GetSellerList returns wrong buy it now price in wrong currency

When I examine the data return in the ItemType object the BuyItNowPrice is returning a CurrencyID of 'USD' and a Value of '0.0'. The item in question is listed on the Australian site with a Buy It Now Price of AUD225.00. The ShippingDetails object returns the correct amount in AUD as it should. All other data appears to be OK. The service has been configured for siteid 15 for the Australian site. Any ideas whats going wrong?

We are on Trading API Release 989. The StartPrice field is still 0.00 on eBay items: 391705981356 391711276701 391710227259 etc... However, eBay is reporting they are Auctions. http://www.ebay.com/sch/missouri-roofrunner/m.html?item=391710227259&hash=item5b33bfbb3b%3Ag%3AnmcAAOSwr~lYq3Rp&rt=nc&LH_Auction=1 These items are therefore, not coming through as Auctions on GetSellerList. Only the CurrentPrice field is set for these items. We need a method to tell these are Auctions. Thank you.

@jlee2027, all 3 item IDs above are auction items. When you do a GetItem call, you can check for ListingType. A ListingType of "Chinese" is an auction item. StartPrice in such listings is the minimum bid price. CurrentPrice is the starting price or highest bid price, depending on whether item has a bid. BuyItNow price is only for auction listings with the BuyItNow option. When an auction does not have this option BuyItNowPrice is 0. On the other hand, on fix price items you only need to look at StartPrice as the only indicator of what that fixed price is.

Hi, For FixedPrice items, you should be looking at the StartPrice field instead of BuyItNowPrice. Regards, eBay Developer Support.
