NAME

eBay::API::XML::DataType::ItemType

DESCRIPTION

Contains the data defining one item. A seller populates an object of this type at listing time with the definition of a new item. A seller also uses an object of this type to re-list or revise an item. Calls that retrieve item data (such as the GetSellerList call) return an object of this type, filled with the item's data. Some fields are applicable both to eBay listings and Half.com listings. Some fields are only applicable to eBay listings, and others are only applicable to Half.com listings.

SYNOPSIS

INHERITANCE

eBay::API::XML::DataType::ItemType inherits from the eBay::API::XML::BaseDataType class

Subroutines:

setApplicationData()

Returns custom, application-specific data associated with the item. The data you specify is stored by eBay with the item for your own reference, but it is not used by eBay in any way. Use ApplicationData to store special information for yourself, such as a part number. For a SKU in an eBay.com listing, use the SKU element instead. To remove this value when revising or relisting an item, use DeletedField. ApplicationData is not applicable to Half.com. For Half.com listings, use SellerInventoryID instead.

setAttributeArray()

Used to specify the item condition in AddItem. Only applicable to Half.com (not eBay listings). You can revise this property for Half.com listings. For Half.com, AddItem does not use the same Attributes format as eBay's Item Specifics.<br> <br> Not returned in GetItem. See AttributeSetArray instead.

setAttributeSetArray()

Item Specifics (such as new or used condition) in a listing. Item Specifics (attributes) describe category-specific aspects or features of an item in a standardized way. Carries one or more instances of AttributeSet in a list. For ID-based attributes in general, an item will be associated with no more than two full attribute sets (one for the primary category and one for the secondary category). For some international sites, an item can specify additional site-wide attribute sets.<br> <br> Please note that AttributeSetArray does not support the new "custom Item Specifics" model. See the ItemSpecifics node instead.<br> <br> <b>For the AddItem family of calls:</b> Some categories (such as Event Tickets and US Real Estate) require Item Specifics. See the eBay Web Services Guide links below for information on working with Item Specifics. Use GetCategory2CS and GetAttributesCS to determine when attributes are required for a category. Also use attributes to specify the item condition and/or return policy.<br> <br> For a listing to be eligible for eBay Express, the item condition is required in most cases. Use GetCategoryFeatures to determine which categories are exempt from this requirement. See the eBay Web Services Guide links below for details.<br> <br> <b>For ReviseItem only:</b> When you revise a listing, if the listing has bids and ends within 12 hours, you cannot change or add attributes. If the listing has bids but ends in more than 12 hours, you cannot change existing attribute data, but you can add attributes that were not previously specified. The most reliable way to do this is to pass in the entire AttributeSetArray with all the attributes you want in the listing (not just the ones you want to change, because that usually causes the others to be removed). To delete all attributes when you revise or relist, specify Item.AttributeSetArray in DeletedField and don't pass AttributeSetArray in the request. If the original listing's attributes are no longer valid and you get errors when you try to revise the listing, you can try to pass in the entire AttributeSetArray again with corrections. If that doesn't work, you can end the item and relist it with a set of valid attributes.<br> <br> <b>For AddLiveAuctionItem and ReviseLiveAuctionItem only:</b> For AddLiveAuctionItem and ReviseLiveAuctionItem, specify a maximum of one AttributeSet for Item Specifics that are associated with SecondaryCategory (a US eBay site category), plus any number of additional AttributeSet properties for site-wide attributes that are applicable to the US eBay site.<br> <br> <b>For GetCategoryListings only:</b> For GetCategoryListings, AttributeSetArray can return the item condition (not other Item Specifics), if specified.<br> <br> <b>For GetSearchResults only:</b> GetSearchResults can return the item condition when the request either specifies IncludeCondition as true; or specifies a product finder search (and a detail level of ItemReturnAttributes or ReturnAll). If IncludeCondition was true, see the ItemSpecific node for a simpler view of the condition value. <br> <span class="tablenote"><b>Note:</b> AttributeSetArray only returns the condition attribute's ValueID. You would need to use GetAttributesCS to figure out the meaning of this ID. It's easier to just look at the ItemSpecific node.</span> <br> If SearchRequest or TicketFinder was used to perform a product finder search, the list of attributes is limited to Item Specifics that would be included in the summary search results on the Web site, if any. At this time, GetSearchResults only returns event ticket venue name, section, and row (if specified) for eBay US (site 0); and the mileage and year for eBay Motors vehicles (site 100 and international eBay Motors sites that support this feature). In other categories, no summary attributes are returned in search results (even when the item is listed with Item Specifics.) <br> <br> <b>For GetItemRecommendations only:</b> In GetItemRecommendations, if you use the Suggested Attributes engine, the engine interprets attributes you pass in as attributes that do NOT need recommendations (i.e., attributes that the seller has already filled in as desired). The engine only returns recommendations for attributes that you do not specify, and only for attributes associated with the primary category.<br> <br> For Half.com, this is only returned in GetItem. It is not applicable in AddItem and other requests.

