Is there a way to send an Offer to a seller for multiple items in my cart all from a single action, or do I have to send an offer for each individual item I want?

This has been on the drawing board for many years now, I just never managed to find the time to finish the coding.

But I am aware that a bundle offer is the natural way instead of submitting offers one at a time and letting the seller cherry pick.

Only work-around right now is to contact the seller ahead and indicate that it's a all-or-nothing type of bundle of offers.

While it would be nice, they don't have this on any other sites to my knowledge.

So you may be the leader in this???

It's the same code that would allow 2 things:

  1. Let a seller create a bundle (let's say a Star Trilogy, a full anime TV series or a set of Criterion releases, etc.) so that they can only be sold together.
    Right now the work-around is to describe "This set is for the LDs X, Y and Z" with a high price that looks weird until you realize this is a bundle/lot offer.
    And then I need to break down the lots manually to re-assign the prices per LDs.
  2. Let a buyer put several titles from the same shop in cart and then make a global offer (let's say -20%) on this lot. Seller can still accept/refuse/counter-offer, but on the whole lot.

It seems more natural but it also creates many new special cases/situations ... and thus a lot more coding/testing.
It would only apply to LDs, since other formats are selling next to 0 here, this extra coding is not worth it.

A simple best offer is already not that trivial:
