The Buy It Now Price of the item (if any), in the currency of the site on which the item was listed.
For Chinese auctions (Quantity=1, competitive bidding online auctions), Buy It Now lets a user purchase the item at a fixed price and end the auction immediately. On most sites, after a Chinese auction has bids, the listing is no longer eligible for Buy It Now. However, calls can still return the Buy It Now Price that the seller set for the listing. Use the item.bidCount field to determine whether an auction with Buy It Now has bids or not.
Some eBay sites also support Buy It Now for Dutch auctions (multi- quantity, competitive bidding), where you can buy multiple items from the same listing at a fixed price, instead of bidding. On some sites, the Buy It Now option remains available for Dutch auctions even after there are bids.
For fixed-price (FixedPriceItem) and Store Inventory listings (StoresFixedPrice), see currentPrice instead.
Only returned if an item was listed with Buy It Now.
