Call to get listing views, watchers and sold count using new Sell API

Is there a call to get listing views, watchers and sold count using new Sell API?


I couldn't see anything like this in the docs.


Thanks

afaik ebay hasn't made any plans to deprecate the Trading API, and i doubt they will anytime soon (if ever) as it forms the backbone of their entire system. the Inventory REST API is just a proxy to the Trading API anyways. what's more likely is that small developers will be pushed to migrate over time, and the Trading API will become internalized with restricted access (but this is purely my speculation)

what you can do is use the APIs in tandem. listings managed through the Inventory API cannot be modified with the Trading API, however you can still view their data, including information that isn't available in the Inventory API, with the GetItem call

Thanks @naizarak2

Isn't the Trading API deprecated or going to be deprecated soon? is there any point developing using the Trading API?

offer objects have a 'soldQuantity' field but it's inaccurate

https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/sell/inventory/resources/offer/methods/getOffer#response.listing.soldQuantity


you'd have to use the Trading API to get viewers, watchers, and the correct sell count for a listing
