Do you need item specifics values for a particular product or item you want to list on eBay?

If the answer is yes, then you will need to know what are the appropriate values to provide.

Item Specifics are name-value pairs that describe typical aspects of items in a particular category. They enable sellers to classify items by presenting descriptive details in a structured way. For example, in a jewelry category, you might describe a locket using "Gemstone=Amber" (where "Gemstone" is the name and "Amber" is the value), but in a Washers & Dryers category, you might use "Type=Top-Loading" instead.

There is currently a limitation in GetCategorySpecifics which limits the output of these values to the first 25, however, being that the output is in alphabetical orders, many of the values in the alphabet are not being returned for certain aspects.

Please refer to the attached files for the site you are using.