setAutoPay()

If true, the seller requests immediate payment for the item. If false or not specified, immediate payment is not requested. (In responses, does not indicate whether the item is actually still a candidate for purchase via immediate payment.)<br> <br> Only applicable to items listed on PayPal-enabled sites in categories that support immediate payment (see AutoPayEnabled in GetCategories), when seller has a Premier or Business PayPal account (see PayPalAccountType in Getuser). If true, the seller must also accept PayPal as a payment method for the item (see Item.PaymentMethods).<br> <br> Not supported if ThirdPartyCheckout is true.<br> <br> See the eBay Web Services guide section on Immediate Payment for additional requirements and dependencies. Also see the section on working with the eBay Motors site for additional rules. Not applicable to Half.com.

setBuyItNowPrice()

For Chinese auction listings, Buy It Now allows a user to purchase the item at a fixed price and end the auction immediately. Use this field to add Buy It Now and specify the amount a buyer would need to bid to take advantage of the Buy It Now feature. <br><br> On the main eBay site, not applicable to fixed-price items (ListingType values StoresFixedPrice or FixedPriceItem), AdFormat listings, or Half.com listings. For fixed-price and Half.com listings, see StartPrice instead. See the eBay Web Services Guide for validation rules when revising US eBay Motors listings, including rules for lowering the Buy It Now price of a Motors listing. <br><br> Once a Chinese auction has bids (and the high bid exceeds the reserve price, if any), the listing is no longer eligible for Buy It Now (with some exceptions noted below). However, calls like GetItem and GetSearchResults still return the BuyItNowPrice that the seller originally set for the listing. You can use Item.SellingStatus.BidCount to determine whether an auction with Buy It Now has bids or not. With GetSearchResults, you can use the Item.SearchDetails.BuyItNowEnabled flag to determine whether the item can still be purchased using Buy It Now. With GetItem, you can use the Item.ListingDetails.BuyItNowAvailable flag to determine whether the item can still be purchased using Buy It Now. <br><br> On some sites, the Buy It Now price for a Chinese auction may remain available for certain categories even after a bid is placed. See the "Longer Lasting Buy It Now" link below for more details and the latest list of eBay US categories that support this behavior. The eBay Spain site supports this behavior for all categories. <br><br> For a listing to be eligible for Express, the max Buy It Now Price is USD 10,000.00 for the US. (Additional price limits may be imposed by the seller's PayPal account or the payment method used. Such limits cannot be determined via the eBay API and are not covered in eBay's API documentation, as they may vary for each user.) <br><br> To remove this value when revising or relisting an item, use DeletedField.

setBuyerRequirementDetails()

New Container for buyer requirements. The old container, BuyerRequirements, has been deprecated. All global MyeBay Buyer Requirements are over-ridden by the contents of this container. This means that buyer requirements set in MyeBay cannot be combined with buyer requirements included in this container. When this container is present in an AddItem call, all buyer requirements for the resulting listing are set by this container. Furthermore, individual buyer requirements cannot be modified or added when including this container in a ReviseItem call. The ReviseItem call needs to provide the entire set of buyer requirements to modify or add any of the requirements. Unless otherwise specified, most buyer requirements are only returned if the caller is the seller. Not applicable to Half.com.

setBuyerResponsibleForShipping()

Applicable for listings in vehicle categories on the US eBay Motors site and eBay Canada site. (No business effect if specified for other categories or sites, as the Web site will not display the information to buyers.) If true, the buyer is responsible for vehicle pickup or shipping. If false, specify vehicle shipping arrangements in the item description. Default is true. (The description can also include vehicle shipping arrangements when this value is true.) If the item has bids or ends within 12 hours, you cannot modify this flag. Do not specify ShippingDetails.ShippingServiceOptions for vehicle listings. <br><br> If true and the listing is on the US eBay Motors site, and you want the listing to be visible on the eBay Canada site, set Item.ShipToLocations to CA. If true and the listing is on the eBay Canada site , and you want your listing to be visible on the US eBay Motors site, set Item.ShipToLocations to US. Not applicable to Half.com.

setCategoryBasedAttributesPrefill()

