Can I combine items with different listing types into a single order?

Summary

Yes, items with different listing types bought by the same user from the same seller, can be combined into a single order.   



Detailed Description

For example, if the user buyer1 has bought a Chinese item, a FixedPrice item and a StoresFixedPrice item from seller seller1, all the three items can be combined into a single item. However, if the Shipping Service options offered are not the same, then the Shipping Service & Shipping and handling cost will not displayed on the Review Your Purchases page. 

Consider the example of items listed with the following Shipping Service Options:

Item1:
<ShippingDetails>
  <
ShippingServiceOptions>
    <
ShippingService>ShippingMethodExpress</ShippingService>
    <
ShippingServiceCost currencyID="USD">4.99</ShippingServiceCost>
    <
ShippingServiceAdditionalCost currencyID="USD">0.0</ShippingServiceAdditionalCost>
    <
ShippingServicePriority>1</ShippingServicePriority>
  </
ShippingServiceOptions>
</
ShippingDetails>

Item2:
<ShippingDetails>
  <
ShippingServiceOptions>
    <
ShippingService>UPSGround</ShippingService>
    <
ShippingServiceCost currencyID="USD">2.99</ShippingServiceCost>
    <
ShippingServiceAdditionalCost currencyID="USD">0.0</ShippingServiceAdditionalCost>
    <
ShippingServicePriority>1</ShippingServicePriority>
  </
ShippingServiceOptions>
</
ShippingDetails>

Item3:
<ShippingDetails>
  <
ShippingServiceOptions>
    <
ShippingService>ShippingMethodExpress</ShippingService>
    <
ShippingServiceCost currencyID="USD">4.99</ShippingServiceCost>
    <
ShippingServiceAdditionalCost currencyID="USD">0.0</ShippingServiceAdditionalCost>
    <
ShippingServicePriority>1</ShippingServicePriority>
  </
ShippingServiceOptions>
  <
ShippingServiceOptions>
    <
ShippingService>UPSGround</ShippingService>
    <
ShippingServiceCost currencyID="USD">2.99</ShippingServiceCost>
    <
ShippingServiceAdditionalCost currencyID="USD">0.0</ShippingServiceAdditionalCost>
    <
ShippingServicePriority>2</ShippingServicePriority>
  </
ShippingServiceOptions>
</
ShippingDetails>

This is what will be displayed for the Shipping Service on the Review Your Purchases Page (RYP):

Combination of Items Shipping Service displayed on RYP
Item1, Item3 ShippingMethodExpress
Item2, Item3 UPSGround
Item1, Item2 *
Item1, Item2, Item3 *

* Since there is no common Shipping Service, it does not display any Shipping Service.  The buyer has the option of either requesting the total from the seller or filling in the Shipping an handling cost.
