With eBay Guaranteed Delivery, the seller is committing to getting the order to the buyer within three business days.

GuaranteeShipping Field to Start Being Returned in Order Report

A GuaranteeShipping boolean field was added to the WSDL, but this field will not be returned in OrderReport until the feature becomes available to sellers in October.

Once the feature becomes available, and turned on in the API, this field will be returned as true if the seller chose to use eBay's Guarantee Shipping feature at listing time. With eBay's Guarantee Shipping, the seller will never pay more for shipping than what is charged to the buyer. The Guarantee Shipping price will be based on the shipping service option and on the dimensions and weight of the shipping package. Initially, eBay's Guarantee Shipping feature can not be selected with the Add/Revise/Relist API calls, but must be set up through the Web flow.
