GetFulfillmentPreview is randomly not returning "Estimated Rates" its supposed to return rates for each of the shipping methods that are available for the marketplace and destination.

However, lately it randomly just doesn't return rates, and the "EstimatedFess" section of the returned XML is blank.. Urghhh, this is bad..

I even tried in the MWS sandbox and getting the same response. What in the world to do? I've submitted a support ticket, and waiting a response..

This is what one speed looks like when it DOES return a rate: You can see the EstimatedFees node..

Day 2
Let's see how this goes. I submitted the case, and explained in detail what was happening with a full xml responses. Amazon then asked for the details, again. I supplied the details again, with the same full XML request and response from the Amazon MWS sandbox.

I wonder if/when Amazon determines that this is in fact a bug.
