Send payment instructions email
Sends payment instructions to the winner of an auction. This will send an email to the buyer and will make the payment instructions available on the Trade Me website, mobile apps and third-party tools. Payment instructions can only be sent once, and cannot be sent at all if the buyer has already paid via Pay Now. You can check if payment instructions have been sent using the InvoiceId field (in the sold items API) or the PaymentInstructions field (in the listing details API). You can check if the buyer has paid using Pay Now using the IsPayNowPurchase field (in the sold items API) or the HasPaidByCreditCard field (in the listing details API).
