FindingService API returns false info

I stumbled upon several problems with the API: [returnsAccepted] only says true or false. it's no enough. I want to know exact return period, and who pays the shipping cost, and if there's restocking fee. how can I get that info? [buyItNowAvailable] always says "false" for all lisiting, even though this option is indeed availble. why? what's the way to identify a buy it now listing? any listing that is not "auction" type? I found a lisiting which says *topRatedSeller* is false, but on the item page, the seller is indeed a top rated seller. how is it possible?

Hi daviga_66, For [returnsAccepted], Finding API returns only general information, for the detail information, you can refer to GetSingleItem (the traditional Shopping API) https://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/shopping/docs/CallRef/GetSingleItem.html or Get Item (Browse API under the new Buy API) https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/rest/api-ref/browse/item-item_id__get.html For[buyItNowAvailable], searchResult.item.listingInfo.buyItNowAvailable Applies only to auction listings that were listed with a Buy It Now price. Buy It Now lets a user purchase the item at a fixed price, effectively ending the auction. On most sites, the Buy It Now option is removed (and this value returns false) once a valid bid is made on the associated item (a valid bid could be a bid above the reserve price). buyItNowAvailable will return "false" if the listing type is anything but "AuctionWithBIN". Please ignore buyItNowAvailable for fixed-price listings. I get the information below in the response to https://api.ebay.com/buy/browse/v1/item/v1|262968320013|0 "buyingOptions": [ "FIXED_PRICE" ], please refer to the document https://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/finding/CallRef/findItemsByProduct.html#Response.searchResult.item.listingInfo.buyItNowAvailable "topRatedSeller is false", can you please provide a correct request without the incorrect characters? I would appreciate if you could attach it as an attachment if the incorrect characthers are generated automatically. Best Regards,

I already attached the request, and explained why the characters are invalid, in the reply I wrote in this thread on July 07. The characters are invalid simply because I switched my App ID credentials, with xxxxx, for the sake of this topic.

Ok thanks. About topratedseller - I uploaded a screenshot. ![alt text][1] [1]: /storage/temp/1458-topsellerfalse.png The link i provided has the characters xxxxxxxxx - you just need to replace them with your own SECURITY-APPNAME (as you said yourself, not to post here personal credentials)

Yes, check out this listing for example: if you go inside the url, you'll see seller is a top seller, and there is a buy it now option. but API says false for these values. also, it says return is true. but that's not enough info. i want to know exact return info. like period and conditions.
