Let’s dive in!
First Of All, What Does Bundle Mean on Mercari?
Bundling on Mercari is shipping several items a customer buys – at the same time – from your Mercari store; as one purchase.
So instead of the buyer paying the individual shipping on each item, they pay just one.
Mercari bundling is sometimes called combined shipping.
So if a buyer says combine shipping, they are still talking about making a bundle.
Bundling on Mercari is quite different from Poshmark because, on Poshmark, buyers can bundle items from a seller’s closet by themselves.
While on Mercari, the seller always creates bundles for the buyers.

How to bundle on Mercari as a seller
Once a buyer has picked the items they want to bundle, follow the steps below.
- Create a whole new listing or edit and update an existing listing with all the pictures of the items the customer is buying.
- Add the cost of the items and make that the new listing price.
- Don’t forget to subtract the discount. That is if you give reductions on bundles.
- Name the new or updated listing with your buyer’s name. For example, a bundle for Bree.
- Update the shipping cost, if needed, because some bundles are heavy. But, you can ignore it if you offered free shipping.
- Deactivate the listings you added to the bundle so other buyers cannot buy them. Since they are no longer available for sale.
- Next, inform the buyer that you have created the bundle so they can pay for it, and you ship the items.
- Only delete the deactivated listings after your customer receives their package and rates you.
- It is this easy.
- Now, there will be times when a Mercari buyer wants a bundle after making a purchase. Here’s what you can do when that happens.
How to bundle on Mercari after purchase
- Tell the buyer to cancel the order, and their reason for canceling would be “for bundling” or “buying bundles”, something like that.
- Then Mercari would send you a cancellation request, and you’d accept, and the order would be cancelled.
- After that, go ahead and make a bundle for the buyer.
Now I understand you may be worried about cancellations because Mercari usually flags accounts that cancel orders a lot.
But if you’re canceling to make bundles, your account would be flagged.
So either you or your customer can cancel the order for bundle creations.

How to request a bundle on Mercari as a buyer
Some sellers don’t do bundles, but most do.
And the ones that do bundles normally mention that they can combine shipping for you.
So let’s assume this seller says they sell bundles.
To request a bundle as a buyer, here’s what you should do:
- Send the seller a message that you want to buy several items.
- Then send them a message on every item you want in the bundle.
- And maybe ask if you’ll get a discount and wait for their reply.
Once the seller makes the bundle, they’d inform you. Then you can pay for it.
But if you’re not sure if they sell bundles, then send a chat asking if they do and can make one for you.
If they say yes, then do the same thing I mentioned above. Send a simple chat “this” on each item, so they know exactly what you want to buy.
And the seller would combine everything and ship them together.
