This enumerated type contains the values that specify the party (seller/buyer) who will be responsible for paying the return shipping cost if an item is returned. One of these values is set by the seller when establishing/setting a return policy for an item.

Note: The GeteBayDetails call returns site-default Return Policy settings. For most categories within a given eBay site, the supported Return Policy options/values are the same, but there a few exceptions. To discover what return shipping 'payee' values that a particular category supports, call GetCategoryFeatures and include DomesticReturnsShipmentPayeeValues and/or InternationalReturnsShipmentPayeeValues as FeatureID values to see the return shipping 'payee' values available for domestic and international returns, respectively.
