Ebay API - Shopping API - GetShippingCosts: No HTTPS Support?

I am currently using the GetShippingCosts call from the Shopping API and trying to convert all calls to https but it seems that https is not supported ? I do not want to use the Trading API as from what I have read, it looks like I have to provide an authentication token and its SOAP and XML only - I am getting the shipping costs from requests by the user browser not through the server so the authentication token would be visible in Javascript. Also do not want a user authentication token. Are there any alternatives, maybe I'm missing something ? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Last I checked, Shopping API doesn't support https. It's possible I'm wrong, or maybe they'll upgrade support soon. If you're using client-side Javascript, even *if* the Shopping API supported https, you are still exposing your AppID to the client. That's a bigger risk than a Trading API token (which can be a token for a separate empty eBay user account you have).
