Finding Service API by UPC not working

Hi, I'm trying to use the Finding API to search for items with the following UPC: 029986515414 I'm using GET method, opeartion "findItemsByProduct" and have applied my app name (ShaulRac-TheOrigi-PRD-8bff6a2ad-b6c55082). As such, I have consutructed the following URL: http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsByProduct&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0&SECURITY-APPNAME=ShaulRac-TheOrigi-PRD-8bff6a2ad-b6c55082&RESPONSE-DATA-FORMAT=XML&REST-PAYLOAD&globalId=EBAY-IT&productId.@type=UPC&productId=029986515414 When calling to the API, it replies the following error: Failure 41 Marketplace Error Request Invalid product ID value. Search 029986515414 1.13.0 2016-10-15T18:07:39.422Z However, when searching for the product manually, just by typing the UPC in the search box, I'm able to find it. Also, I myself have listed the same product in my store - and am able to get this very exact UPC when downloading the product code for the product I'm selling (via file exchange). Hence, I'm expecting to find at least my product. Also, I think the URL I constructed is correct, before it works seamlessly for other UPCs, such as this Plasma TV: 846042005258 http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsByProduct&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0&SECURITY-APPNAME=ShaulRac-TheOrigi-PRD-8bff6a2ad-b6c55082&RESPONSE-DATA-FORMAT=XML&REST-PAYLOAD&globalId=EBAY-IT&productId.@type=UPC&productId=846042005258 Can you please have a look and explain to me whether I'm using the API incorrectly or whether it's broken?
