GetCategorySpecifics is deprecated

I suggest you to use Taxonomy get_item_aspects_for_category

It looks like that one isn't included in the US taxonomy

Hi @pawnamerica_e21,


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 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


After getting the categoryIDs, you can execute the getItemAspectsForCategory call for getting the list of aspects that are appropriate or necessary for accurately describing items in the specified category.

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


Note: The GetCategorySpecifics call is being deprecated. No new features and/or fields will be added to GetCategorySpecifics, and it will no longer be supported after April 20, 2022. eBay recommends that large sellers and developers migrate to the Taxonomy API RESTful methods.


Best Regards,

eBay Developer Support
