How do you delete an eBay Unsold Item using the Trading API?

How do you delete an eBay 'Unsold Item' using the Trading API? There doesn't appear to be any obvious method in the Call Reference.

Hello,

 

Thanks for posting in forums. Can you confirm what you meant my "Unsold Item" ? 

 

if an item is ended without being sold?(I don't think you meant this).

The item is already ended.

if an item is still active and unsold?

You can use EndItem Call to end the item giving appropriate ending reason in the request.

Please let me know if you were  asking something else.

Thanks

Rajesh

Hi,

thanks

Yes, I was asking something else.

 

If you end an item on eBay, (or an auction ends without a sale), it's placed in 'Unsold listings'. (Click 'Unsold' in 'Selling Manager' in My eBay.) From there you can relist it. But after relisting the old item is still there, though flagged as relisted. To get rid of it (to prevent an accidental double-listing, for instance), you have to manually delete it. (See the 'Action' dropdown in 'Unsold listings' - there's a Delete option there.)

 

What I want is the API equivalent of that Delete in the Action dropdown.

 

And sorry for the late reply. It seems I wasn't notified about it...

I have exactly the same question, how can we delete an item from unsold listings?

 

Our code will end an item (when it's been sold through another channel) automatically but then, if the item is re-stocked, it will attempt to list is again, the AddFixedPriceItem, correctly, failed with duplicate SKU. We then revert to RelistFixedPriceItemCall which succeeds. But, in many (but not all) instances, we find that the item has been  duplicated although for all of our calls.

Same problem: need to delete items from "Unsold" items list via API. Cannot find in eBay SDK docs.

 

Thanks for any hints!

@jlee2027 3 years since I first asked and still no method provided. :) My guess would be they consider this to be too much of a risk to add to the API. I'd suggest the best approach is to treat the Unsold List as an archive you never delete and maintain your own list of your active and ended listings.

@franhuan6 You could filter the UnsoldList with "DurationInDays" based on the number of days since you last checked the UnSoldList. From the docs for UnsoldList/DurationInDays... "Specifies the time period during which an item was won or lost. Similar to the period drop-down menu in the My eBay user interface. For example, to return the items won or lost in the last week, specify a DurationInDays of 7."
