Fixed price items in your basket will be available to other buyers until you pay for them. Many items on eBay are available in limited quantities, so an item may be sold out before you complete checkout. However, items that you won, either by auction or Best Offer, are reserved for you.
Why are auction or Best Offer items in my shopping basket?
Some items will appear in your shopping basket because you've committed to buy them, such as items won by auction or because the seller accepted your Best Offer. These items will be saved in your basket until you pay for them.
Where can I see the items I'm bidding on?
You can see your active auctions at any time in My eBay. Only auctions that you've won will show up in your basket.
If I buy from different sellers, do I need to pay each one separately?
You can pay for your purchases with a single payment provided all sellers accept your payment method. However, if you've purchased items from sellers who have different payment requirements, you may have to check out more than once.
Can I pay for items from more than one seller or different types of transactions in one payment?
If items from different sellers in your shopping basket all accept PayPal, you can pay for all the items in your shopping basket with a single payment. You can also pay for different types of transactions (won Auction-style listings, Fixed Price and Best Offer items) all at the same time.
