Does eBay support Gift Service feature and how is it received in the GetItemTransactions

Summary

   Seller can choose to offer Gift Service for the item's shipping to the buyer. To list with Gift Service, you need to specify both GiftServices and GiftIcon properties,  and you can send more than one GiftServices in your listing.

   GetItem always returns Gift Service if the feature (Item.GiftServices and Item.GiftIcon) is defined in the AddItem call.

  Here is the sample request that  lists a Chinese auction that offers two Gift Services feature: 
  1. gift wrapping 
  2. shipment to the gift recipient instead of the buyer.
