Availability Parameter

The Availability parameter filters out of ItemSearch results those items that are unavailable. The availability of an item can change rapidly. There is typically a discrepancy between an item’s availability as reported by ItemSearch and the item’s true availability, as reported by Amazon’s web site. For this reason, the availability of items reported by ItemSearch and by Amazon’s web site will be slightly different. Items that are “available” are classified on Amazon’s retail web site as:

  • Currently for sale

  • Pre-orders

  • Special orders

  • New releases

  • E-mail me when items become available

  • Items available for in-store pickup

  • Items for sale by third parties
