findItemsByProduct stopped working 2 days ago using UPC parameter: 41 ERROR Invalid product ID value.

I have an application that has worked correctly for years, but it stopped working 2 days ago.


findItemsByProduct suddenly will not accept a UPC (although it will still work using an ePID).


https://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsByProduct&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0&SECURITY-APPNAME=YOUR_EBAY_APP_ID&RESPONSE-DATA-FORMAT=XML&REST-PAYLOAD&productId.@type=UPC&productId=0054727750526


<findItemsByProductResponse xmlns="http://www.ebay.com/marketplace/search/v1/services"><ack>Failure</ack><errorMessage><error><errorId>41</errorId><domain>Marketplace</domain><severity>Error</severity><category>Request</category><message>Invalid product ID value.</message><subdomain>Search</subdomain><parameter>0054727750526</parameter></error></errorMessage><version>1.13.0</version><timestamp>2021-08-14T13:53:16.060Z</timestamp></findItemsByProductResponse>



I have tried different UPCs, same error result.


Not sure what is going on here, but I need to get this addressed. I didn't make any changes on my end, as I said it has been working properly for years, but 2 days ago it just stopped.


Can I only report this kind of issue to technical support by purchasing premium support hours and explaining it there?

I paid for Premium Support and created a ticket on Saturday. They got back to me today to say they have forwarded it on to the appropriate engineering team and will get back to me as soon as they have an update.

I will post an update once I get it.

Thanks again. Will keep checking back. I noticed some very big tools are affected by this right now, such as BookFinder.com.

Exactly! I'm shocked only a couple of us here are trying to get this fixed.

I would assume that searching by UPC on Ebay would be a pretty fundamental function for any 3rd party software. I thought these boards would be lit up over it.

Nothing to update, support wrote back the following on 8/20/21 after I asked for an update:


The engineering team is still looking into the issue and we will keep you posted on the progress.
