I'm talking about items of competitors.

For example: if I search for iPhone7 on ebay and I choose "show only sold items" I can see all iPhone's that were sold recently and at what price they were sold.

Is there a way to get that information via eBay API? So that I could calculate the recent average selling price of i.e. iPhone7 on eBay?

there is the finding api, which will be replaced some day with the a new rest API:

https://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/finding/CallRef/findCompletedItems.html#Response.searchResult.item.listingInfo.buyItNowPrice

and, I don´t know if that is a help, the browse API:

https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/buy/static/ref-buy-browse-filters.html

that seems to have a filter called "lastSoldDate".

eBay has its own API to help search for active listings. HOWEVER, eBay no longer supports searching for completed (sold) listings, as their "findCompletedItems" API has depreciated.

I needed a way to get only sold listings for my business, as I needed real sale data for phones and computers, so eBay's API was no help. I decided to create my own API that scrapes eBay for sold item data. You can input a keyword like "iPhone", and input other characteristics like brand, model, carrier, category, condition, etc. And it returns specific data about each item as well as the overall average price of all items. The average latency is 1,800ms.

An Hcaptcha is required every 2 hours, but my API can solve it, update the cookie header and redo the request with no loss in the success rate.

I noticed a lot of other people were having trouble with this same issue, so I decided to post the API to a site called rapidapi for anyone to use. It does cost money to solve the captchas, and it took me a lot of time to develop this API, so I do charge a little bit of money. Let me know if you like the API, what you would change about it, if the price is fair, etc.
