Actual Shipping field not the actual shipping cost

The “Actual Shipping” field and “Shipping Cost” always seems to be the amount quoted in the listing, not what the actual cost was when purchasing the shipping label.

Is this a known issue?


Hi Kevin,

are you referring to the “Order” or to the “Report” mode?

In Order mode you can define the actual shipping cost in the Inspector sidebar. By default the amount of the original shipping cost will be entered there.

Does this answer your question?

i guess it answers my question, i thought GS would/could pull the actual cost of the shipping label from ebay so I wouldn’t have to enter it.


I would love the same thing, since currently I have to enter the actual shipping cost manually after I print the mailing label.

When I searched the forum for an answer to this months ago, I think I found an old thread indicating it was not possible due to the eBay API, but I don’t know if that’s still true.

Please consider adding that feature to GS 8.1 if possible to do so, it would save me a lot of time.
