A seller has specified  <ApplyShippingDiscount>true</ApplyShippingDiscount> in AddItem call  his/her listings and also set <CombinedDuration>Days_30</CombinedDuration> in his/her shipping discount preference as below before making the AddItem call.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetShippingDiscountProfilesResponse xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
  <Timestamp>2008-06-10T06:47:14.714Z</Timestamp>
  <Ack>Success</Ack>
  <Version>567</Version>
  <Build>e567_core_Bundled_6729563_R1</Build>
  <CurrencyID>USD</CurrencyID>
  <CombinedDuration>Days_30</CombinedDuration>
</GetShippingDiscountProfilesResponse>

However; a buyer can't combine DE items that purchased from this seller. What is the problem?

Summary

  The reason buyer can't combine the DE items purchased from this seller is the combined payment is set to Ineligible as below in seller's shipping preferences page for site 77.  

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetShippingDiscountProfilesRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
  <RequesterCredentials>
    <eBayAuthToken>xxxx</eBayAuthToken>
  </RequesterCredentials>
</GetShippingDiscountProfilesRequest><?
xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

  <GetShippingDiscountProfilesResponse xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
    <Timestamp>2008-06-10T09:01:34.073Z</Timestamp>
  <Ack>Success</Ack>
  <Version>567</Version>
  <Build>e567_intl_Bundled_6722576_R1</Build>
  <CurrencyID>EUR</CurrencyID>
  <CombinedDuration>Ineligible</CombinedDuration>
  </GetShippingDiscountProfilesResponse>

  Shipping discounts for combined purchases are associated with the given site's CurrencyID. As a result, a discount profile can only be applied to a listing if the currency ID of the profile matches the currency ID of the listing.

  For example, this shipping discount setting : <CurrencyID>USD</CurrencyID>  <CombinedDuration>Days_30</CombinedDuration> indicates buyers can send one combined payment for all USD items purchased from this seller within 30 days.

   To enable combined payment for DE items,  sellers need to login to eBay Germany site and go to Home>My eBay>My Account>Preferences >Combined Payments and Shipping Discounts page to set Combined payment discount option or make SetShippingDiscountProfiles API request as below against SiteID 77:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<SetShippingDiscountProfilesRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
  <RequesterCredentials>
    <eBayAuthToken>xxxxx</eBayAuthToken>
  </RequesterCredentials>
  <CombinedDuration>Days_30</CombinedDuration>
  <CurrencyID>EUR</CurrencyID>
  </SetShippingDiscountProfilesRequest>
