I can see half orders in my half account Sales page (
But when I make the GetOrders call using <ListingType>Half</ListingType> I get back 0 orders.
What is going on?

Detailed Description

Orders on half have different enumeration values for the OrderStatus of an Order than the values used for eBay orders.

"Inactive" is NOT an acceptable value for OrderStatus for half orders (although "Inactive" is acceptable for eBay orders).
So if you make a GetOrders call using <ListingType>Half</ListingType>, with <OrderStatus>ALL</OrderStatus>
you may get back 0 orders. This is the expected behavior.

Here is the list of order status applicable values :

For ebay orders:
•     Active
•     Completed
•     Inactive
•     Cancelled
•     All

Half orders:
•     Active
•     Completed
•     Cancelled
•     Shipped

Note : For orders, you should call the API for each order status type seperately.

Sample : Getting "Shipped" Orders
Include <OrderStatus>Shipped</OrderStatus> in the request.
Here is an example of a GetOrders call used to get "Shipped" orders:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetOrdersRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
