Listing on eBay Canada from UK, ShippingServiceCodeType Issue

We're UK based and are trying to list our products on eBay Canada. We've run into a problem that we cant find the correct ShippingServiceCodeType. The services codes we are after are for "Standard Shipping from outside Canada" and "Expedited Shipping from outside Canada" as below image. But we cant find values for these in the API Doc: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/XML/docs/reference/ebay/types/ShippingServiceCodeType.html We've tried several of the possible values there but with no luck, I hope we aren't missing something simple. We have already listed our items on eBay US the same way without any problems. Thanks ![Canada Shipping]( http://neotrims.com/images/eBay%20Canada%20Shipping%20Issue.png)

The two values that you need for adding an item are:

  • CA_StandardShippingfromoutsideCanada
  • CA_ExpeditedShippingfromoutsideCanada

As the documentation for ShippingServiceCodeType is out of date you need to use the API to get the correct values.

  1. Call GeteBayDetails with the DetailName field set to ShippingServiceDetails. Ensure that you send this request to the site that you are listing on.
  2. Iterate through each ShippingServiceDetails element in the response.
  3. For each ShippingServiceDetails element check that the ValidForSellingFlow field is true as this means you can use the shipping service in your AddItem calls.
  4. Read the value of the ShippingService field. This value will be what you can pass via the AddItem call.
