How can I find out if a buyer has selected an expedited shipping service?

Detailed Description

Depending on the Transaction Platform, you can find out if the Shipping Service is expedited. 

If the transaction platform is eBay, you can look at the boolean value of the field ShippingServiceSelected.ExpeditedService returned by the transaction calls like GetSellerTransactions / GetOrders.  If the value is true, it is expedited.

ExpeditedService is not returned for Half.com transactions and you need to look at the Shipping Service returned in GetOrders to determine if it is expedited. At the time of writing this article, these are the mappings for Half.com transactions in GetOrders response:

Transaction Platform:  Half.com

OrderArray.Order.ShippingServiceSelected.ShippingService Shipping Service Selected on Half.com
USPSMedia >Media Mail
ShippingMethodStandard >Expedited

Version Info

The code example above was based on the versions specified below:

API Schema Version 513
