Fields

DomesticRateTable ( string ) [0..1]
On input, this field specifies which domestic shipping rate table to apply to a listing. Domestic rate tables can be used only for items listed on the eBay US, UK, DE, AU and Motors Parts and Accessories websites.

Currently, sellers can configure only one domestic shipping rate table, so set DomesticRateTable = Default to apply that table. The rates assigned to the various domestic regions are applied depending on the location of the buyer. If only one shipping service category and rate has been set for a given domestic region in the domestic rate table, buyers in that region will see only one shipping cost. If several service levels and rates are set up in the domestic shipping rate table for a given domestic region, buyers in that region will see the different shipping levels and rates and can choose one of them.

If you are modifying or relisting an item (using the Revise or Relist family of calls), you can delete the existing rate table setting applied to the listing by using the empty tag: <DomesticRateTable />

This field is returned from the GetItem family of calls only for the seller who listed the item.

You can find more information about using shipping rate tables in the Shipping chapter of the Trading API User's Guide.
