How can I change the store category ID for my active items?

Detailed Description

Here are the steps for modifying the store categories:

1.  If you don't already have your  store custom category IDs, make a call to GetStore:
http://developer.ebay.com/devzone/XML/docs/Reference/ebay/GetStore.html

Here is a sample request:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetStoreRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
  <CategoryStructureOnly>true</CategoryStructureOnly>
  <RequesterCredentials>
    <eBayAuthToken>*****</eBayAuthToken> 
  </RequesterCredentials>
</GetStoreRequest>

2.  For each item that you need to revise the store category, make a call to ReviseItem:

http://developer.ebay.com/devzone/XML/docs/Reference/ebay/ReviseItem.html



Here is a sample request:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ReviseItemRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
  <Item>
    <ItemID>110040510018</ItemID>
    <Storefront>
      <StoreCategoryID>14966</StoreCategoryID>
    </Storefront> 
  </Item> 
  <RequesterCredentials> 
    <eBayAuthToken>*****</eBayAuthToken>
  </RequesterCredentials>
</ReviseItemRequest>
