Elige tipo de servicio

Las categorías son un conjunto jerárquico de grupos en los cuales se enumeran las publicaciones de naturaleza similar, denominados “Árbol de Categorías”. Las categorías ayudan a los usuarios a buscar fácilmente el tipo de publicación que desean. Cada sitio tiene su propio conjunto de categorías, es decir que Argentina tendrá un conjunto único de categorías, diferente de las que encontrarás en Brasil, porque cada país tiene sus propias particularidades en el mercado clasificados. Antes de publicar un publicación, debes explorar la estructura de categorías y elegir en cuál deseas publicar. Para ayudarte, puedes descargar la jerarquía completa de categorías con ID y nombres fáciles desde nuestra API.


Categorías por Site

El recurso Sites puede ofrecerte la estructura de categorías para un país en particular, en este caso Argentina.


Ejemplo:

curl -X GET https://api.mercadolibre.com/sites/MLA/categories

{
"id": "MLA1071",

},
{
"id": "MLA1367",
"name": "Antigüedades",

Elige la mejor categoría para tu producto

La categoría hoja es la última categoría del árbol y la única en la que se pueden publicar productos. La elección de la categoría adecuada para su producto determinará la rapidez con la que lo encontrarán los compradores, lo que mejorará sus posibilidades de venta. Por eso recomendamos utilizar nuestra herramienta de predicción de categorías antes de publicar un producto. Tal vez algunas de las categorías no tengan buenas sugerencias, por lo que debe hacer que el usuario del sistema realice un mapeo de las categorías manualmente para encontrar sus productos. Un proceso más sencillo podría ser utilizar la API de categorías y navegar por el árbol de categorías para detectar cuál es la mejor opción. Sólo debe utilizar las categorías recuperadas de la API que no tengan subcategorías relacionadas. Otra opción podría ser encontrar productos similares en Mercado Livre para utilizar su categoría.
