    Finding API WorldWide search has been released to Production.

   You can use LocatedIn filter with value set to “WorldWide” to find items, regardless of their Location:

<itemFilter>
<name>LocatedIn</name>
<value>WorldWide</value>
</itemFilter>

     There are three new filter values for LocatedIn: “WorldWide”, “North America”, and “European”, apply to LocatedIn only. Note the casing for WorldWide and the space in North America.

   Here are sample requests:
Without filter (316 total entries)
http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsAdvanced&SERVICE-VERSION=1.11.0&SECURITY-APPNAME=YOUR APPID&keywords=canon+60d+slr

With filter (406 total entries, includes added locations)
The following request returned items from all the locations as the non-filtered request, and also item from Malaysia and United Kingdom.

URL format - HTTP GET

 http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsAdvanced&SERVICE-VERSION=1.11.0&SECURITY-APPNAME=YOUR APPID&keywords=canon+60d+slr&itemFilter%280%29.name=LocatedIn&itemFilter%280%29.value=WorldWide

 

XML format - HTTP POST

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<findItemsAdvancedRequest xmlns="http://www.ebay.com/marketplace/search/v1/services">
     <keywords>canon 60d slr</keywords>
   <itemFilter>
      <name>LocatedIn</name>
      <value>WorldWide</value>
   </itemFilter>
</findItemsAdvancedRequest>

 

 

 The value "European" works only if the GLOBAL-ID value corresponds to a European eBay site (e.g., EBAY-FR, EBAY-DE, EBAY-GB, EBAY-AT, ...). For example, won’t work for eBay US (EBAY-US) or eBay Australia (EBAY-AU).
