Enumeration Values

Value Description
CustomCode Reserved for future use.
Instance This enumeration value indicates that the Item Specific in the corresponding NameRecommendation.Name field is an 'instance aspect', which is an Item Specific whose value will vary based on a particular instance of the product. When creating a listing, the seller should pass in the name-value pair for this Item Specific through the Item.ItemSpecifics.NameValueList container of an AddItem call.
Product This enumeration value indicates that the Item Specific in the corresponding NameRecommendation.Name field is defined/derived from an eBay catalog product. 'Product' Item Specifics are also referred to as Product Aspects in Web flows and other APIs. Generally, catalog product-based Item Specifics should not be modified if the seller created/revise/relisted the item based on an eBay catalog product.
