Trading API ReviseInventoryStatus * 2020/08/01 2022/04/30 eBay has found that the values returned for the Quantity and StartPrice response fields in the InventoryStatusType are not reliably accurate and recommends that the response for these fields be ignored. These response fields will no longer be returned after April 30, 2022.

The Quantity and StartPrice request fields can still be used, and sellers can leverage the GetItem Trading API call to verify that the requested quantity and/or price updates were successful.

* Only a partial deprecation; please read Notes column.
