Shipping label references (lack thereof)

The new Finances API call 'get_transactions' lets you get the amount and date of charges for pre-paid return labels. However, unlike for transaction type 'NON_SALE_CHARGE', transaction type 'SHIPPING_LABEL' doesn't have any references to an item/listing number/order etc, so I can't allocate the cost to the correct item.


It may be that because this order happened before we moved to Managed Payments there is no transaction/order number to reference against, and later shipping_label entries will have a reference, but the eBay 'transaction' webpage can show what item the charge was against, so why can't the API?

Did anyone find a solution to this problem? I'm having the same issue. There is literally no way to associate a shipping label transaction to an order with APIs.

And while I'm moaning about that, why does NON_SALE_CHARGE have item references for an Ad Fee have references for every item on the sales order instead of just the relevant item, making it difficult to identify the relevant item?
