Hi uslivinghomeoutfitter, We don't yet have a REST API call for retrieving eBay category id, and you will need to find categoryID from Trading API [GetCatogories][1] call for now. Let me know if you have more questions. [1]: http://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/XML/docs/Reference/eBay/GetCategories.html Best Regards,

You may be able to use GetCategoryInfo in the older Shopping API for your needs. You can send your request via REST/GET and get XML or JSON response that contains CatIDs, child categories, cat paths, etc. http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/shopping/docs/CallRef/GetCategoryInfo.html
