Fields



ImportCharge ( AmountType (double) ) [0..1]
The total cost of customs and taxes for the international leg of an order shipped using the Global Shipping Program. This amount is calculated and supplied for each item by the international shipping provider when a buyer views the item properties.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ImportCharge.

ShippingInsuranceCost ( AmountType (double) ) [0..1]
The insurance cost associated with shipping a single item with this shipping service. Exception: for GetItemShipping, this is proportional to QuantitySold. If the item has not yet been sold, insurance information cannot be calculated and the value is 0.00. For calculated shipping only.

Valid only on the following sites: AU, FR, and IT
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingInsuranceCost.

ShippingService ( token ) [0..1]
An international shipping service being offered by the seller to ship an item to a buyer. For a list of valid values, call GeteBayDetails with DetailName set to ShippingServiceDetails.

To view the full list of International shipping service options in the response, look for the ShippingService fields in the ShippingServiceDetails containers that contain a InternationalService = true field, as this indicates that the ShippingService value is an International shipping service option.

The ShippingServiceDetails.ValidForSellingFlow flag must also be present. Otherwise, that particular shipping service option is no longer valid and cannot be offered to buyers through a listing.

For flat and calculated shipping.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingService.

ShippingServiceAdditionalCost ( AmountType (double) ) [0..1]
The cost of shipping each additional item if the same buyer purchases multiple quantity of the same line item. This field is required when creating a multiple-quantity, fixed-price listing. Generally, the seller will give the buyer a shipping discount if that buyer purchases multiple quantity of the item, so this value should usually be less than the value set for ShippingServiceCost.

The value of this field can even be set to 0 if the seller wants to encourage buyers to buy multiple quantity of the item, or it could be that the seller can fit multiple quantities of the line item in a single shipping package, so the seller is just passing this shipping savings onto the buyer. This field is not applicable for single-quantity listings.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingServiceAdditionalCost.

ShippingServiceCost ( AmountType (double) ) [0..1]
The base cost of shipping the item using the shipping service specified in the ShippingService field. In the case of a multiple-quantity, fixed-price listing, the ShippingServiceAdditionalCost field shows the cost to ship each additional item if the buyer purchases multiple quantity of the same line item.

When returned by GetItemShipping, it includes the packaging and handling cost. For flat and calculated shipping.

If a shipping service has been specified (even LocalPickup), GetItem returns the shipping service cost, even if the cost is zero. Otherwise, cost is not returned.

If this is for calculated shipping for a listing that has not yet ended, note that the cost cannot be determined until the listing has ended and the buyer has specified a postal code.

For GetItemShipping, promotional shipping savings is reflected in the cost, if applicable. If the promotional shipping option is lower than other shipping services being offered, the savings is reflected in the returned shipping cost. The shipping service named Promotional Shipping Service (or whatever is the localized name for it) is included among the shipping services. If the promotional shipping cost is lower than the cost of other shipping services being offered, it is presented first in the list. (The LOWEST shipping service cost is always presented first, regardless of whether there is promotional shipping.)
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingServiceCost.

ShippingServiceCutOffTime ( dateTime ) [0..1]
The last time of day that an order using the specified shipping service will be accepted by the seller. The cut off time applies and is returned only when the ShippingService field contains the name of a qualifying time-sensitive shipping service, such as eBayNowImmediateDelivery.

The cut off time is set by eBay and determined in part by the policies and locations of the seller and the shipping carrier.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingServiceCutOffTime.

ShippingServicePriority ( int ) [0..1]
This integer value controls the order (relative to other shipping services) in which the corresponding ShippingService will appear in the View Item and Checkout page. Sellers can specify up to five international shipping services (with five InternationalShippingServiceOption containers), so valid values are 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. A shipping service with a ShippingServicePriority value of 1 appears at the top. Conversely, a shipping service with a ShippingServicePriority value of 5 appears at the bottom of a list of five shipping service options. If the Global Shipping Program is enabled on the listing for international shipping, only four additional shipping services may be specified.

This field is applicable to Flat and Calculated shipping.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingServicePriority.

ShipToLocation ( string ) [0..*]
An international location or region to where the item seller will ship the item.

Use GeteBayDetails with DetailName set to ShippingLocationDetails to determine which locations are valid per site. In the GeteBayDetails response, look for the ShippingLocationDetails.ShippingLocation fields.

For the AddItem family of calls, this field is required if any international shipping service is specified.

For GetOrders, GetOrderTransactions, and GetItemTransactions only: If using Trading WSDL Version 1019 or above, ShipToLocation fields will only be returned to the buyer or seller, and no longer returned at all to third parties. If using a Trading WSDL older than Version 1019, ShipToLocation fields are only returned to the buyer or seller, and a string value of Unavailable will be returned to all third parties.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShipToLocation.
