Type
Description
categorySuggestions
Contains details about one or more suggested categories that correspond to the provided keywords. The array of suggested categories is sorted in order of eBay's confidence of the relevance of each category (the first category is the most relevant).

Important: This call is not supported in the Sandbox environment. It will return a response payload in which the categoryName fields contain random or boilerplate text regardless of the query submitted.
categoryTreeId
The unique identifier of the eBay category tree from which suggestions are returned.
categoryTreeVersion
The version of the category tree identified by categoryTreeId. It's a good idea to cache this value for comparison so you can determine if this category tree has been modified in subsequent calls.
