Detailed Description

   This error happens when the buyer's registration site is different with the itme's listing site.
For example, if an item is listed in the eBay Austria and an US or a CA buyer won the auction, the item then need to be shipped to the country other than Austria. A domestic shipping service is not meaningful for this single transaction. The result is the seller must specify an international shipping server when making SendInvoice request.

A seller should make an api call like GetUser to verify buyer's registration site for constructing a correspondent shipping service container for SendInvoice call.
