How to merge and un-merge orders

Sometimes one customer will place two orders from eBay within a short period, incurring two lots of packing and shipping costs.

Wouldn't it be nice if these orders could be automatically combined if they were heading to the same address, saving you money on shipping and effort?

Using Zenstores they can! Our clever auto-merge system will automatically check the address of all new orders and give you the option to merge them together, all in a single click. If you need to manually merge orders, this is also possible in Zenstores.

Here is a step by step guide on how to use auto-merge and un-merge orders.
