    Unhappy JSON - Syntax question

    I'm doing my first steps with AJAX and JSON and managed to write a simple script to request the balance of an envato useraccount based on the username and API key entered in two input fields.

    Now I want to keep playing with it and request the price of an item. I duplicated the code, but struggling to adjust my code as the JSON syntax the server delivered this time looks a bit different.

    Here's the JSON code I get back from the server for the balance request (which I can handle):

    But the JSON code for the item request has a bracket more, that I probably need to add to my code:
    {"item-prices":[{"licence":"Regular License","price":"8.00"}]}

    The complete API documentation is available at: http://marketplace.envato.com/api/documentation (just in case someone needs that)

    How do I need to adjust the following code to work???

    HTML Code:
    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
      <meta charset="utf-8">
      <title>jQuery.getJSON demo</title>
      #details {
        width: 100px;
        height: 100px;
        background: #ccc;
      <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
    <form id="itemform" name="itemform">
        <input type="text" id="itemid" name="itemid" value="1234" onclick="this.value='';" />
        <input type="submit" value="Request" />
    <div id="iteminfo"></div>
            itemid = $('form#itemform #itemid').val();
            console.log("Submitted ID: "+itemid);
          function getItemPrice(itemid) {
            itemid = itemid;
            console.log("Requested ID: "+itemid);
            var APIrequest = "http://marketplace.envato.com/api/edge/item-prices:"+itemid+".json";
            $.getJSON(APIrequest, function(data2){
                var items2 = [];
                $.each(data2, function(key, val){
                    items2.push("<div>Licence: "+ val.licence +"<br />Price: "+ val.price+"</div>");
                $("<span/>", {
                    html: items2.join("")

    Thank you very much in advance!

    I was able to find a solution. In case somebody else is looking for the same, here's the changed code:

    var items2 = [];
    $.each(data2, function(key, val){
    $.each(val, function(key, val){
    items2.push("<div>Licence: "+ val.licence +"<br />Price: "+ val.price+"</div>");
