GetOrders response not showing shipping time buffer

I am trying to get the shipping date for an order from the GetOrders call, however I cannot see the buffer time specified by the seller in the response. When selling the item, the seller is allowed to specify a dispatch time (1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20, 30 etc). *I have found on the documentation that: High end of delivery time range = DispatchTimeMax + ShippingTimeMax + buffer* How do we get this buffer value? Thanks

Ah yes! The google search function in this forum kind of sucks. Thanks for the help :)

There is no way to get that buffer value. It is a value that takes into account a few different factors, and that algorithm and data is not exposed.

We can get the DispatchTimeMax by calling getEbayDetails, however it returns an array of all DispatchTimeMax values for the site. How would we map the correct DispatchTimeMax value for our specific order?
