How can I find out if an Item was purchased via BuyItNow from the GetSellerTransactions response?

How can I find out if an Item was purchased via BuyItNow from the GetSellerTransactions response?

In certain cases it is can be said with certainity that an Item was purchased using BIN or won as an Auction item.  Here are the possibilities:

Case1:
---------
If ListingType = StoresFixedPrice or FixedPriceItem
then
PurchaseType:  BuyItNow

Case2:
---------
If ListingType =  Chinese and BuyItNowPrice =  0
then
PurchaseType:  Auction

Case3:
---------
If ListingType = Chinese and BuyItNowPrice >  0 and BuyItNowPrice <> TransactionPrice
then
PurchaseType:  Auction

Case4:
---------
If ListingType =  Chinese and BuyItNowPrice >  0 and BuyItNowPrice = TransactionPrice
then
It is quite likely that the PurchaseType is BuyItNow.  In this case, the only way to find out for sure is to make a call to GetAllBidders and look for the Action tag as the following Knowledge Base article suggests:
