eBay Finding API

eBay's Finding API provides programmatic access to search capabilities on the eBay platform. It lets users search and browse for items listed on eBay, and provides metadata to refine searches and customize the searching process. Developers can use this API to build search and browse capabilities into bidding and buying applications.

The Finding API exposes a variety of search capabilities, including searching based on keyword, associated items, listing details, categories (domains), item characteristics (aspects), and domain and aspect metadata. The API can also provide keyword recommendations to help refine search results.

This API can be used via SOAP, HTTP, and REST. It can also be integrated with JavaScript and PHP using eBay's API tutorial kits.
