Updating your shipping options

You can update your shipping charges after a listing has ended, but only in certain circumstances. 

Shipping charge increases

Once someone’s bought your item, you can’t update the shipping charges from what was originally shown on the listing unless the buyer wants to combine shipping for multiple items paid by PayPal or asks for express delivery and is willing to pay for the service.

If a buyer wants to upgrade their shipping, send them a message asking them not to pay until they receive a new invoice with updated shipping costs.

Then, after agreeing on a new delivery service, send them an invoice including the updated charges. Here’s how:

  1. Go to your Sold - opens in new window or tab items.
  2. From More actions, choose Send invoice.
  3. Enter the new shipping price and select Send.

Before creating your listing, check what other sellers charge for shipping similar items.

Adjusting charges for combined shipping

If a buyer purchases multiple items, offering combined shipping can save you time and money while rewarding the buyer. Read our article on combined shipping
