Fetch item purchase history

We're trying to grab the purchase history of items by itemId. We're not the seller and just want to display the data shown like in this example url:

 

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBidsLogin&item=200818758090

 

We know you can get the quantity sold with the shopping api using the GetSingleItem callname and details selector. But, where is the rest of the data? We've wasted 2 hours searching the docs for it and we are stuck.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi @mubakh_38,

You can not get the sales history of listing unless you are seller. If you want to get the sales history of listing, you need to make call with the seller specific user token.

Hi, 

       If you are looking for full item sale history,  you need to use GetItemTransactions API call from the Trading API.

http://developer.ebay.com/devzone/xml/docs/reference/ebay/GetItemTransactions.html

Even though it is a trading API call, you don't need to be the seller to get basic sales history data.     

 

 

Regards,
