I just started getting an unusually high number of error 12000 responses to eBay Browse API Search requests with keywords such as "wdbpkj0040bbkwesn WD My Passport 4TB USB 3.2 Gen 1 External Hard Drive, Black." My script goes through a list of items and makes a request call for each product.
Most searches work fine but randomly, every 5th to 10th call ends with the 12000 error. Adding time/delays between requests makes no difference. Also, it is not tied to specific products as the same search may work the next time, and all seem to be validated and work fine through the API Explorer.
Have there been any disruptions or changes to the Browse Search API? Any thoughts or ideas?
Thanks for your time!
