Problems working with API (GET, POST method with PHP and Wordpress)

I am using wp_remote_post() to post products to a third party site. First I get these products via API from a site called Mercado Libre. But when I carry out the mass publication, the products are published without a name, without a price, and without respecting the parameters provided. They only have the name "Product".

function publish_products_in_woocommerce()

    $respuesta = wp_remote_get('https://api.mercadolibre.com/sites/MLA/search?q=Motorola%20G6', array(
        'headers' => array(
            'Authorization' => 'Bearer APP_USR-2778915669536100-052221-0f3a39361bdcea9bc3de0df8ab619f66-370993848'
    $respuesta = json_decode($respuesta['body'], true);
    foreach ($respuesta['results'] as $value) {
        $product_data = array(
            'name' => $value['title'],
            'status' => 'draft',
            'type' => 'simple',
            'regular_price' => $value['price'],
            'description' => $value['title'],
            'short_description' => $value['title'],
            'categories' => [
                    'id' => $value['category_id'],
            'images' => [
                    'src' => $value['thumbnail']


        $woocommerce_api_ck = 'ck_b2a0f58d07590e8283302eca04fbc1b66a9ff653';
        $woocommerce_api_cs = 'cs_b4d91662590be47416f663fc9f0d1c49f600e394';

        $url = 'http://nuevo.labisbal.com.ar/wp-json/wc/v3/products';

        wp_remote_post('http://nuevo.labisbal.com.ar/wp-json/wc/v3/products', array(
            'headers' => array(

                'Authorization ' => 'Basic ' . base64_encode($woocommerce_api_ck . ':' . $woocommerce_api_cs),

            'body' =>  $ProductToWooCommerce = json_encode($product_data),
            'method' => 'POST',
            'timeout' => 145,
            'blocking' => false,
            'sslverify' => false,
            'stream' => true,
            'data_format' => 'json'

        if (wp_remote_retrieve_response_message($respuesta) === 'Created') {
            echo 'The product  has been created';


It's strange because when I display the json already converted (using json_encode) the data is displayed correctly... (using print_r)
