Categories & attributes

Overview

Categories are a hierarchical set of groups in which items of a similar nature are listed, called “Category Tree”. Each site has its own set of categories, which means that Argentina will have a unique set of categories, different from the ones in Brazil.
The motors category structure goes from type, to brand, to model of the vehicle and then users can navigate through attributes like kilometers, transmission, color, etc.
There’s also the particularity that we have an specific category for savings plans for vehicles where you can list your own.
Before listing an item, you need to go through the category structure and choose the one in which you want to list. To help you make it, you can download the complete category hierarchy with ID and human-friendly names from our API.

  • Categories by Site

  • Search by Category
  • Paging & sizing results

Categories by Site

The Sites resource can give you the category structure for a particular country, in this case Argentina.

https://api.mercadolibre.com/sites/MLA/categories
"categories": [
{
"id": "MLA5725",
"name": "Accesorios para Vehiculos",
},
{
"id": "MLA1071",
"name": "Animales y Mascotas",
},
{
"id": "MLA1367",
"name": "Antigüedades",
},
{
"id": "MLA1743",
"name": "Autos, Motos y Otros",
},

As you can see, you get the “path_from_root” and children_categories attributes. Use these attributes to browse through the category tree and find the specific category for your item.

Now let’s call a leaf category:

Finding the best category for your item

A leaf category is the last category on the tree and those are the only categories where you can post items.
Choosing the right category for your item will determine how quickly buyers will find your item and will improve your chances of selling it. For this reason, we highly recommend to use our Category predictor tool before listing an item.

Maybe some categories won’t have a good suggestions, so you’ll have to make the user of your system to map manually the categories for his products. The simplest process could be to use the Category API and navigate the category tree to detect the best option. You must use only those categories retrieved from the API which don’t have subcategories related.

Another option could be to find similar items in MercadoLibre and use their category.
