How Many Offers Does it Take? 64-bits Worth!

Hey Publishers,

As our offer inventory continues to grow, so do the unique identifiers we assign to each product and offer. 

Users of our Catalog API and FTP Data Feed should be sure that their processes will be able to handle a 64-bit signed integer datatype as we approach unique identifier 2147483648. This will apply to both our productID ("PID") and offerID ("OID") integers.

Why 2147483648? 

The number 2,147,483,647 is the maximum value for a 32-bit signed integer. For more on the wonderful world of prime numbers, see what Wikipedia has to say!
