Why doesn't GetSellingManagerSoldListings return the new format Order ID?

Not returning the Order ID makes it harder to get more details of the order. It only seems to return the Record Number. Also a request: Could there also be an option to __GetSellingManagerSoldListings__ to return the complete Shipping Address? At the moment, I have to match the orders from __GetOrders__ with those from __GetSellingManagerSoldListings__ to generate shipping address labels, which has to be done using the sales record number, not the order ID. It's pretty ugly.

Hi @brandport , We believe that 'GetSellingManagerSoldListings' returns the complete Shipping Address based on sales record number. REF: [SaleRecord.ShippingAddress][1] If not this could you please elaborate what else you are looking for?

__GetSellingManagerSoldListings__ only returns the Name & PostalCode fields of the ShippingAddress, not the full address. This is also what the documentation you refer to says. Also, could it please also return the Order ID? That would make it much more useful.

Hi @brandport, Since you want Order ID and full address you can try 'GetSellerTransaction' of Trading API, we believe this will be helpful!!

We were using __GetOrders__, which __does__ return the full address, and the Order ID. But it now has this bug that the ShippedTime is not returned for multi-line orders, and we are no longer able to use it to find the paid orders that are ready to ship. That is why we changed over to use __GetSellingManagerSoldListings__ - at least it correctly lists the orders that are not yet sent. I think that __GetSellerTransactions__ has the same bug as __GetOrders__ , so using it instead is no good. Anyway, it would be so much simpler if __GetSellingManagerSoldListings__ returned the full address and the OrderID. That way we could make 1 API call to get all the information we need to produce address labels and an inventory pick list for unsent orders.
