Fields

customId ( string ) [0..1]
Need not be specified. You can define an AffiliateUserID (up to 256 characters) if you want to leverage it to better monitor your marketing efforts. If you are using the eBay Partner Network, and you provide an AffiliateUserID, the tracking URL returned by eBay Partner Network will contain the AffiliateUserID, but it will be referred to as a "customid".
See the Field Index to learn which calls use customId.
