Shipping Type is not supported

Hi,

I'm pretty new to eBay API, I'm getting the following error:

 

'Shipping service Royal Mail 1st Class Standard(301) is not available. Shipping Type is not supported by this site.'

 

When I call either VerifyAddFixedPriceItemCall or AddFixedPriceItemCall. I'm setting the site code to UK (Site = SiteCodeType.UK) but to no avail. the ApiServerUrl is set to https://api.sandbox.ebay.com/wsapi, is there a UK equivalent?

 

Any help gratefully received,

Thanks.

Hi,

Specifying the Target Site

The eBay site you specify in your requests affects the business logic and validation rules that are applied to the request. For example, the eBay US site and eBay Germany site follow different rules due to differences between US and EU law, buyer behavior, and other factors.

For a list of valid site names and IDs, call GeteBayDetails or see the SiteCodeType documentation.

Site IDs

http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/XML/docs/Reference/eBay/types/SiteCodeType.html

Where to Specify the Target Site (XML and SOAP)

For some requests, you need to specify the site twice:


  • (All requests) Use the numeric site ID to route the request to the correct site (see Routing the Request (Gateway URLs)). This is usually the site that the item is listed on or that the user is registered on (depending on the purpose of the call).


  • To route the request in the XML API, specify the numeric ID of the target site in the X-EBAY-API-SITEID HTTP header.


  • To route the request in the SOAP API, specify the numeric ID of the target site in the URL.


  • (Some requests) Use the site name (see SiteCodeType) in the body of the request as appropriate for the type of call you're using.


For example, in AddItem, specify the target site by using the Item.Site input field. The site you specify for the item should match the site you specify in the HTTP header or URL.

 

Best Regards,
