After retrieving a ProductID from the GetProductFinder call, how do I make an AddItem call and obtain prefilled item specifics?

Here is a sample AddItem call, made against the sandbox, with SiteID = 0.  Note that by using the ProductID (for a Casio EXILIM camera) you will obtain the following in the listing :

  • Stock photo
  • Item specifics including resolution, manufacturer part number, zoom, flash, memory and battery.
  • Detailed item information including product description, dimensions, and lens features.
