Using Combined Payments
Combined payments allow buyers to check out once for multiple items from a seller. As a seller, you offer combined payments based on a period of time. It is recommended that you allow buyers to send a combined payment within 30 days. This makes it easier for buyers to check out. Buyers will need to check out separately for any item purchased after the 30 day period.
