So, I've been trying to figure out how to replicate 99rental.com behaviour (it fishes the "0.99$ rental of the week" for the U.S. iTunes Store) for the Finnish iTunes Store.

So far I've gotten up to here:


So, I do a search with the term country=FI (looking from Finland), with the term entity=movie (I'm looking for movies, that's for sure), the trackRentalPrice=0.99000 (for some reason this is what I need to look for to get the rental price of 0.99), and then.. then nothing happens unless I write something like term=heist (since this week's iTunes 0.99€ rental is a film with the name heist on it). If there is no term added into the mix, I'll get this as a result:

{ "resultCount":0, "results": [] }

If I on the other hand write in term=heist I'll get 11 results, one of which has the "trackRentalPrice":0.99000 . So feels like not only do I need to put "something" in as a term, to even get a result, the second feels is that my trackRentalPrice=0.99000 is completely ignored.

So, what am I doing wrong? I've tried to do the same query with trackRentalPrice="0.99000", I've tried trackRentalPrice="0,99000", I've tried trackRentalPrice=0,99000 all to no avail.

Please help?

Btw, not looking to recreate 99rental for the Finnish iTunes Store, just want a result I could use in a Shortcut shortcut.

    trackRentalPrice doesn't look like a documented query param, and I don't see a relevant param for it (and term is described as a required param)? Are you just assuming since it's in the response object, you can use it as a search param?

  • For those voting to close this as off-topic due to software development, this question is about using the Shortcuts app. This, I believe, was already discussed on the Meta site.
