This call retrieves applicable compatible vehicle property values based on the specified eBay marketplace, specified eBay category, and filters used in the request. Compatible vehicle properties are returned in the compatibilityProperties.name field of a getCompatibilityProperties response.
One compatible vehicle property applicable to the specified eBay marketplace and eBay category is specified through the required compatibility_property filter. Then, the user has the option of further restricting the compatible vehicle property values that are returned in the response by specifying one or more compatible vehicle property name/value pairs through the filter query parameter.
See the documentation in URI parameters section for more information on using the compatibility_property and filter query parameters together to customize the data that is retrieved.
This method is supported in Sandbox environment. To access the endpoint, just replace the
api.ebay.com root URI with
|This is the unique identifier of the category tree. The following is the list of category_tree_id values and the eBay marketplaces that they represent. One of these ID values must be passed in as a path parameter, and the category_id value, that is passed in as query parameter, must be a valid eBay category on that eBay marketplace that supports parts compatibility for cars, trucks, or motorcycles.
|One compatible vehicle property applicable to the specified eBay marketplace and eBay category is specified in this required filter. Compatible vehicle properties are returned in the compatibilityProperties.name field of a getCompatibilityProperties response.
For example, if you wanted to retrieve all vehicle trims for a 2018 Toyota Camry, you would set this filter as follows:
compatibility_property=Trim and then include the following three name/value filters through one filter parameter:
So, putting this all together, the URI would look something like this:
|The unique identifier of an eBay category. This eBay category must be a valid eBay category on the specified eBay marketplace, and the category must support parts compatibility for cars, trucks, or motorcycles.
The getAutomotivePartsCompatibilityPolicies method of the Selling Metadata API can be used to retrieve all eBay categories for an eBay marketplace that support parts compatibility for vehicles.
|One or more compatible vehicle property name/value pairs are passed in through this query parameter. The compatible vehicle property name and corresponding value are delimited with a colon (:), such as
filter=Year:2018, and multiple compatible vehicle property name/value pairs are delimited with a comma (,).
Note: Commas are used as delimiters between filter values. If a value includes a comma (e.g.,
BodyStyle:AWD B9 8W5,C8WD) you must include a backslash (\) immediately before the comma to prevent it from being evaluated as a delimiter.
As with all query parameter values, the filter parameters must be URL encoded. For more information about encoding request parameters, refer to URL encoding query parameter values.
For example, to retrieve all vehicle trims for a 2022 Audi A4:
The following sample shows the same filter but with URL encoding for the blank spaces.
