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.

Keep reading for steps and pictures on how to make bundles for your Mercari customers.

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

  1. Tell the buyer to cancel the order, and their reason for canceling would be “for bundling” or “buying bundles”, something like that.
  2. Then Mercari would send you a cancellation request, and you’d accept, and the order would be cancelled.
  3. 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:

  1. Send the seller a message that you want to buy several items.
  2. Then send them a message on every item you want in the bundle.
  3. 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.

Things to Remember When Bundling Items For Buyers on Mercari

  1. Make sure to deactivate the listings that were added to the bundle 
  2. Don’t forget to update the listing price with the new total.
  3. Make sure to add the pictures of all the items to the bundle listing. Just in case…
  4. Let your customer know that the shipping cost may go higher because of the weight of the bundle.
  5. But if you offered free shipping from the onset, then you can’t charge the buyer for shipping a bundle.
  6. Make sure to rename the listing with your customer’s name.
  7. Inform your customer that the bundle has been created so that they can pay right away.
  8. Lastly, print your shipping label, pack, and ship the order. VOILA!

I purchased multiple items from the same seller who offered free shipping. She never asked me to cancel my order so that she could create a bundle. She shipped everything together and now it’s not letting me rate each individual item/listing. It will only let me rate one listing. Do you know what I can do as the buyer to be able to rate each item? Mercari doesn’t have a way to contact a customer service agent to get things taken care of right away which is really frustrating.

Hi Melissa. I understand your frustration. Mercari customer service can be annoying. What you can do is rate all the things you bought in that single listing. Then message the seller and let them know the situation. So they'd understand you're not just taking your time to rate, that the problem is from Mercari. I'm sure they'd understand. Also, to avoid this kind of mix-up next time, ask the seller for a bundle. I hope this helps. If you have additional questions about how to bundle on Mercari, please ask. I'll be right here to answer them. Have a great day. xx, Buayifa.

What if someone wants a bundle, but before I even get to create it, another person buys an item that the original person had asked me to bundle? Who should get the item? How should I handle this? Thanks so much! ?

Hi Heather. This is a funny situation. Okay, you can message the first buyer that the item is no longer available, then cancel the order. Then create a bundle for the second customer. The only problem is that after several cancelations, Mercari will flag your store as a seller that always cancels orders. I hope this helps. Thanks for reading my post about How To Bundle on Mercari. xx, Buyaifa.

Does this also apply if the person went ahead and purchased the items? Can i still deactivate items and create new bundle listing?

Hi Nilda, if a buyer has purchased the items, message them to ask if they want a bundle. They would likely say "yes" because they want to receive everything in one box. Then ask them to cancel the orders, so that you can combine the shipping for them. Once the order is canceled, the "sold" sign would disappear. Now you can deactivate the listings, and create a new one with all the purchased items for them. I hope this helps. xx, Buayifa.

Hi, what if a custom buys a bunch of items like 8 then the next morning asks me to bundle? Do I have to cancel them all? As I’ve had warnings for cancelling too much before…

Hi Tiff. If your customer has already bought stuff and now wants a bundle, you can tell them to cancel the order. Then if Mercari asks her why, she would say because she wants to bundle. Just make sure you are with your phone, so that you can accept the cancelation and create the bundle afterwards. That way the cancelation wouldn't be on you, of which it is for good reason. I hope this is clear.
