I have looked through the API Retail Documentation and I can't seem to find an ENDPOINT for creating the Item brands or a field to set an item to a brand using the API Item ENDPOINT.

    Hey @pdispirit,

    Brands on the Retail UI is Category so either you can specify a categoryID or create a Category Object upon Item creation.

    Hi @SamuelDevos ,

    Thankyou for your response.

    I have used this manufacturerID. but it needs the id value but i want to pass the string. If we add brands in lighspeed the id will be changed. So i need to sync the exact field.

    For example : I have brand Specailized Brand in Lightspeed i need to sync without id.
