Getting total sales in a period of time

As you may already know, most of the developers used to find the total sales in a period of time up to 30 days using the GetItemTransactions API call by retrieving all the transactions and calculating the sold quantities. But since a month now, the GetItemTransactions API call stopped returning this information **if you are not a buyer nor a seller** for the item. Without mentioning that **there isn't** any information about this update on the **trading API release notes.** So me and my team were wondering if there is any alternatives for this call, so we can still get the sold history for any item on eBay, without having to be a seller or a buyer.

@sanjeev_developersupport Is this a new update? because we used to find this data without having to be the buyer nor the seller of a specific item as it is a **public information.** You can easily find any item's sold history directly from eBay. There is nothing about that on the release note: https://developer.ebay.com/devzone/xml/docs/ReleaseNotes.html

Hey @sanjeev_developersupport With GetSingleItem or GetMultipleItems calls, you can **ONLY** get the **total sold quantity.** I am talking about the **sales/transactions history** (Please check the attached picture) ![alt text][1] [1]: /storage/temp/2417-selection-084.png
