FindItemsAdvanced return not all items

Hi. I'm not understandig: why FindItemsAdvanced returning not all items? Example: Motors -> Cars & Trucks -> Aston Martin -> Rapide ([link][1]) On site it category has 10 items, but api return only 8 ([link][2]). Who could explain me this strange behavior of this API?

Your call to findItemsAdvanced is not using the same search parameters as the eBay search and will therefore produce different results. For instance, the eBay search is using the keywords *Aston Martin Rapide*, and your call is using *aston martin*. This in itself is not the cause for the difference in results. The actual cause is that the eBay search is very broad as it's across the category Cars & Trucks (6001), where as your search is more focused and targets just the Rapide (180523) category. Since two listings, 172016502357 and 361446471414, were listed in the category Other (5358) they will only be found by the eBay search. This [findItemsAdvanced call]( https://sdk.intradesys.com/s/250cf8b51c773f3f8dc8b4be867a9a02) will be closer to the results of the eBay search.

Ok, i see. Thanks. But my second question is: I search "Aston Marting" through eBay Motors. It's returns me 158 items ([link][1]). But my API call returns me 168 items ([link][2] - second page from api request. First page - 100 results ([link][3])). How it could be?
