Which API to use to get the most information about a product?

I want to search products by keyword and get as much information as possible about every matched products, which API should I use? There are so many APIs that seem to do the same job such as Browse API/item_summary, Browse API/item,Marketing API, Traditional APIs/Traditional Searching APIs/Finding API ,Traditional APIs/Traditional Shopping/Buying APIs/Shopping API . I'm really confused.

Hi @azo_2742,


You can use the Browse API of Buy API to create a rich selection of items for your buyers to browse with the keyword and category searches. Buy APIs allow you to integrate searching, finding and buying eBay inventory into websites and apps, provides a new opportunity for eBay affiliates to bring eBay items and purchases to their site—and earn commissions from eBay.

Please see the "Buy APIs Requirements" and "Buying Integration Guide" by going through the link given below.

To know more the Browse API, please go through the links given below.

Hi @jitendra_developersupport


Thank you for your information. I've tried the Browse API. The problem is if I search by keyword using item_summary, the result only includes title for each item. Is there any API that I can use to search by keyword and get detailed description and other information for returned items?
