I guess you could list them all and people need to then consider their options dependant on postage costs.

I see what you mean but someone may not want 3 items. You are then limiting your market.

Also, if you are allowed to apply a "minimum purchase" then that might potentially exceed the RRP of the items you want to sell.

I don't see why you can't put a minimum amount, but you are still limiting your market either way.
The thread would be a real mess too.

Take a scenario of minimum amount of £25.

The OP sells 3 items which retail for £6 each usually. That is then assuming someone is willing to buy those items as they cannot get hold of them elsewhere.

Those 3 items have an RRP of £18. Is the excess a realistic amount for postage?

Just list the items and then just add 'postage at cost' then the seller never looses out and the more the buyer buys the less postage costs per item will cost.

or just add postage costs to each item, and then put obviously cheaper postage costs the more you buy

The OP has suggested a minimum number of items to be purchased, rather than a minimum price.

I think there have been some good suggestions in this thread, the best being listing postage costs separately and offering reasonable discounts for multiple items.

Ah, I see. I assumed it was the other way around to cover what would be high postage costs for both parties.
