MinimumRemnantSet ( int ) [0..1]
This field indicates the minimum ticket quantity that must remain after a buyer purchases one or more (but not all) tickets in an event-based listing. This feature helps the seller avoid the scenario of being left with only one ticket in a multiple-quantity, fixed-priced event-based listing. In some cases, a solo seat to an event can be harder to sell, especially as the event date approaches.

Based on the value of MinimumRemnantSet and the listing's available quantity (Quantity-QuantitySold), eBay calculates the quantity of tickets that a buyer can purchase. For example, suppose a seller lists 5 tickets, and wants at least 2 tickets remaining for the final buyer to purchase. In this case, the seller would set MinimumRemnantSet to '2'. This means a buyer can purchase 1, 2, 3, or 5 tickets, but not 4 (because 4 would leave the seller with 1 ticket).

This field is currently only applicable for event ticket listings in the US and CA marketplaces, but may apply to other categories in the future. It is only returned if set by the seller in the listing.
