Depends if you buy them all from the same seller. If you did, then they'd probably deliver them all together.

No - you'd usually pay full postage for each item. Because obviously if you buy ten books its going to cost the seller a lot more in postage than one book would.

Although some sellers offer price/delivery reductions for each additional item you order from them. They'll say on the listing if they do this.

best option is to just message them asking to discount the p+p if you were to buy loads of them..

besides it'll only cost me 20p plus the delivery, but it says the delivery's 2.50 so would it work out like 2.50 x 20p??

yeah so you'll end up paying £50.70.

I'd strongly advise you contact the seller before buying that many, they could take it down to under £15 altogether.

If you contact them and they approve it they should invoice you a different price. Don't do anything for now, just wait for their reply, and if you're confused ask them to explain what they're doing.

Its an auction site, you don't normally have a "basket" as such. Read the listing and see what it says about delivery. If they are different sellers you will have to pay the full P+P for each book. If it is the same seller you may be able to get a discount as the previous poster said, by contacting the seller before bidding on anything.

Actually yes you do, on eBay if you buy an item now compared to an actual bidding auction then you have the option to 'add the item to your basket'.

--
OP email the guy for discounted shipping if your buying so many.
