VerifyAddFixedPriceItem shows fees being charged when there shouldn't be any?

I have a Basic Store, which I'm planning to upgrade to a higher tier so that I can list more items for free each month, but when I call VerifyAddFixedPriceItem before listing an item on eBay using the API the response shows fees being charged (InsertionFee and ListingFee): stdClass Object ( [Timestamp] => 2015-01-11T19:40:05.368Z [Ack] => Success [Message] => Attention eBay Member:

We noticed that your listing may offer combined shipping discounts to your buyers, and we're writing to tell you about a change that may prevent your buyers from receiving shipping discounts via a combined invoice.

As announced this spring, to reduce unpaid items eligible fixed price and auction-style listings purchased with Buy It Now will remain for sale unless the buyer pays right away. That means buyers must first add items to their eBay Shopping Cart to purchase multiple items with a single payment.

To continue to offer shipping discounts to your buyers, we encourage you to set up your own shipping promotions using the combined shipping discounts tool in My eBay. Once your shipping promotions are set up, be sure to apply them when you list or revise your items. Your shipping discounts will be applied automatically and immediately once your buyers add eligible items to their shopping carts.

I've only listed a few items this month (through the website, none through the API yet), so I should have lots of free listings.

Hi, Please dont rely on the charges that you see in the VerifyAddItem API Call response as they may not be right. Here is the knowledge base article that tells that same: https://ebaydts.com/eBayKBDetails?KBid=1148 Cheers!!!!
