Fields

CategoryID ( string ) [0..1]
An eBay category ID is passed into this field to identify the eBay category for which the seller is providing Item Specific name-value(s) pairs. Multiple CategoryID fields can be passed in if the Item Specific name-value(s) pairs are applicable for multiple categories. However, more categories can result in longer call response times. If your request times out, specify fewer category IDs.

Note: The call request requires either one or more CategoryID values (at the root level), one or more CategorySpecific.CategoryID values, or the CategorySpecificsFileInfo boolean field. The CategorySpecificsFileInfo field is only used if the user plans to use the downloadFile call of the FileTransfer API to retrieve Item Specifics. CategoryID and CategorySpecific.CategoryID can both be used in the same call request.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use CategoryID.

ItemSpecifics ( NameValueListArrayType ) [0..1]
This container is used to input customized Item Specific name-value(s) pairs for a specific category to discover if eBay has better name or value recommendations for that Item Specific. The Item Specific name can be an arbitrary name that the user wants to check, or it could be a name that was returned in a prior GetCategorySpecifics response. At least one NameValueList container must be used if the CategorySpecific container is used.
