By utilizing the
/navigation endpoint in the Amazon Navigation API, you can either list or search for categories on a specific Amazon domain. This functionality provides convenient ways to explore and locate desired product categories, enhancing the user experience and facilitating efficient navigation within the Amazon catalog.
Amazon categories hierarchy
Amazon categories are organized in a hierarchy, and each category can have one or more child categories. You can find the child categories of a specific category by using the parent category ID and utilizing the
parent_idparameter. To fetch the top-level categories, you can make a request without specifying any
parent_id. Top-level categories can be identified by the
is_rootproperty set to
API-KEY. Use your
API-KEY for authentication.
Click "200" at the bottom of the page in the Responses block to see the JSON structure of a successful response. For more details click here.
If you have any questions about authentication or API usage, please contact our support team at [email protected].
To specify the Amazon Category search, you have the following options:
idparameter to search for a specific category by providing its unique identifier.
parent_idparameter to retrieve child categories of a given parent category by specifying the parent category's ID.
search_termparameter to search for categories that contain a specific term within the category hierarchy.
Please note that you cannot use all three parameters together or in pairs because they have different functionalities. The
idparameter is used for a precise category search, the
parent_idparameter is used for exploring child categories, and the
search_termparameter is used for a broader search within the category hierarchy.
