From a set of auctions that have just finished I have a bidder who has
won several items and, since I can pack and post these all together, I
want to apply a reduced postage.

I've clicked on the "Send Payment Details" and have the "Send Invoice
to Buyer" screen, with the items listed but if I change the postage
then recalculate it just re applies the total postage for all items.
Tried adding another postage type and recalculating but it just
defaults back to the original total.

How do I go about providing a reduced postage charge that the buyer
can then just pay (via PayPal or cheque etc)?

(I'm just a casual seller, not a trader/dealer)

Thanks, David

Change the postage in the box but do NOT click on re-calculate. Just click
on send the invoice.

How do you apply a reduction for multiple items that are in a free postage
category?

I am asking this on behalf of a friend as I don't sell on Ebay. He states he
can't see a way to give a discount as that was only available to postage
charges.

Why would you want to give a reduction on postage if the postage is
stated as free?
