required if the item being purchased includes Item Variations.

Note: If Brand and MPN (Manufacturer Part Number) are being used to identify product variations in a multiple-variation listing, the Brand must be specified at the item level (ItemSpecifics container) and the MPN for each product variation must be specified at the variation level (VariationSpecifics container). The Brand name must be the same for all variations within a single listing.

  .NameValueList.Value
string Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
Depending on the call and context, this value is either the value of an Item/Category/Variation Specific, a Parts Compatibility value, or a product identifier.

For the AddItem family of calls: If you specify multiple values for Item Specifics, eBay only stores the first one, unless GetCategorySpecifics indicates that the corresponding name supports multiple values.

For the AddFixedPriceItem family of calls: If you specify multiple values for Item Specifics or Variation Specifics, eBay only stores the first one, unless GetCategorySpecifics indicates that the corresponding name supports multiple values.

In VariationSpecificSet, you typically specify multiple Value fields for each name. For example, if Name = Size, you would specify all size values that you wan to offer in the listing.

For the Compatibility.NameValueList context, this is the corresponding value of a motor vehicle aspect such as Year, Make, and Model. A Compatibility.NameValueList container is applicable for motor vehicle parts and accessories listings.

For GetCategorySpecifics: The most highly recommended values are returned first. For these calls, Value is only returned when recommended values are available.

Standard Output Fields  
Ack AckCodeType Always A token representing the application-level acknowledgement code that indicates the response status (e.g., success). The AckCodeType list specifies the possible values for the Ack field.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Failure
(out) This value indicates that the call request processing failed.
Success
(out) This value indicates that the call request was processed successfully without any issues.
Warning
(out) This value indicates that the call request was successful, but processing was not without any issues. These issues can be checked in the Errors container, that will also be returned when one or more known issues occur with the call request.

(Not all values in AckCodeType apply to this field.)

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
Build string Always This refers to the specific software build that eBay used when processing the request and generating the response. This includes the version number plus additional information. eBay Developer Support may request the build information when helping you resolve technical issues.
CorrelationID string Conditionally Most Trading API calls support a MessageID element in the request and a CorrelationID element in the response. If you pass in a MessageID in a request, the same value will be returned in the CorrelationID field in the response. Pairing these values can help you track and confirm that a response is returned for every request and to match specific responses to specific requests. If you do not pass a MessageID value in the request, CorrelationID is not returned.

Note: GetCategories is designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, the MessageID and CorrelationID fields aren't applicable. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, MessageID and CorrelationID are applicable.
Errors ErrorType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
A list of application-level errors (if any) that occurred when eBay processed the request.

See Error Handling.

Errors.ErrorClassification ErrorClassificationCodeType Conditionally API errors are divided between two classes: system errors and request errors.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
RequestError
(out) An error has occurred either as a result of a problem in the sending application or because the application's end-user has attempted to submit invalid data (or missing data). In these cases, do not retry the request. The problem must be corrected before the request can be made again. If the problem is due to something in the application (such as a missing required field), the application must be changed. If the problem is a result of end-user data, the application must alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for the end-user to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, resend the request to eBay with the corrected data.
SystemError
(out) Indicates that an error has occurred on the eBay system side, such as a database or server down. An application can retry the request as-is a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, the request may be resent in its original form.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
Errors.ErrorCode token Conditionally A unique code that identifies the particular error condition that occurred. Your application can use error codes as identifiers in your customized error-handling algorithms. See the "Errors by Number" document.
Errors.ErrorParameters ErrorParameterType Conditionally,
repeatable: [0..*]
This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters
  [ attribute ParamID ]
string Conditionally This optional element carries a list of context-specific error variables that indicate details about the error condition. These are useful when multiple instances of ErrorType are returned.
Errors.ErrorParameters.Value string Conditionally This is the value of the request parameter noted in the ParamID attribute. So, if the ParamID value was ItemID, the value in this field would be the actual value of that ItemID.
Errors.LongMessage string Conditionally A more detailed description of the condition that raised the error.
Errors.SeverityCode SeverityCodeType Conditionally Indicates whether the error is a severe error (causing the request to fail) or an informational error (a warning) that should be communicated to the user.

Applicable values:

CustomCode
(out) Reserved for internal or future use.
Error
(out) The request that triggered the error was not processed successfully. When a serious application-level error occurs, the error is returned instead of the business data.

If the source of the problem is within the application (such as a missing required element), change the application before you retry the request.
  • If the problem is due to end-user input data, please alert the end-user to the problem and provide the means for them to correct the data. Once the problem in the application or data is resolved, you can attempt to re-send the request to eBay.
  • If the source of the problem is on eBay's side, An application can retry the request as-is a reasonable number of times (eBay recommends twice). If the error persists, contact Developer Technical Support. Once the problem has been resolved, the request may be resent in its original form.


See the Compatible Application Check section of the eBay Features Guide for more information.
Warning
(out) The request was processed successfully, but something occurred that may affect your application or the user. For example, eBay may have changed a value the user sent in. In this case, eBay returns a normal, successful response and also returns the warning.

When a warning occurs, the error is returned in addition to the business data. In this case, you do not need to retry the request (as the original request was successful). However, depending on the cause or nature of the warning, you might need to contact either the end user or eBay to effect a long term solution to the problem to prevent it from reoccurring in the future.

Code so that your app gracefully handles any future changes to this list.
Errors.ShortMessage string Conditionally A brief description of the condition that raised the error.
HardExpirationWarning string Conditionally Expiration date of the user's authentication token. Only returned within the 7-day period prior to a token's expiration. To ensure that user authentication tokens are secure and to help avoid a user's token being compromised, tokens have a limited life span. A token is only valid for a period of time (set by eBay). After this amount of time has passed, the token expires and must be replaced with a new token.
Timestamp dateTime Always This value represents the date and time when eBay processed the request. The time zone of this value is GMT and the format is the ISO 8601 date and time format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSSZ). See the Time Values section in the eBay Features Guide for information about this time format and converting to and from the GMT time zone.

Note: GetCategories and other Trading API calls are designed to retrieve very large sets of metadata that change once a day or less often. To improve performance, these calls return cached responses when you request all available data (with no filters). When this occurs, this time value reflects the time the cached response was created. Thus, this value is not necessarily when the request was processed. However, if you specify an input filter to reduce the amount of data returned, the calls retrieve the latest data (not cached). When this occurs, this time value does reflect when the request was processed.
Version string Always The version of the response payload schema. Indicates the version of the schema that eBay used to process the request. See the Standard Data for All Calls section in the eBay Features Guide for information on using the response version when troubleshooting CustomCode values that appear in the response.
