This complex type is used by each Product container that is returned in the response of the FindProducts call. Each Product container consists of information about an eBay catalog product.

Applications can include this URL as a link in product search results, so that end users can view additional descriptive details about the product.
true, there is a stock photo associated with the catalog product, and the URL to this image file is shown in the StockPhotoURL field. If this field is returned as
false, there is no stock photo associated with the catalog product.
Sellers should be aware that if no stock photo exists for a catalog product, the seller must add at least one of their own photos when creating a listing (based on that catalog product), as all eBay listings must have at least one image.
An application incorporating a graphical user interface can use this flag to determine when to hide customized stock photo widgets.
This field is always returned in each Product container.
This field is only returned if a catalog product is associated with one or more category-related domains, and if eBay has this data available.
This field is no longer applicable since the FindProducts call no longer retrieves any data on active listings associated with the retrieved catalog products.
Scanning Item Specific name-value pairs for catalog products in the response can be useful if the user would like to expand the query string to return more precise results. For example, if a user specified 'iPhone 8' as the query string in the call request, but after seeing too many catalog products of phones in different colors, and with different storage capacities in the response, the user could run another call, but expand the query string to 'iphone 8 256GB Gray'. In this case, the user would only see iPhone 8s that are gray and have 256 GB of storage capacity.
Important: Most eBay catalog products have at least one to a few Item Specifics defined, but it is possible that some retrieved catalog products will not have any Item Specifics defined.
