Convert search URL to findItemsAdvanced

Hi, I checked the documentation, but I cannot find a method that would fit my needs. I would like to convert the ebay search url, i.e. [Example serach query][1] to the list of parameters needed by findItemsAdvanced. This way I would be able to prepare the search filters in the browser and then use them to make a findItemsAdvanced call. I see that FindItemsAdvancedResponse returns itemSearchURL which converts FindItemsAdvancedRequest to URL. What I need is searchURL to FindItemsAdvancedRequest . Thanks for helping.

They are really lacking on this. It would allow for a much better user experience in apps as users could just go to ebay, make the search and copy-paste the URL. And seeing they already return an itemSearchURL from FindItemsAdvanced requests, it would not be that hard to allow for the reverse to happen.

You're on your own for this, AFAIK. You'll need to examine and develop your own mapping between eBay URL parameters and API query filters/options. I don't think there's any API/service to handle it automatically for you/us, or even any formal documentation from eBay on what the params are. A few years ago, I assembled this page with parameters I found, but IDK if they're still valid, as I haven't kept the page up to date, and it's certainly not comprehensive: hxxp://www.helios825.org/url-parameters.php
