I tested that URL and I see the same thing: -1 often returned, but then a seemingly-correct HitCount returned after several browser/call refreshes. While this is mildly annoying, eBay does **not** consider this a bug. [See the docs here][1] with this note: "This field is retrieved asynchronously. If you believe the item has a publicly visible hit count, but this field is not returned, retry the call."

When it's wrong, how do yo know it's wrong? Is it repeatedly wrong? And how does it compare to the result from [GetSingleItem][1] ? [1]: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/shopping/docs/CallRef/GetSingleItem.html

not always, but many many times. And sometimes the value is wrong.
