  Detailed Description

 WorldWide search is now suppored in  Finding API. You can use LocatedIn filter with value set to “WorldWide” to find items, regardless of their Location:

<itemFilter>
       <name>LocatedIn</name>
       <value>WorldWide</value>
</itemFilter>

  There are three new filter values for LocatedIn: “WorldWide”, “North America”, and “European”, apply to LocatedIn only. Note the casing for WorldWide and the space in North America.

The value "European" works only if the GLOBAL-ID value corresponds to a European eBay site (e.g., EBAY-FR, EBAY-DE, EBAY-GB, EBAY-AT, ...). For example, won’t work for eBay US (EBAY-US) or eBay Australia (EBAY-AU).

  Here are sample requests:
        Without filter (316 total entries)

 http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsAdvanced&SERVICE-VERSION=1.11.0&SECURITY-APPNAME=YOUR APPID&keywords=canon+60d+slr


     With filter (406 total entries, includes added locations)
The following request returned items from all the locations as the non-filtered request, and also item from Malaysia and United Kingdom.
