Fields

Name ( string ) [0..1]
A name in a name/value pair.

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 or GetItemRecommendations). 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 GetCategorySpecifics and GetItemRecommendations: 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.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Name.

Source ( see ItemSpecificSourceCodeType for possible values ) [0..1]
The origin of this Item Specific. Only returned if the source is not custom Item Specifics.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Source.

Value ( string ) [0..*]
A value associated with the name.

For the AddItem family of calls: If you specify multiple values for Item Specifics, eBay only stores the first one, unless GetCategorySpecifics or GetItemRecommendations 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 or GetItemRecommendations 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 GetCategorySpecifics and GetItemRecommendations: The most highly recommended values are returned first. For these calls, Value is only returned when recommended values are available.

For PlaceOffer: Required if the item being purchased includes Item Variations.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use Value.
