there are no "special" attributes, only "attributes/specifics" ;)

for example:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/334230128215

look at the "Item specifics", it says:

Features: 1st Edition

"Features" = Specific

"1st Edition" = SpecificValue

Hi @ubix,

Please make getItemAspectsForCategory call taxonomy API for a categoryID to get the latest VariationSpecifics/Aspects of that category.

Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/commerce/taxonomy/resources/category_tree/methods/getItemAspectsForCategory


For getting the all of the latest and supported category hierarchy for a eBay marketplace, please follow the steps mentioned below:

- Firstly, you need to call GetDefaultCategoryTreeId to retrieve a reference (category_tree_id) to the default category tree associated with the specified eBay marketplace ID.

Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/commerce/taxonomy/resources/category_tree/methods/getDefaultCategoryTreeId

- After getting the category_tree_id make a GetCategoryTree call to retrieve the complete category tree that is identified by the category_tree_id parameter.

Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/commerce/taxonomy/resources/category_tree/methods/getCategoryTree

To learn more about the category tree structure, please take an overview of the Taxonomy API by going through the link given below:

eBay Developer Support
