findItemsIneBayStores / findItemsAdvanced : Invalid store name / No results...

Hi there, After working perfectly for several years, my call to **findItemsIneBayStores** for the ZK-images store is not working anymore. I get an errorId 5 *Invalid store name*... The store name hasn't changed, and I tried multiple things without any satisfying result (url encoding, removing hyphen...). I get the same error in the API Explorer... The store I'm searching in is here : http://stores.ebay.fr/ZK-images Nothing seems to be wrong with the name... Here is my call : http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?SECURITY-APPNAME=XXX&OPERATION-NAME=findItemsIneBayStores&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0&RESPONSE-DATA-FORMAT=XML&storeName=ZK-images&paginationInput.entriesPerPage=8&sortOrder=StartTimeNewest I've read about the findItemsIneBayStores ups and downs, so I tried to do my call with **findItemsAdvanced** and the store's user ID. But then, no results are shown... Here is my call : http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?SECURITY-APPNAME=XXX&OPERATION-NAME=findItemsAdvanced&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0&RESPONSE-DATA-FORMAT=XML&itemFilter(0).name=Seller&itemFilter(0).value=zk.images&sortOrder=StartTimeNewest I get a **searchResult count="0"** even if the **itemSearchURL** shows me 3940 results... Help... :( PS: some ampersands in the urls seem to display incorrectly in my post... But they're right in my calls ;)

Use of the store name with the APIs is historically unreliable and breaks often. Store subscribers are eBay sellers and all their listings are available thru the store or by seller name. Use findItemsAdvanced and the Seller itemFilter to access the listings instead.
