Container consisting of shipping costs and other details related to a domestic shipping service. An exception to the domestic shipping service rule is seen in the ShippingServiceSelected container returned under the Order and Transaction containers in order and order line item retrieval calls such as GetOrders or GetItemTransactions. In this scenario, the SelectedShippingService container consists of either domestic or international shipping service data, based on the selected service according to the buyer's shipping address.
If one or more international shipping services are provided, the seller must specify at least one domestic shipping service as well.
Note: For GetItemTransactions and GetSellerTransactions, this container does not return accurate shipping service and cost information for multiple line item orders. Use GetOrders instead, and provide the order's combined OrderID to retrieve this information.
A seller offers free shipping by setting FreeShipping to true. This free shipping applies only to the first specified domestic shipping service. (It is ignored if set for any other shipping service.) If the seller has required shipping insurance as part of shipping (the seller set InsuranceOption to Required) and then the seller specified FreeShipping, eBay sets the insurance cost to 0.00. However, if the seller made shipping insurance optional, eBay preserves the cost of shipping insurance; it is up to the buyer whether to buy shipping insurance, regardless of whether the seller specified FreeShipping.

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.

The LocalPickup flag is used by the GetMyEbayBuying and GetMyEbaySelling calls to indicate whether the buyer has selected local pickup as the shipping option or the seller has specified local pickup as the first shipping option. The LocalPickup flag can also be used with other fields to indicate if there is no fee for local pickup. For example, if the LocalPickup flag is used with the ShippingServiceOptions and ShippingServiceCost fields, the seller can indicate that local pickup is an available option and that no is fee charged. This is the equivalent of free shipping.

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. Also applicable to Half.com (for GetOrders).
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingInsuranceCost.
A shipping service option being offered by the seller to ship an item to a buyer. For a list of valid ShippingService values, GeteBayDetails with DetailName set to ShippingServiceDetails. 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.
To view the full list of domestic shipping service options in the response, look for the ShippingServiceDetails.ShippingService fields. Domestic shipping service options will not have a InternationalService=true field, as this indicates that the ShippingService value is an International shipping service option.
For flat and calculated shipping. Also applicable to Half.com (for GetOrders).
If there are two or more services and one is "pickup", "pickup" must not be specified as the first service.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingService.
The cost of shipping each additional item beyond the first item. For input, this is required if the listing is for multiple items. For single-item listings, it should be zero (or is defaulted to zero if not provided). For flat shipping only. Not applicable to Half.com.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingServiceAdditionalCost.
The meaning of this element depends on the call and on whether flat or calculated shipping has been selected. (For example, it could be the cost to ship a single item, the cost to ship all items, or the cost to ship just the first of many items, with ShippingServiceAdditionalCost accounting for the rest.) 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.)
For GetMyeBaySelling, ShippingServiceCost under the SoldList and DeletedFromSoldList containers returns the cost of the domestic leg of a Global Shipping Program shipment (to the international shipping provider's warehouse).
Also applicable to Half.com (for GetOrders).
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingServiceCost.
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 four domestic shipping services (with four ShippingServiceOptions containers), so valid values are 1, 2, 3, and 4. A shipping service with a ShippingServicePriority value of 1 appears at the top. Conversely, a shipping service with a ShippingServicePriority value of 4 appears at the bottom of a list of four shipping service options.
This field is applicable to Flat and Calculated shipping. This field is not applicable to Half.com listings.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ShippingServicePriority.
