Getting ItemCompatibilityList from multiple items?
Hi, we want to get the ItemCompatibilityList of multiple items. Is there any other way than calling every item individual with the GetSingleItem action? Unfotrunately GetMultipleItems does not return the Compatibility. Best regards, Tobias.
No is probably the best answer, but here are some alternatives that might work for your app depending on your approach:
http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/guides/ebayfeatures/Development/CompatibleParts-APISupport.html oddly, the Shopping API is not included on that page The Finding API responses are pretty useless: - they just echo keywords that you provide and are only active for certain keywords. - Searching Honda+air+bag gives compatibility:honda, Honda+Odyssey+air+bag gives compatibity:honda+odyssey, air+bag gives nothing. So at best it's a confirmation that the keywords match by compatibility, which is pretty much implied by the fact the item was returned in cases where compatibility node is returned. - You can search for multiple items numbers using Finding, but since compatibility checking is triggered by keywords, itemid searches won't return the data.
