Detailed information on Service Types
When offering shipping services, the seller specifies the type of shipping (which determines which tags are used and affects how costs are established for shipping of the item). The options for ShippingType are these:
- Freight and FreightFlat
Flat Shipping Module
Flat rate shipping (or "flat shipping" or Flat Shipping Module) is when the system specifies a fixed shipping rate that the buyer is to pay, regardless of package dimensions or weight, and regardless of distance. You can offer various shipping services to the buyer (for example, USPS, Airmail Parcel Post and UPS Express Plus) and decide how much the buyer would have to pay for each service, regardless of the actual cost of such shipping.
Calculated rate shipping (or "calculated shipping") is when you offer shipping services and request that eBay calculates the shipping cost according to such things as the package's dimensions and weight and the buyer's postal code. You can offer or require insurance, but the insurance cost is determined by the selected shipping service (and is not known until the final sale price is known for the item).
Freight shipping is the shipping of items that are heavier than can be shipped with standard flat or calculated rate service
