"GetShippingCosts" API returning no data for several listings

Hello everyone, I've been noticing a lot of listings coming through with no Shipping information when the "GetShippingCosts" API is performed by my application. The weird thing is, once I go to the listing URL, I can see that there is shipping information under the "Postage and packaging" table, so in theory the API should return that data as well, right ? Here goes an example: **API CALL:** http://open.api.ebay.com/shopping?callname=GetShippingCosts&responseencoding=JSON≈pid=&DestinationCountryCode=GB&DestinationPostalCode=&ItemID=110401727898&IncludeDetails=true&Version=517 PS: It doesn't matter what "DestinationPostalCode" I set in the request, I keep getting the same response. **RESPONSE:** {"Timestamp":"2016-04-25T21:58:00.970Z","Ack":"Success","Build":"E963_CORE_APILW_17911290_R1","Version":"963","ShippingDetails":{"InsuranceOption":"NotOffered","TaxTable":{"TaxJurisdiction":[]}}} PS2: I noticed the "Version" in the response, then tried updating the field in my request, but my response was pretty much the same, except that I also got the "ExcludeShipToLocation" information, which I guess is some improvement, but still not quite what I was hoping for.. **HTML:** If you go to the [product's URL][1], you'll see that there is information under the "Postage and packaging" table (all you have to do is set the shipping location to UK and w/e postal code you desire). **SUMMARIZING:** I can't really understand how I can find the data on the HTML but not get it from the API. Am I missing something here? Maybe some other API call I should be using ? I'm kind of at a loss here, so any help is greatly appreciated :) Thank you all in advance.
