Getting less results than the website?

The website says there are 92 results. My call returns 4 (all found within the 92) only. I just started working with this API. I have downloaded the JAVA files provided and copy/pasted the main method sample they gave to search for Harry Potter books. All worked fine. (I'm using a production Key, since it recommends it for the search) I now want to search for cars. To test it, I'm building and passing the following object: 1 10 2012 TOYOTA COROLLA LE 6445 I was assuming that would return something similar to: [SameSearchOnEbay][1] However, I have that 4 vs 92 issue. I don't see that I'm limiting my search results in any other way, and I don't see how I would go about getting the rest of the results. Any ideas to what might be going on?

A few issues: Your API call is hitting category 6445, the "equivalent" web link is hitting 6001. I see 4 results at the website in Chrome and 22 in Firefox. After clearing cookies I see 22 in Chrome. So AGAIN there's some mishandling of results based on cookies. Maybe your 92 is due to cookies? But the 22 still doesn't match. I don't see a pattern to it. Can't think of a default that would cause this. Searching all ListingTypes and WorldWide doesn't change it. http://www.ebay.com/sch/Cars-Trucks-/6445/i.html?_ddo=1&_ipg=100&_from=R40&_nkw=2012+toyota+corolla+le&_vxp=mtr

There must be more parameters that you're sending in the call. Such as, the GlobalID. Which GlobalID are you using?