Allows eBay to auto-fill some of a listing's Item Specifics (attribute) values based on the listing's category (or categories). Auto-filling attributes based on a category is not the same as using Pre-filled Item Information based on a catalog product (see ProductListingDetails). If true, also specify Item.CategoryMappingAllowed with a value of true. (Alternatively, you can auto-fill attributes on the client side by using mapping meta-data returned by GetAttributesCS.) See the eBay Web Services guide for more information. Ignored if the category does not support auto-filling attributes.<br> <br> If you also pass in attributes in AttributeSetArray, your values will override any auto-filled values for the same attributes. Once you have overridden the value of an auto-filled attribute for a given listing, eBay will not auto-fill it on subsequent ReviseItem requests (even if you remove the overridden value). <br> <br> Not applicable to Half.com.

setCategoryMappingAllowed()

Controls how eBay handles cases in which an ID specified in PrimaryCategory and/or SecondaryCategory no longer exists in the current category structure: If you pass a value of true in CategoryMappingAllowed, eBay will look up the current ID that is mapped to the same category and use the new ID for the listing (if any). The new ID will be returned in the response as CategoryID (for the primary category) or Category2ID (for the secondary category). If CategoryMappingAllowed is not set or contains a value of "false" (the default), an error will be returned if a selected category ID no longer exists. Not applicable to Half.com.

setCharity()

Identifies a Giving Works listing and the benefiting nonprofit charity organization selected by the charity seller, if any. If specified, the seller must also accept PayPal as a payment method for the item (see Item.PaymentMethods). <br> <br>Giving Works listings are not eligible for some eBay Express sites. (If ExpressListing is false in GetItem or VerifyAddItem and you specified Charity, check whether ExpressItemRequirements returns NoCharity as a cause.) <br><br> When you revise an item, you can add a charity to a non-charity listing, but you cannot remove or change the charity designation. The rules for adding a charity to a listing depend on the listing type. For an auction listing, you can revise an item to add a charity if there are more than 12 hours left for the listing (whether or not the item has bids). For a fixed-price listing, you can revise an item to add a charity if there are more than 12 hours left for the listing, and the item has not been sold. For a Store Inventory listing, you can revise an item to add a charity if the item has not been sold. You cannot revise listings to add charity for Ad Format listings. <br><br> When you relist an item, use DeletedField to remove charity information. <br><br> Not applicable to Half.com.

setDescription()

Description of the item. In listing requests, you can submit your description using CDATA if you want to use HTML or XML-reserved characters in the description.

(See "About the Pre- filled Item Information API." in the eBay Web Services Guide.) Even if your application does not support listings items with Pre-filled Item Information, you should be aware that this also means GetItem, GetSellerList, and GetBidderList may return some items with empty Description fields. <br><br> If you embed pictures in the description (by using IMG tags) instead of using PictureURL, but you want a camera icon to appear in search and listing pages, specify the following null-image URL in PictureURL: http://pics.ebay.com/aw/pics/dot_clear.gif. See "Including Pictures in an Item Listing" in the eBay Web Services Guide. <br><br> For eBay Live Auctions listings, JavaScript is not allowed. <br><br> Not applicable to Half.com.

setGroupCategoryID()

GroupCategoryID is returned if there is a value of BestMatchCategoryGroup in the Order field for the GetSearchResults call. However, the results depend on the items and groups requested. The Best Match algorithm will try to evenly fit the items and return groups of 'Best Matching' Categories. A 'category group' can be a parent category that contains the best-matching items from several of its subcategories. Within each category group, items will be also sorted by best match. The only condition when you may not get a GroupCategoryID returned at all is when the request is for one group and there is more than one category that has matching items. Very rarely, the same item will appear once in the group for its primary category and once in another group for its secondary category, in the same result set. Also very occasionally, a Store Inventory Item can appear in the results before a regular listing.

setLimitedWarrantyEligible()

Applicable to US eBay Motors vehicle listings only. If false, the vehicle will not be considered for a limited warranty by eBay. If your application lists Motors vehicles, you must provide the seller with an opportunity to indicate whether the vehicle has not been modified and is not a special type (e.g., Corvette ZR1). If LimitedWarrantyEligible is passed in, it means the application has presented the seller with checkboxes to indicate this information. If true, the seller has verified that the vehicle has not been modified and is not a special type. If false, the seller has verified that vehicle has been modified or it is a special type. Passing a value of true does not guarantee that eBay will offer a limited warranty. It only makes the listing eligible for consideration. See the eBay Web Services Guide for more information about Motors vehicle listings. Not applicable to Half.com.

setListingDuration()

