Retrieve your payment instructions template

Retrieves your payment instructions template. The payment instructions template affects the behaviour of listings with the SendPaymentInstructions flag set. Specifically if a listing with that flag sells, the buyer will be sent a payment instructions email that contains the text of your payment instructions template and the buyer can view the payment instructions from the Trade Me website, mobile apps or third-party tools.
