Summary  

   For Calculated Shipping, Shipping costs are automatically calculated based on the buyer's shipping ZIP code or the country. The shipping type for the item in question is set to CalculatedDomesticFlatInternational, hence ShippingServiceCost tag is not returned for the Domestic shipping services in GetItem response.
