removeItem

POST
/shopping_cart/remove_item
Experimental Release This is an experimental method.

This method removes a specific item from the eBay member's cart. You specify the ID of the item in the cart (cartItemId) that you want to remove.

The response returns all the items in the eBay member's cart; items added to the cart while on ebay.com as well as items added to the cart using the Browse API. If you remove the last item in the cart, the response is HTTP 204.

The quantity and state of an item changes often. If the item becomes "unavailable" such as, when the listing has ended or the item is out of stock, the item will be returned in the unavailableCartItems container.

Note: The cartItemId is not the same as the item ID. The cartItemId is the identifier of a specific item in the cart and is generated when the item was added to the cart.
