FindItemsIneBayStoresRequest ( BaseFindingServiceRequest )
Use findItemsIneBayStores to find items listed in eBay stores. Specify storeName in the request to retrieve all listings within a single store. You can combine storeName with keywords to find specific items, or use keywords without storeName to search for items in all eBay stores.
Search results can be filtered by item details or aspects and sorted by a variety of criteria.
Call that uses FindItemsIneBayStoresRequest:
By issuing a series of find queries, you can continually refine the items returned in your responses. Do this by repeating a query using the aspect values returned in one response as the input values to your next query.
For example, the aspectHistogramContainer in a response on Men's Shoes could contain an aspect of Size, along with "aspect values" for the different sizes currently available in Men's Shoes. By populating aspectFilter fields with the values returned in an aspectHistogramContainer, you can refine the item results returned by your new query.
If a specified category ID doesn't match an existing category for the site, eBay returns an invalid-category error message. To determine valid categories, use the Trading API GetCategories call.
Up to three (3) categories can be specified.
Category searches are not supported on the eBay Italy site (global ID EBAY-IT) at this time.
You can incorporate wildcards in a multi-word search. For example, "ap*%20ip*" returns results for "apple ipod" among other matches. The words "and" and "or" are treated like any other word (and not their logical connotation). Only use "and", "or", or "the" if you are searching for listings containing those specific words.
You must specify keywords when you are searching across all eBay stores. That is, keywords is required if storeName is not specified in the request.
If you don't specify this field, eBay returns a default set of item fields. Use outputSelector to include more information in the response. The additional data is grouped into discrete nodes. You can specify multiple nodes by including this field multiple times, as needed, in the request.
If you specify this field, the additional fields returned can affect the call's response time (performance), including in the case with feedback data.
Note: Store names are case sensitive. Also, if the store name contains an ampersand (&), you must use the & character entity (& amp;) in its place. If you do not specify storeName in the request, the search is across all eBay stores. When searching across all stores, you must specify keywords.
The results can be filtered by item listing details or aspects.
