Finding API search result and site result are not matching for 'All Categories' scenario

With category mentioned as input, finding API search results match with ebay site result. If category is not given, finding API search result slightly varies with site result. Is there any other parameter to be added for 'All Categories' scenario, to get same results as getting in ebay site? Current I'm using following input along with search item. - item filter types 'FreeShippingOnly' and 'HideDuplicateItems' as true - ListingType as All - LocatedIn as 'WorldWide' - SortOrder as 'BestMatch'. Any inputs would be appreciated.,With particular category mentioned as input, finding API search results match with ebay site result.

It's never going to match 100%. With thousands of items being listed every minute, there are always differences. The website also has special handling for some searches that are not reflected in the API. If you have a more specific use case, please clarify. Also, LocatedIn=WorldWide is the same as not specifying LocatedIn, ListingType=All is the same as not specifying ListingType. We generally recommend not using parameters that are equivalent to the defaults and keeping the URL as short as possible.
