Received Notification "Shopping API FindItemsAdvanced call is being shut down Dec 1"

Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question...but here goes. I've received a recent notification advising that the deprecated Shopping API call **FindItemsAdvanced** will be shut down as of Dec 1 and that I'll be affected due to my use of this call. I've investigated my code carefully and it appears that I do **not** use the Shopping API call FindItemsAdvanced. I would appreciate it if someone could view the following API calls to see if there is something in them that might have triggered this notification: http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=**findItemsAdvanced**&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0 http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=**findItemsIneBayStores**&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0 http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=**findItemsByProduct**&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0 http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping?callname=**GetMultipleItems**&version=517&siteid=$siteid So you can see that I'm already using the correct findItemsAdvanced call via the **Finding API**, although the version number is 4 years old. The only Shopping API call that I'm using is **GetMultipleItems** which also has an old version number. Just wondering if the old version numbers are triggering some alarm bells at eBay's end or is there something else within the above 4 calls that is causing the issue? I'm stumped :( Cheers

How did you get the notification? By email from the eBay Dev team? In an API call response? I'm not surprised they're finally pulling the plug on that. I thought they'd already removed that API call fully, but I guess it's just been working quietly in the background all this time, even after being officially deprecated several years ago (2009 or 2010). Actually, it's pretty cool that eBay Dev let it run for this long in a deprecated state.

Came via email from the eBay Dev team. Actually, just solved the problem. One of my clients was using an older version of a particular plugin. The upgraded plugin has the newer findItemsAdvanced code included......fixed issue. Thanks for taking the time to respond anyhow helios825....Cheers mate.