Describes the number of days the seller wants the listing to be active (available for bidding/buying). The duration specifies the seller's initial intent at listing time. The end time for a listing is calculated by adding the duration to the item's start time. If the listing ends early, the value of the listing duration does not change. When a listing's duration is changed, any related fees (e.g., 10-day fee) may be debited or credited (as applicable).<br> <br> The valid choice of values depends on the listing format (see Item.ListingType). For a list of valid values, call GetCategoryFeatures with DetailLevel set to ReturnAll and look for ListingDurations information. <br> <br> Also required for Half.com (but only specify GTC).<br> <br> When you revise a listing, the duration cannot be reduced if it will result in ending the listing within 24 hours of the current date-time. You are only allowed to increase the duration of the listing if fewer than 2 hours have passed since you initially listed the item and the listing has no bids. You can decrease the value of this field only if the listing has no bids (or no items have sold) and the listing does not end within 12 hours.

setListingType()

The format of the listing the seller wants to use, such as Chinese auction or fixed price.<br> <br> Optional for eBay.com listings (defaults to Chinese) in AddItem and VerifyAddItem. On the US, Germany, and UK sites, eligible items listed in the fixed price, Store Inventory, or (for the US) in the Chinese auction format with Buy It Now are also included on eBay Express. Express Germany and UK also support an Express format for listing only on Express.<br> <br> Do not specify ListingType for eBay.com listings in ReviseItem. (You can't modify the listing type of an active eBay listing.<br> <br> Required for Half.com listings (and the value must be Half) in AddItem, VerifyAddItem, and ReviseItem. If you don't specify Half when revising Half.com listings, ReviseItem won't use the correct logic and you may get strange errors (or unwanted side effects in the listing, even if no errors are returned).

setPayPalEmailAddress()

Valid PayPal email address for the PayPal account that the seller will use if they offer PayPal as a payment method for the listing. eBay uses this to identify the correct PayPal account when the buyer pays via PayPal during the checkout process. (As a seller can have more than one PayPal account, you cannot necessarily rely on PayPal account data returned from GetUser for details about the account associated with the PayPal email address that the seller specifies.)<br> <br> Required if seller has chosen PayPal as a payment method (PaymentMethods) for the listing.<br> <br> For a listing to be eligible for Express US, the seller needs to use an email address that is in good standing and that is associated with a PayPal Premier or PayPal business account that is set to ship to unconfirmed addresses. For Express Germany, PayPalEmailAddress must be specified for Express format listings, but it is optional for other formats (as long as an eligible default PayPal account is specified in the seller's Express preferences). If the specified PayPal account becomes ineligible for eBay Express payments (because the seller blocked unconfirmed addresses or some other change occurred), the items associated with that account may become ineligible for Express and may no longer appear on Express. <p></p> <span class="tablenote"><b>Note:</b> At the end of April 2008, UK and Germany eBay Express will be shutdown. No users will be eligible to list on these sites. All users previously registered on UK and Germany Express will have their registered status revoked. Any Express only items listed on these sites will be ended and credited the full insertion fee to their sellers. Please refer to the respective Express sites for more information. </span> <p></p> See eBay Express information in the eBay Web Services Guide for more information.<br> <br> For digital listings, the seller needs to use an email address that is associated with a PayPal Premier or PayPal business account. <br> <br> <b>For ReviseItem and RelistItem only:</b> To remove this value when you revise or relist an item, use DeletedField. When you revise a listing, if the listing has bids (or items have been sold) or it ends within 12 hours, you can add PayPalEmailAddress, but you cannot remove it.<br> <br> Not applicable to eBay Motors listings.

setPaymentMethods()

Identifies the payment method (such as credit card or PayPal) the seller will accept for the buyer to pay for the purchase of the item. <br><br> If you specify multiple PaymentMethods fields, the repeating fields must be contiguous. For example, you can specify PayPalEmailAddress after a list of repeating PaymentMethods fields, but not between them:<br> <br> &lt;PaymentMethods&gt;AmEx&lt;/PaymentMethods&gt;<br> &lt;PaymentMethods&gt;PersonalCheck&lt;/PaymentMethods&gt;<br> &lt;PaymentMethods&gt;PayPal&lt;/PaymentMethods&gt;<br> &lt;PayPalEmailAddress&gt;mypaypalemail@ebay.com&lt;/PayPalEmailAddress&gt;<br><br> In general, if you separate repeating instances of a field, the results will be unpredictable. This rule applies to all repeating fields (maxOccurs="unbounded" or greater than 1) in the schema.

