XML-Encoding Parameters

You may find this parameter useful in some environments.

Parameter Value Description
XMLEscaping "Single" or "Double".

XMLEscaping specifies whether responses are XML-encoded in a single pass or a double pass. By default, XMLEscaping is "Single" and Product Advertising API responses are encoded only once in XML.

For example, if the response data includes an ampersand character (&), the character is returned in its regular XML encoding (&). If XMLEscaping is "Double", the same ampersand character is XML-encoded twice (&). The Double value for XMLEscaping is useful in some clients, such as PHP, that do not decode text within XML elements.
