Also returns basic shipping cost information. For more information on shipping details, use GetShippingCosts.

To retrieve only one variation, specify the full set of name/value pairs that match all the name-value pairs of one variation.
To retrieve multiple variations (using a wildcard), specify one or more name/value pairs that partially match the desired variations. For example, if the listing contains variations for shirts in different colors and sizes, specify Color as Red (and no other name/value pairs) to retrieve all the red shirts in all sizes (but no other colors).