When you revise or relist an item and you specify a payment method that is invalid for the target site, eBay ignores the invalid payment method, applies the other valid changes, and returns a warning to indicate that the invalid payment method was ignored. If multiple payment methods were invalid, the warning indicates that they were all ignored. If you modify the listing so that it includes no valid payment methods, an error is returned. This situation could occur when the seller removes all valid payment methods or when all the payment methods specified for the item are no longer valid on the target site.<br> <br><b>For GetProducts only:</b> Only PayPal is returned in product search results.

setPrimaryCategory()

Category ID for the first (or only) category in which the item is listed (or will be listed, if the item is new). A number of listing features have dependencies on the primary category. We have pointed out a few of the notable dependencies below. See the descriptions of the fields you are using to determine whether the feature you're supporting depends on the listing's primary category. <br> <br> <b>For the AddItem family of calls:</b> Use calls like GetCategories and GetCategoryFeatures to determine valid values for the site on which you are listing (see the eBay Web Services Guide for information on working with categories). Also see Item.CategoryMappingAllowed and Item.CategoryBasedAttributesPrefill.<br> <br> Most eBay.com categories are also eligible for eBay Express. Categories not covered by PayPal Buyer Protection are excluded. Also, certain categories that do not support item condition may be excluded (use GetCategoryFeatures to determine eligible categories). See "eBay Express" in the eBay Web Services Guide.<br> <br> There are a number of categories on some eBay sites that always add the Gallery feature (for free) when you include a picture in the listing and you don't specify the Gallery feature yourself. See GalleryType for information about fees that could be charged if you change the category in these cases. <br> <br> Not applicable to Half.com.<br> <br> <b>For ReviseItem only:</b> When revising a listing, you can change the primary category only if an item has no bids (or no items have sold) and the listing does not end within 12 hours. <br> <br>If you change the listing category, any Item Specifics (attributes) that were previously specified may be dropped from the listing if they aren't valid for the new category. See Item.AttributeSetArray. For the eBay US site, we suggest that you avoid including a category ID when you use ExternalProductID. See the KB article listed below for details.<br> <br> You cannot change the meta-categories for vehicles (i.e., you cannot change a truck to a motorcycle), but you can change the leaf category (e.g., change one motorcycle subcategory to another motorcycle subcategory). See the eBay Web Services Guide for additional rules. International sites (such as the eBay Germany site) have similar rules for revising vehicle categories. <br> <br> <b>For AddLiveAuctionItem only:</b> For eBay Live Auctions (e.g., in AddLiveAuctionItem), this is the eBay Live Auctions site category in which to list the item. This can be different from the category that is associated with the seller's catalog. See Specifying eBay Live Auctions Categories in the eBay Web Services guide.<br> <br> <b>For GetItemRecommendations only:</b> For GetItemRecommendations, use this to control the category that will be searched for recommendations. Specify the category in which the item will be listed. See the eBay Web Services guide for differences in validation rules depending on whether you are using the Listing Analyzer engine, Product Pricing engine, or Suggested Attributes engine.<br> <br> <b>For GetProducts:</b> Use GetCategories if you need to determine the name of the category.

setProductListingDetails()

Specifies stock product information to include in a listing. Only applicable when listing items with Pre-filled Item Information. If the item's primary and secondary category are both catalog-enabled, the product listing details must be applicable to the primary category. If only one category is catalog- enabled, the product listing details must be applicable to the catalog-enabled category. Either Item.ExternalProductID or Item.ProductListingDetails can be specified in an AddItem request, but not both. See the eBay Web Services Guide for information on listing with Pre-filled Item Information.<br> <br> <b>For ReviseItem and RelistItem only:</b> If a listing includes Pre-filled Item Information and you change a category, the rules for continuing to include Pre-filled Item Information depend on whether or not the new category is mapped to a characteristic set associated with the same product ID. When you revise a listing, if it has bids or it ends within 12 hours, you cannot change the product ID and you cannot remove existing product data. However, you can change or add preferences such as IncludeStockPhotoURL, UseStockPhotoURLAsGallery, and IncludePrefilledItemInformation. To delete all catalog data when you revise or relist an item, specify Item.ProductListingDetails in DeletedField and don't pass ProductListingDetails in the request.<br> <br> <b>For GetItemRecommendations only:</b> For GetItemRecommendations, see the eBay Web Services guide for validation rule differences when using the Product Pricing engine.<br><br> Not applicable to Half.com.

setProxyItem()

Some listings on the eBay platform originate from eBay affiliates. Depending on the relationship the affiliate has with eBay, there are times when the affiliate retains ownership of the listing. When this occurs the representation of the listing on eBay is considered a proxy item. Proxy items can only be edited using API requests from the applications that originally listed them.

setQuantity()

