You can get them with the Trading API call GetItem if you set <IncludeItemSpecifics>True</IncludeItemSpecifics>

Hi @ku-2793,

You can use this call "Histogram" in outputSelector field for getting the aspects.

Yes, it would be nice to get all of this information in one call from one API, but it's not possible.

After your Finding API call, you need to call the GetMultipleItems function of the Shopping API, passing the Item IDs from your Finding call and requesting the ItemSpecifics field from the IncludeSelector. Shopping API is limited to 20 items per call though, so you may have to make multiple calls.

Documentation is here:
