New eBay Search API Announcement - November 2021

Nov 15, 2021

New Search API

eBay is migrating all 3rd party apps over to a new Search API by January 1, 2022 and is removing access to the old one that SeeSpotBid has been using for the past two years. We are striving to make the transition as seamless as possible for our end users, but there are some differences. The 'Worldwide Search' option has been removed, but results will still include international listings that ship to your specified country. End Times are also being removed for Buy It Now listings, so only Auction listings will show a "Time Left" value. Search Results may look different for some of your saved Search Alerts, which is usually due to the country they're listed in.

What You Need To Do

Nothing. We'll make the switch to the new API on our backend servers and it shouldn't impact your use of the app at all.

When Will This Switch Occur?

We are pushing out v2.5 of SeeSpotBid to iOS and Android app stores this week. This paves the way for the new API changes. In a few weeks, we'll make the API switch on our servers, and you'll stop seeing end times for BIN listings.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us and we'll help out. Thanks for being a SeeSpotBid customer!
