Question: I need the currency for each item sent back as USD, not CAD or EURO. How can I do that ? 

Detailed Description 

Answer:  You can use Converted Price which is calculated in Real Time when an API call is made. The Converted Price is  the currency of the site that returned in an API response. 

 You just simply make the calls such as GetItemTransaction or GetItem against the US or any site of the interest for any given Items and retrieve the Converted Price in the following properties:

 For GetItemTransactions, a transaction's converted prices are :

   <ConvertedAdjustmentAmount currencyID="USD"></ConvertedAdjustmentAmount>
      <ConvertedAmountPaid currencyID="USD"></ConvertedAmountPaid>
      <ConvertedTransactionPrice currencyID="USD"></ConvertedTransactionPrice>

For GetItem, an item's converted prices are:

      <ConvertedBuyItNowPrice currencyID="USD">6.0</ConvertedBuyItNowPrice>
      <ConvertedStartPrice currencyID="USD">0.99</ConvertedStartPrice>
      <ConvertedReservePrice currencyID="USD">0.0</ConvertedReservePrice>
