Freight Freight shipping model. Available only for US domestic shipping. The cost of shipping is automatically determined by an affiliated third party, FreightQuote.com, based on the item location (postal code).

Note: This shipping type cannot be set via API, but it is automatically set by eBay when a buyer selects the FreightQuote.com option on the US eBay website.

For details about types of freight shipping that you can specify via API, see Specifying Freight Shipping in the eBay Features Guide.
FreightFlat Freight shipping model. Available only for the US, UK, AU, CA and CAFR sites, and only for domestic shipping. FreightFlat applies to shipping with carriers that are not affiliated with eBay. It is negotiated freight, not a flat rate. Sellers negotiate the shipping cost with their chosen carrier and the buyer before completing the sale. FreightFlat shipping may be used when calculated shipping cannot be used due to the greater weight of the item.

For details about freight shipping, see Specifying Freight Shipping in the eBay Features Guide.
NotSpecified The seller did not specify the shipping type.
