Why use GetOrders versus GetItemTransactions or GetSellerTransactions?

Summary

Use GetOrders instead of GetItemTransactions or GetSellerTransactions for order (sales) management



Detailed Description

GetOrders is the recommended call to use for order (sales) management. Use this call to retrieve all orders in which the authenticated caller is either the buyer or seller. For more details refer to http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/XML/docs/Reference/eBay/GetOrders.html.

If you typically use GetItemTransactions or GetSellerTransactions for order (sales) management, consider using GetOrders instead. The GetOrders call has been enhanced to retrieve single line item orders (traditionally known as 'transactions') and multiple line item orders (traditionally known as Combined Payment orders). Prior to 705, it was necessary to use GetItemTransactions or GetSellerTransactions.
