Why the eBay FindingService response: Invalid product ID value, but product with such EAN really exists?

[I also asked this question in StackOverflow, but have not got any answers. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35955452/ ] I try to search some product details by eBay API, I meet a problem. For some EAN, the product really exist in eBay' page, for example, a movie: http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Shawshank-Redemption-DVD-NEW-/281073136687?hash=item417143b42f:g:Kd0AAOSwq5lTq3wI [By the Way, I got the movie's ebay page by google "site: ebay.com 9325336105405"] When I use the eBay API to find the product (e.g. click: http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsByProduct&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0&SECURITY-APPNAME=Your_App_ID_Goes_Here&RESPONSE-DATA-FORMAT=XML&REST-PAYLOAD≷obalId=EBAY-AU∏uctId.@type=EAN∏uctId=9325336105405) I got such xml response: ` ` ` Failure ` ` ` ` ` ` 41 ` ` Marketplace ` ` Error ` ` Request ` ` Invalid product ID value. ` ` Search ` ` 9325336105405 ` ` ` ` ` ` 1.13.0 ` ` 2016-03-12T08:10:35.039Z ` ` ` And when I type the EAN in the seachbox of eBay website, eBay says: **This listing (9325336105405) has been removed, or this item is not available.** **Please check that you've entered the correct item number** **Listings that have ended 90 or more days ago will not be available for viewing.** I am sure this is a correct EAN, and this product have not been ended, It still has a button 'Buy it now'. Since the EAN starts with '932' meas that is a Australia product, so I try to search it on www.ebay.com.au, and get the same response. **Why the eBay API treat such EAN as invalid? How could I fetch the details of this EAN by eBay API?** Thanks a looooooot!!!
