Specifies the default site setting for whether parts compatibility information is required when listing items, and if so, how many compatibilities must be specified. If the value is "0," you are not required to specify compatibility information. A value greater than "0" indicates that listing with parts compatibity is mandatory and the listing must contain the specified number of compatibilities at a minimum.
Parts compatibility listings contain information to determine the assemblies with which a part is compatible. For example, an automotive part or accessory listed witih parts compatibility can be matched with vehicles (e.g., specific years, makes, and models) with which the part or accessory can be used.
This field applies only to listings in which compatibility is specified by application. Entering parts compatibility by application specifies the assemblies (e.g., a specific year, make, and model of car) to which the item applies. This can be done automatically by listing with a catalog product that supports parts compatibility, or manually, using Item.ItemCompatibilityList when listing or revising an item.
