Use something like Stamps.com where you can combine a customer's orders. I'm sure other 3rd party providers also allow the same. You're only asking for problems using eBay's shipping. It's a mess. Like everything else it's set up for eBay to profit.

Stamps.com also offers an account free of the monthly fees to all Sellers on Ebay. Just contact them in the morning and they can have you up the same day. i have also found their program much easier to use than Ebays and without constant changes.

I have BEGGED eBay to return the Request Invoice From Seller option for years... ever since the birth of Shopping Cart. Every Excuse In The Book. Major Lost Sales. Makes me sick! I have dozens of Messages from customers... what is eBay afraid of?

Not surprised that eBay is refusing to fix this since they rake off a "Final Value Fee" from shipping. This is an actual THEFT from sellers. What incentive do they have to lower shipping charge? Just Follow the Money - to Devil Wingnut's bank account
