Could anybody tell me how to get max and min price from category by id?
Theoretically, this should get you max price in eBay US CategoryID=1, of all currently active listings:
Experiment with these other sort orders too: PricePlusShippingLowest , PricePlusShippingHighest
You'll also probably want to include other parameters/filters to narrow things down to your use case.
