StartTime is different between FindingAPI and ShoppingAPI/getSingleItem
Hello everyone, I need your help. I call the API FindingAPI / findItemsByCategory and ShoppingAPI / getSingleItem I see that the StartTime responses in two APIs are different. So which one is correct ? Whey are they different ? Thanks
This is per the docs Finding API says: Time stamp that eBay recorded as the moment the listing was made available. ... **Note that it is possible for startTime to be different from the value returned by GetSingleItem.** Shopping says: Time stamp (in GMT) that eBay recorded as the moment that the listing was made available. **The start time returned by a search call may vary from the value returned by GetSingleItem.** There is no explanation why. but this may also be related to the future listings that are not buyable that sometimes appear in the Finding API. I suspect it has something to do with scheduled listings. If you need the real start time after the fact, you could back out the end time by full days to get a match on the standard listing durations of 1,3,5,7,10,30 days.
