International shipping problems about some countries

I have a problem with AddFixedPriceItem shipping locations. I tested several combination. It looks like Ebay API does not accept some of countries from UK. For example France (FR). I choose "EuropeanUnion", it is working and France is available in the list. But If I choose "FR" only with special delivery price, system responding error. I haven't fixed delivery rate to all European Union. I checked Shipping Excluded Locations table, there is no restriction. But GetEbayDetail shows France is in Exclude Shipping Location. Dou you have any idea ? You can read below XML details. Thanks a lot. Gurbuz Sanatci This is my shipping section in XML file and this is working: <DispatchTimeMax>2</DispatchTimeMax> <PostalCode>SW1A 2AA</PostalCode> <ShippingDetails> <ShippingType>Flat</ShippingType>

Hi, I've notice a few things that are wrong in your AddFixedPriceItem request. You have specified 10 *InternationalShippingServiceOption* elements. Sadly eBay will only allow you to list with a [maximum of 5]( http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/XML/docs/Reference/eBay/AddItem.html#Request.Item.ShippingDetails.InternationalShippingServiceOption). The *ShippingServicePriority* for your international options begins at 2. Because they are international you can start the count at 1 as they are separate from the domestic services. I.e. You can have three domestic services with the priorities 1,2 and 3 in addition to four international services with the priorities of 1,2,3 and 4. Some of your values for *ShipToLocation*, such as *NL* and *CZ*, are not valid for the UK site. To get the correct values you need to call *GeteBayDetails* and set *DetailName* in the request to *ShippingLocationDetails*. In the response iterate through each *ShippingLocationDetails* element and store the value for each *[ShippingLocation]( http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/XML/docs/Reference/ebay/GeteBayDetails.html#Response.ShippingLocationDetails.ShippingLocation)* element. I've include a list of valid values below. Using any other value in the *[ShipToLocation]( http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/XML/docs/Reference/ebay/AddItem.html#Request.Item.ShippingDetails.InternationalShippingServiceOption.ShipToLocation)* element will result in an error. - **Americas** (N. and S. America) - **Asia** (Asia) - **AU** (Australia) - **CA** (Canada) - **EuropeanUnion** (European Union) - **IE** (Ireland) - **US** (United States) - **Worldwide** (Worldwide) - **DE** (Germany) - **FR** (France) - **Europe** (Europe) - **JP** (Japan) Hope this helps. Kind Regards, David

Thanks a lot, you provided very informative response. Ebay's motto for sellers looks like "limiting your business" :) Ok, I did not find any logical explanation about why FR is ok but IT is not for UK shops. Now decision time, which countries less profitable than others. Best Regards, Gurbuz
