API :shippingInfo->shippingType=NotSpecified - shipToLocations=EuropeanUnion | thus | shipping price is specified on eBay shop

Hello, I'm trying to understand why some shipping prices are not returned by finding API thus shipping price should be read on eBay Shop Product page. I read this : http://developer.ebay.com/Devzone/finding/CallRef/types/ShippingInfo.html And see that if the seller doesn'specify a shipping type, then, the over fields are not available. I get this in a JSON response : [shippingInfo] => Array ([0] => stdClass Object([shippingType] => Array([0] => NotSpecified)[shipToLocations] => Array([0] => EuropeanUnion))) productID is 231481644230 Call is findItemsAdvanced If I go there : http://www.ebay.fr/itm/Sufix-Tritanium-Clear-0-35mm-8-2Kg-1100m-Monofile-Schnur-Karpfen-Salzwasser-/231481644230?_trksid=p2054897.l4275 I have a price for shipping, on eBay.fr, it, es ... Should it be my API Call, or is there something wrong with seller and product shipping specification (on the product page, Service is call "Standard Int'l Versand") Greatings, Eric

Hello, productID is 231481644230 I have try it : set globalId to EBAY-DE, globalId=EBAY-DE. with global ID set to EBAY-DE, I've the shipping price, but : 1. Item url send visitor to ebay.de 2. shipping price is for Deutschland : 3,95 euros (to France it's 18,95 euros) So it's not the solution as I can't for example send french visitor to eBay DE. I think it's a bug or a missconception (a big one if you consider usability). Expected result : When shipping is set for globalid eBay country shop, and item is shippable to this globalid eBay country shop (AvailableTo), findItemsAdvanced return shipping price for globalid set in API call and AvailableTo country Actual result : return 'NotSpecified" thus shipping price and countries are set by seller If I remember, this was working, 7 years ago with FindItemsAdvanced. I'm sure this has been check and recheck when launching the app. It's a really big problem for accuracy and app user experience How to send a request to API Dev ? And check. Greatings, Eric

When removing availableTo from call : 1. a lot of items available to a country are disapearing (most with shipping price bug) 2. bug on "free shipping not free" still there. one itemID example : 361193370357 the 2 point seems to be : "if free shipping is set for original country, API always return a free shipping, thus it is not for foreign country".

Looks like it's related to the global ID and AvailableTo. Try setting globalId=EBAY-DE. When you set AvailableTo, the API ignores the global ID and returns worldwide items, This is apparently confusing the shipping calculations. https://forums.developer.ebay.com/questions/4857/finditemsadvanced-returns-worldwide-listings-when.html
