I'll check the API this week and see if there is anything I can adjust. They did make it harder to get last time they changed something, so they may have eliminated access to it (or just changed something because why not...)

Do let me know about these things! Or new features you might like to see.

I wonder if the API has changed? eBay doesn't want you to know the best offer price (as they want you to pay more for a similar item). Same as they don't want you to be able to detect shill bidders, etc.

I notice that eBay UK now has that god-awful Global Shipping Program as well. This takes a book that would cost ten pounds to ship to NZ (tracked) cost twenty pounds, take three time as long and quite probably be opened by eBay for re-packing (without the packaging materials).

Summary: Bloody eBay.
