How does combined postage discount work?
Combined postage discount can only be applied when the following conditions are true;
1) Your items are all paid for on the same invoice. (when you make a purchase have to wait to pay until you have bought all the items required. ebay will then combine your invoices and send you a new total.)
2) You have more than one eligible item on the invoice. Eligible items have a delivery charge of over £2.
For UK orders your first eligible item is charged at full delivery rate and we minus £2 from each subsequent eligible item.
For International orders the first eligible item is charged at full delivery rate and we minus £3 from each subsequent eligible item.
UK Example 1
You have bought two items, a t-shirt and a hoodie. The delivery charge for the hoodie is £3.99 and the delivery charge for the t-shirt is 99p. Although you have more than one item, you only have one eligible item so combined postage discount cannot be applied.
Total delivery charge = £4.98
UK Example 2
You have bought three items, 2 hoodies and a t-shirt. The delivery charge for the hoodies are £3.99 each and the t-shirt is 99p.
For this order you have two eligible items. The first is charged at full rate, £3.99, and the second at discount rate, £1.99. The t-shirt is not eligible so 99p is added to the total.
Total delivery charge = £6.97
You have bought three t-shirts. The delivery charge for these is £6.75 each. The first is charged at full rate, £6.75, and the second and third at the discount rate, £3.75. All items are eligible for discount.
Total delivery charge = £14.25