For AddItem and related calls, this is the number of items in the listing. For new listings being defined, this is the initial number of items the seller offers for sale. Even during a Dutch auction, where one of several items can be purchased during the auction, this number does not change. Sellers need to meet certain feedback requirements to specify a quantity greater than 1. <br><br> When you revise a listing, you can add or change this value only if the listing has no bids (or no items have sold) and it does not end within 12 hours. For auction items, a change in the auction's quantity could result in a change in the auction type. For example, if the quantity is changed from 1 (a Chinese auction) to 2, the auction is now a Dutch auction. This may impose new requirements and fees on the seller. <br><br> For GetSellerEvents calls, Quantity is returned only for listings where item quantity is greater than 1. <br><br> For SetCart input, this is only required if the parent container is submitted. <br><br> Also applicable to Half.com (valid range 1 to 1000). You can revise this field for Half.com listings.

setReservePrice()

The lowest price at which the seller is willing to sell the item. (StartPrice must be lower than ReservePrice.) Not all categories support reserve prices. See GetCategories and "Determining Whether a Category Supports Reserve Prices" in the eBay Web Services guide. In calls that retrieve item data, ReservePrice only has a non-zero value for listings with a reserve price and where the user requesting the item data is also the item's seller. Not applicable to fixed- price items or ad format listings.<br> <br> You can remove the reserve price of a US eBay Motors listing if the category allows it, the current reserve price has not been met, and the reserve price is at least $2.00 more than the current high bid. In this case, if the item has bids, the reserve price is set to $1.00 over the current high bid. The next bid meets the reserve and wins. See the Fees Overview on the eBay Web site for information about fee credits that may be available when the reserve price is removed for a Motors listing. See the eBay Web Services guide for validation rules when revising US Motors listings.<br><br> For AddLiveAuctionItem and ReviseLiveAuctionItem, the seller needs to make sure they specify the amount in the currency selected for the live auction event. When you revise a Live Auction item, you can lower an existing reserve price, but you cannot add a reserve price or remove an existing reserve price if the item has absentee bids or ends in less than 12 hours.<br><br> Not applicable to Half.com. This field is ignored when Item.ListingType=Express.

This element is a SKU (stock-keeping unit) defined by a seller. The seller can use a SKU to identify one item or use the same SKU for multiple items. Preferable to ApplicationData for SKUs and inventory tracking. Different sellers can use the same SKUs. This element can be used by sellers to track complex flows of products and information. This element preserves a SKU, enabling a seller to obtain it before and after a transaction is created. To remove a SKU when you revise or relist an item, use DeletedField.

setSecondaryCategory()

ID for second category in which the item is listed (also see Item.PrimaryCategory). <br> <br> <b>For the AddItem family of calls:</b> Listing an item in a second category is optional. Also see Item.CategoryMappingAllowed and Item.CategoryBasedAttributesPrefill. <br> <br> Most eBay.com categories are also eligible for eBay Express. Categories not covered by PayPal Buyer Protection are excluded. Also, certain categories that do not support item condition may be excluded.<br> <br> Not applicable to Half.com. <br> <br> You cannot list US eBay Motors vehicles in two categories. However, you can list Parts & Accessories in two categories. The Final Value Fee is based on the primary category in which the item is listed. Furthermore, you can list the same item in an eBay Motors Parts & Accessories category and in an eligible eBay category, as long as the primary category is associated with the site on which you are listing. That is, the two categories can be a mix of Motors Parts & Accessories and eBay site categories. (Real Estate, Mature Audience (adult), and Business & Industrial categories are not eligible for listing in two categories in this manner.) For example, if you list on Motors, the primary category could be 6750 (eBay Motors > Parts & Accessories > Apparel & Merchandise > Motorcycle > Jackets & Leathers), and the secondary category could be 57988 (eBay > Clothing, Shoes > Accessories > Men's Clothing > Outerwear). If you list on the main eBay site, the primary category could be 57988 and the secondary category could be 6750. <br> <br> To remove this value when relisting an item, use DeletedField. <br><br> <b>For ReviseItem only:</b> When revising a listing, you can add, remove, or change the secondary category only if the listing has no bids (or no items have sold) and it does not end within 12 hours. If you change the secondary category, any corresponding Item Specifics (attributes) that were previously specified may be dropped from the listing if they aren't valid for the category. See Item.AttributeSetArray.<br> <br> When you revise an item, you can change the secondary category from a Motors Parts & Accessories category to an eBay category or vice versa if the listing has no bids (or no items have sold) and it does not end within 12 hours. <br> <br> <b>For AddLiveAuctionItem only:</b> For eBay Live Auctions (e.g., AddLiveAuctionItem), this is the eBay US site category in which to list the item. (This can be any eBay US category except Motors or Real Estate categories.) Note that eBay Live Auctions does not charge a fee to specify an eBay category (i.e., no List in Two Category fees). See Specifying eBay Live Auctions Categories in the eBay Web Services guide. In AddLiveAuctionItem, you need to specify SecondaryCategory if you are including Item Specifics (AttributeSetArray). <br> <br> <b>For ReviseLiveAuctionItem only:</b> For eBay Live Auctions, you can add SecondaryCategory when you revise the lot item, but you cannot change or remove an existing secondary category if the item has absentee bids or it ends in less than 12 hours.<br> <br> <b>For GetItemRecommendations only:</b> For GetItemRecommendations, use this to control the category that will be searched for recommendations.

