Amazon Apparel Search Categories

I looked over the Search Categories and noticed that Clothing and Accessories have nothing related to categorizing or selecting by Size or Color. Does anyone know if under the current API such selections can be made in-app without forcing the user to go to the amazon site. Can specific items of certain color and size selection be sold directly inside the app? Would I be able to allow users to select the sizes and colors they prefer and send the order specifically for those parameters? Is this built into the API? Message was edited by: Timmuh

Hi Timmuh, Thank you reaching out. Products that are available in different shape and sizes are called variations. You can find product ID of a specific variation of a product on Amazon retail website. You can offer variations of the same products in your app by specifying the product ID of each variation in your app. The Amazon product detail page handles variations. If a product has variations, users will be able to find and select variations on the Amazon product page. The Amazon Product detail page is presented to the user when you call the purchase(..) API and with IN_APP or DIRECT_WITH_DETAIL purchase experience. You cannot retrieve product variation programmatically through the Mobile Associates API.
