Why do I get the following error, when I try to include a secondary category to my multi-variation listing?

    <ShortMessage>Variations not enabled in category</ShortMessage>
    <LongMessage>Selected category is not enabled for variation listings</LongMessage>

It is not permissible to include a secondary category which is not variation enabled to any multi-variation item.

This includes Revising an existing item to add a secondary category which does not support multi-variation listings.

To check to see if a category is Variation Enabled, call GetCategoryFeatures and look for the following tag.


If this returns false, you cannot include this category in your AddFixedPriceItem, RelistItem, or ReviseFixedPriceItem request.
