How to get Custom Label value to track inventory 

Detailed Description

Sellers can use Custom Label (available in Turbo Lister, Selling Manager Pro, and File Exchange) to assign "descriptors" to identify their listing. The descriptor is mapped to the item's SKU (stock keeping units) property and can be retrieved in numerous API calls like :
      GetItem.Item.SKU
      GetItemTransactions.Item.SKU
      GetOrders.OrderArray.Order.TransactionArray.Transaction.Item.SKU
      GetSellerList.ItemArray.Item.SKU
      GetSellerTransactions.TransactionArray.Transaction.Item.SKU

The Custom Label replaces the following current fields in eBay seller tools:
     "Item Label" in Turbo Lister
     "Part Number" in Selling Manager Pro
     "Private ID" in File Exchange

 A seller can also define SKU in AddItem request for tracking their listings' complex flows of products and information as below:
  
   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
   <AddItemRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
     <Version>473</Version>
     <ErrorLanguage>en_US</ErrorLanguage>
     <WarningLevel>High</WarningLevel>
     <Item>

       <BuyItNowPrice>10.0</BuyItNowPrice>
