inventory API1.14.0


If used against an unpublished offer, this call will permanently delete that offer. In the case of a published offer (or live eBay listing), a successful call will either end the single-variation listing associated with the offer, or it will remove that product variation from the eBay listing and also automatically remove that product variation from the inventory item group. In the case of a multiple-variation listing, the deleteOffer will not remove the product variation from the listing if that variation has one or more sales. If that product variation has one or more sales, the seller can alternately just set the available quantity of that product variation to 0, so it is not available in the eBay search or View Item page, and then the seller can remove that product variation from the inventory item group at a later time.
