eBay Trading APIVersion 1371


This type defines the ProductDetails container that is returned in the GeteBayDetails response if the ProductDetails value is used in a DetailName field (or no DetailName fields are used).

The ProductDetails container shows the substitute text that can be used in place of an actual product identifier (e.g. EAN, ISBNs, UPC, or MPN) in case the product does not have a product identifier and/or the product identifier is not known by the seller.

ProductIdentifierUnavailableText ( string ) [0..1]
This field contains the actual text that should be passed into the relevant product identifier fields (e.g. ProductListingDetails.UPC in an AddItem call) when creating a listing. Some eBay categories require one or more Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), so either the actual GTIN or this substitute text must be passed into the relevant fields.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ProductIdentifierUnavailableText.
