BrowseAPI Item Specifics

Using the Browse API (or any other API for that matter), what is the most API call efficient way to retrieve item specifics for every item? I am surprised that Browse API does not include item specifics already in the search call. Do I need to call a getItem for every item returned from Browse API to get the item specifics?

Hi @ku-2793,

Yes, for getting the item aspects of an listing you need to use the getItem call of Browse API. Search call only let you look for eBay items by various query parameters and retrieves summaries of the items.
Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/buy/browse/resources/item/methods/getItem

Is there any way to filter by brands using aspect filters on the browseAPI?