setShippingDetails()

The shipping-related details for an item or transaction, including flat and calculated shipping costs and shipping insurance costs.<br> <br> New users who list their first items in selected categories on the US site must specify at least one domestic shipping service. This applies to a category if GetCategoryFeatures returns true for Category.ShippingTermsRequired. <br> <br> For multi-quantity Store Inventory Format listings and for multi-quantity Fixed Price listings, a seller can revise all shipping details of the listing (except for sales tax and for shipping type of Freight) for all unsold items. This applies to both domestic and international shipping. Checkout is not affected for those who bought items prior to the seller's shipping changes--the shipping details that were in effect at the time of purchase are used for that buyer at the time of checkout. <br> <br> For a listing to be eligible for eBay Express, shipping details are required (to support the eBay Express shopping cart). For flat shipping, this means the shipping service and cost are required. For calculated shipping, it means all of the usual parameters (weight, originating postal code, etc.) are required. See the the eBay Web Services Guide links below for more information. In GetSearchResultsExpress, always returned when ItemArray.Item is returned.<br> <br> This container is returned by GetCart or SetCart only when a valid postal code is provided for the country (see SetCart.ShippingAddress) and there is at least one item in the shopping cart for which calculated shipping is offered.<br> <br> Shipping details are not applicable to Real Estate listings and Half.com.

setSite()

The name of the site on which the item is listed. The listing site affects the business logic and validation rules that are applied to the request, which in turn affect the values that are returned in the response, as well as values that appear on the eBay Web site. For example, the listing site can affect the validation of Category in listing requests, international business seller requirements, the values of converted (localized) prices in responses, the item-related time stamps that are displayed on the eBay Web site, the visibility of the item in some types of searches (e.g., GetCategoryListings), and other information. In some cases (such as with listings on eBay Express), the rules are determined by a combination of the site, the user's registration address, and other information. You cannot change the site when you revise a listing.<br> <br> When you specify Item.Site in AddItem, it must be consistent with the numeric site ID that you specify in the request URL (for the SOAP API) or the X-EBAY- API-SITEID header (for the XML API). Not applicable to Half.com. For eBay Live Auctions, pass a value of US.

setStartPrice()

The original price of the item at listing or re-listing time. If this value changes when the item is revised, the new value becomes the original price. <br><br> For auction-type listings, competitive bidding starts at this value. Once at least one bid has been placed, StartPrice remains the same but CurrentPrice is incremented to the amount of each succeeding bid. If ReservePrice is also specified, the value of StartPrice must be lower than the value of ReservePrice. <br><br> For fixed-price listings (FixedPriceItem), Store Inventory (StoresFixedPrice) listings, and Express format listings, this is the constant price at which a buyer may purchase the item. <br><br> For a listing to be eligible for Express, the max start price is USD 10,000.00 for the US, EUR 5000 for Germany, and GBP 5500 for the UK. (Additional price limits may be imposed by the seller's PayPal account or the payment method used. Such limits cannot be determined via the eBay API and are not covered in eBay's API documentation, as they may vary for each user.)<br> <br> Also applicable to Half.com (valid range 0.75 to 9999.99). You can revise this field for Half.com listings. <br> For AddLiveAuctionItem and ReviseLiveAuctionItem, this is the amount at which absentee Internet bidding for the item begins. Max length was 16 at the time this call was initially developed. Must be greater than zero. The seller needs to make sure they specify the amount in the currency selected for the live auction event. When you revise a Live Auction item, you can change the start price.

setThirdPartyCheckout()

Whether checkout for this is to be handled by a Third-Party Checkout application. Only for authorized Third-Party Checkout applications. See "Third-Party Checkout" in the main documentation.<br> <br> If you are creating a listing, then for a listing to be eligible to appear on eBay Express, you also need to agree to use a Platform Notification (or transaction calls) instead of Third-Party Checkout to process Express sales. To do this, specify ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration with a value of true.<br> IMPORTANT: If you are not authorized to support Third Party Checkout and your application is not the original listing application, never specify ThirdPartyCheckout or ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration in your request (even if you revise a listing that already includes these flags). Otherwise, the listing may be dropped from Express or you may get unexpected results.<br> <br> To determine whether an item was listed on Express, call GetItem and check the value of Item.ListingDetails.ExpressListing. To determine whether an item sold on Express, use a transaction call like GetItemTransactions (or the Checkout notification), and check the value of TransactionPlatform.<br> <br> The counterpart in the GetItem family of calls is Item.ShippingDetails.ThirdPartyCheckout. <br> <br> Not applicable to Half.com.

