Finding automotive products using UPC

Hi all, I want to use FindProducts API call to search for products with a specific UPC. Products that I want to search are auto parts, for example: UPC = 703639276883 http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=703639276883&_rdc=1 Flowing the documentation at: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/shopping/docs/CallRef/FindProducts.html#Samples I tried: http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping?callname=FindProducts&responseencoding=XML&appid=MY-APP-ID&siteid=0&version=525&ProductID.type=UPC&ProductID.Value=703639276883&IncludeSelector=Items Also, I tried with other options such as: siteid=100 (Ebay Motor) ProductID.Type= Reference/UPC... But all the calls returns 'No match found' Meanwhile for another UPC (not automotive part) then it works fine. http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping?callname=FindProducts&responseencoding=XML&appid=MY-APP-ID&siteid=0&version=525&ProductID.type=UPC&ProductID.Value=883929104505&IncludeSelector=Items returns my desired results! Do you know that is the problem here? Doesn't Ebay support FindProducts for eBay Motors (ID=100) ? Thanks in advance !

You aren't hitting site 100, the links you posted are site 0 (US) But it still won't work The UPC cross reference isn't reliably populated. Try the Finding API and pass the UPC in the keywords field. That will give you items. You can also get the Reference ID from the response and use that with FindProducts (using site 100) if you need to. Life would be easier if they returned the UPC, EAN, and ISBN in the Finding response along with the Reference ID.

Thanks ! I did tried with siteid=100 and other combinations. I also tried with just search by QueryKeywords=myUPC,but http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping?callname=FindProducts&responseencoding=XML&appid=APP_ID&siteid=100&version=525&QueryKeywords=703639276883&IncludeSelector=Items still doesn't works ! Meanwhile, for siteid=0 and other keyword: http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping?callname=FindProducts&responseencoding=XML&appid=APP_ID&siteid=0&version=525&QueryKeywords=harry&IncludeSelector=Items still work fine Besides using FindProduct from Shopping API, I also tried with findItemsByProduct from Finding API and the result is the same. Is it possible that Ebay Motors doesn't support API call ?

@clickprime findItemsAdvanced result doesn't include UPC so it's hard to verify, but that works ! Thank you very much !
