Hi @tony.developersupport, We certainly appreciate the fact that this is getting attention. However, it's been 9 months since the last response and still no indication of progress or expectation. "We know it's a problem" just isn't good enough at this point. I've personally sent emails to support and have even attempted to get an account executive. Nothing. Is this scheduled to be fixed this quarter? Next quarter? This year? When did the problem start? Is there a workaround?

To all on this thread: I have COMPLETELY given up on eBay's affiliate program. They refuse to fix things they they themselves break and the response time is completely abysmal (see the date this thread was started). I swear they have reduced their affiliate API "development" to one dude in a basement somewhere. Whatever. I have been switching everything over to Amazon and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.

Has anyone heard anything about this? I can't even use the findItemsAdvanced API because I don't know what the aspect values are to filter on!

I'll add that using getHistograms does not work either.

Ok eBay. Look at the date of the last reply for this thread. JUNE! REALLY?! This feature has worked all along and by the looks of it, you folks are just not fixing it? Is this not a necessary thing in your API? Are all 2 of you in the API group so swamped with "other stuff"? You guys HAVE to be losing affiliates doing stuff like this. Please! Can we get an update on this? Remember.... JUNE was the last reply!!
