Optimize Downloadable Feeds with our New Quality Score


While our Full Downloadable Feeds offer access to thousands of item-level listings, we understand that this list can be hard to sift through. That’s why we have introduced a new field in these feeds to help you identify and display the items that have the best chance of converting. This new indicator provides a way to help you optimize your efforts when working with Full Downloadable Feeds. If you’re not yet familiar with these feeds, they are daily files of eBay listing data that you can use to cache eBay listings in your own system. They are most often used by publishers with high-traffic applications such as shopping comparison sites, loyalty programs and large portals.

This new quality score is generated by a machine-learning model, which identifies and groups items to predict a likely conversion rate. If you’re already using our Full Downloadable Feeds, you’ll see this new indicator now included in a field titled itemScore This score can range from 1 to 1000, with a higher number indicating that the item is more likely to convert.