Otherwise, the listing may be dropped from Express or you may get unexpected results.<br> <br> A Third-Party Checkout provider uses this flag in two ways:<br> <br> 1) Set this flag to true to specify that you consent to use the Checkout notification (or calls like GetSellerTransactions and GetItemTransactions) to obtain data about eBay Express sales from the item, and to confirm that buyers will use the Express shopping cart for checkout processing without being redirected to your Third-Party Checkout site. If ThirdPartyCheckout is true, the ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration field must also be true if you want an eligible listing to be included on eBay Express (and the Third Party Checkout checkout flow will be then be ignored for Express purchases). See the eBay Web Services Guide.<br> <br> In other words, assuming the seller and item meet all other eligibility requirements for Express, the seller opts into Express, and the seller (optionally) subscribes to the Checkout notification:<br> - If ThirdPartyCheckout == true and ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration == true, the item will be listed on Express and Checkout notifications will be sent.<br> - If ThirdPartyCheckout == true and ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration == omitted or false, the item will be disqualified for Express and no Checkout notification will be sent.<br> - If ThirdPartyCheckout == omitted or false, and ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration == true, the item will be listed on Express and Checkout notifications will be sent.<br> - If ThirdPartyCheckout == omitted or false, and ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration == omitted or false, the item will be listed on Express but no Checkout notifications will be sent.<br> <br> 2) If you subscribe to the Checkout notification, set this flag to true to enable Checkout notifications for a particular listing. These notifications can be sent for any transaction created from the listing, regardless of whether the listing is included on Express and regardless of the value of ThirdPartyCheckout. Checkout notifications are not sent if ThirdPartyCheckoutIntegration is false.<br> <br> Returned only if true for a listing.<br> <br> Not applicable to Half.com.<br> <br> To determine whether an item was listed on Express, call GetItem and check the value of Item.ListingDetails.ExpressListing. To determine whether an item sold on Express, use a transaction call like GetItemTransactions (or the Checkout notification), and check the value of TransactionPlatform.

setTitle()

Name of the item as it appears in the listing or search results. Required for most items. Optional if you list in Books, Music, Movies, or Video Games categories and you use Pre-filled Item Information (as the title can be pre-filled based on the catalog product title). That is, optional if you specify Item.ExternalProductID or Item.ProductListingDetails.<br> <br> You cannot use HTML or JavaScript in the Title. (HTML characters will be interpreted literally as plain text.)<br> <br> For AddItem, not applicable to Half.com. For GetOrders, not returned from eBay.com, but a title from the Half.com catalog is returned from Half.com instead.<br> <br> You can add or change the value of this tag only if an item has no bids (or no items have sold) and the listing does not end for 12 hours. <br> <br> In GetSearchResultsExpress, always returned when ItemArray.Item is returned.<br> <br> In GetItemRecommendations, more keywords in the title usually results in more relevant recommendations.

setUUID()

Universally unique constraint tag. Use UUID to ensure that you only list a particular item once, particularly if you are listing many items at once. If you add an item and do not get a response, resend the request with the same UUID. If the item was successfully listed the first time, you will receive an error message for trying to use a UUID that you have already used. The error will also include the item ID for the duplicated item and a boolean value indicating whether the duplicate UUID was sent by the same application. <br><br> We recommend you use Item.UUID with calls that add item objects (for example, AddItem, AddLiveAuctionItem, and RelistItem). For calls that modify an existing item, such as ReviseItem, use InvocationID instead. <br><br> The UUID can only contain digits from 0-9 and letters from A-F and must be 32 characters long. The UUID value must be unique across all item listings on all sites. <br><br> Also applicable as input to AddItem and related calls when you list items to Half.com.

Indicates whether the seller's tax table is to be used when applying and calculating taxes. If true, a tax table must exist for the seller, and the following tags should not be used: SalesTaxState, SalesTaxPercent, ShippingIncludedInTax.<br> <br> If the seller wants to charge sales tax for eBay Express sales, the seller needs to create a tax table on eBay and use it for their listings. As eBay Express payments are handled via a shopping cart, you will not be able to calculate and add sales tax during your own checkout flow. <br><br> Not applicable to Half.com.
