Item Variations are multiple similar (but not identical) items in a single fixed-price listing. For example, a T-shirt listing could contain multiple items of the same brand that vary by color and size; each variation would specify a combination of one of these colors and sizes. Each variation can have a different quantity and price. You can buy multiple items from one variation at the same time. (That is, one order line item can contain multiple items from a single variation.)

Table Specific Information


An item Id must be specified to get variations for the item which this Id represents.

SELECT * FROM ItemVariations WHERE ItemId = '110187147205'


The fields which are required for insert are ItemId, VariationSpecificsAggregate, StartPrice, and Quantity. VariationSpecificsAggregate should contain variation specifics structured in XML format. For instance, the following VariationSpecificsAggregate adds a large blue item:


The following query adds a variation of a large blue item with a StartPrice of 15 and a Quantity of 100.

INSERT INTO ItemVariations (ItemId,VariationSpecificsAggregate,Quantity,StartPrice) values ('110188946596','<NameValueList><Name>Color</Name><Value>Blue</Value></NameValueList><NameValueList><Name>Size</Name><Value>L</Value></NameValueList>','100','15')


ItemId and VariationSpecificsAggregate are required for updating a variation. Optionally other details can be provided for variations, like StartPrice and Quantity. VariationSpecificsAggregate should be in XML format and should contain all specifics which identify a variation.

UPDATE ItemVariations SET Quantity='5' WHERE ItemId='110188946596' AND VariationSpecificsAggregate='<NameValueList><Name>Color</Name><Value>Blue</Value></NameValueList><NameValueList><Name>Size</Name><Value>L</Value></NameValueList>'


ItemId and VariationSpecificsAggregate are required for deleting a variation.

DELETE FROM ItemVariations WHERE ItemId='110188946596' AND VariationSpecificsAggregate='<NameValueList><Name>Color</Name><Value>Blue</Value></NameValueList><NameValueList><Name>Size</Name><Value>L</Value></NameValueList>'
