How to show unit price details using AddItem family of call in German site.

Use the unit type and unit quantity item specifics. The unit price will then be displayed to buyers on the search results pages and the item page. You should use the unit price display only with FixedPriceItem listing type and you won’t be able to display a unit price for auction-style listings.

From October, when you list your item using the fixed price format in certain categories, you’ll be able to:

• Enter the selling price, as normal, e.g. EUR 10
• Use the item specific for the relevant unit, e.g. kg
• Use the item specific for the number of units, e.g. 10

For more information on this please refer to the seller update page here: http://sellerupdate.ebay.co.uk/autumn2012/unit-prices

To list an item in ebay.de with unit price in the viewItem page, use <ItemSpecifics> container and include the unit type and quantity details using the <NameValueList> container as shown below:

<ItemSpecifics>
  ..
  <NameValueList>
    <Name>Anzahl der Einheiten</Name>
    <Value>10</Value>
  </NameValueList>
  <NameValueList>
    <Name>Maßeinheit</Name>
    <Value>kg</Value>
  </NameValueList>
  ..
</ItemSpecifics>

Below is a sample AddFixedPriceItem request that lists items in DE site with unit price details showing in the viewItem page.
