Using the eBay shopping basket
Buying with the eBay shopping basket
Adding items to your basket
To add an item from a fixed price listing to your basket, click the Add to basket button in the listing. You can see the items in your basket at any time by clicking the shopping basket icon at the top of most eBay pages.
To remove items you've placed in your eBay shopping basket, click the remove link next to the item you want to remove. If you're not ready to pay for an item but don't want to remove it, you can click the save for later link.
You can add items from the same or different sellers to your basket, and check out and pay for all the items in your basket at once. Each item will show up as a separate purchase with its own item number and the seller's user ID associated with it, exactly as it always has in My eBay. If you add multiple items from the same seller, the seller's items are grouped together in your eBay shopping basket.
P&P discounts are automatically applied if the seller has specified discounts in the listing. If they aren't applied automatically, you can request the P&P amount from the seller by placing your pointer over the item and selecting request total from seller.
You can also check out with selected items and save others for later.
You can also purchase any item in your basket separately. To do this, place your pointer over the item and select pay only this seller.
Note: You can only check out and pay for items from different sellers at the same time if all sellers accept the same payment method. Right now, PayPal is the only method of payment that can be used to buy items using the eBay shopping basket.
Purchasing Best Offer and fixed price items
If you put an item from an auction-style listing in your basket that has the Buy it now option, you can purchase that item immediately. However, if someone else places a bid on that item before you pay for it, the listing will return to an auction-style listing and you'll need to place a bid instead.
Remember that adding a fixed price item to your eBay shopping basket does not remove it from the site. It will remain available for others to purchase until you pay for the item. If you see a message that an item is not available, it may have ended before you purchased it.
Items that can't be added to your eBay shopping basket
Items in a few categories can't be added to the eBay shopping basket:
Selling with the eBay shopping basket
If you sell on eBay, you don't need to do anything to make your listings work with your eBay shopping basket. However, here are a few tips to make it easier for buyers to purchase your items using the basket:
