eBay::API::XML::Call::GetItem

DESCRIPTION

SYNOPSIS

INHERITANCE

eBay::API::XML::Call::GetItem inherits from the eBay::API::XML::BaseCall class

Subroutines:

setIncludeCrossPromotion()

Specifies whether or not to include cross-promotion information for the item in the call response. <br><br> With a request version of 485 or higher, the default is false (do not include cross-promotion details). Set to true to retrieve cross-promotion information for the item. Cross-promotion information is returned in Item.CrossPromotion.PromotedItem.PromotionDetails. A promoted item will now contain multiple PromotionDetails containers. <br><br> With a request version lower than 485, the default is true (include cross-promotions). Set the value to false if you do not want to retrieve cross-promotion information. Cross-promotion information, PromotedPrice and PromotedPriceType, are returned in Item.CrossPromotion.PromotedItem. If a promoted item has multiple PromotedPriceType and PromotedPrice value pairs, only the last pair is returned.

  RequiredInput: No
#    Argument: 'xs:boolean'

setIncludeItemSpecifics()

If true, the response returns the ItemSpecifics node (if the listing has custom Item Specifics).<br> <br> Item Specifics are well-known aspects of items in a given category. For example, items in a washer and dryer category might have an aspect like Type=Top-Loading; whereas items in a jewelry category might have an aspect like Gemstone=Amber.<br> <br> (This does not cause the response to include ID-based attributes. To also retrieve ID-based attributes, pass DetailLevel in the request with the value ItemReturnAttributes or ReturnAll.)

  RequiredInput: No
