The GetAdditionalSellerInputs operation returns a list of additional
inputs that are required from the seller for purchasing shipping for some shipping
services. Calling GetAdditionalSellerInputs is only required for
shipment services that require additional seller inputs.
To identify shipping services that require additional seller inputs, examine the
ShippingService elements that are returned by the GetEligibleShippingServices operation. When
RequiresAdditionalSellerInputs=true is included
in a ShippingService element, that shipment service requires
additional seller inputs. Call the GetAdditionalSellerInputs operation
to find out which additional seller inputs are required. When
RequiresAdditionalSellerInputs=false is included
in a ShippingService element, that shipment service offer does not
require additional seller inputs. You can skip the
GetAdditionalSellerInputs operation and call the CreateShipment operation to create your shipment.
The GetAdditionalSellerInputs operation also includes syntax
requirements for the additional input that you get from sellers, and returns saved values
that you previously provided to Amazon. For definitions, see Merchant Fulfillment API.
This operation is only available in the Canada, US, Mexico, Spain, UK, France,
Germany, Italy, and India marketplaces.
This operation has a maximum request quota of 10 and a restore
rate of five requests every second. For definitions of throttling
terminology and for a complete explanation of throttling, see Throttling: Limits to how often you can submit requests in the Amazon MWS Developer Guide.
