Update your payment instructions template

Updates your payment instructions template. If you don't have a payment instructions template, it will be created. 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. Note that buyers see the payment instructions as they were at the time of the sale; if you update the template it will only affect new sales.
