Some markets require payment at time of purchase, some markets require payment at time of order using PayPal or a credit card, and some markets allow either payment at pick up or at time of order.

WHAT ARE SPLIT ITEMS
Split items are items available to the market in wholesale quantities only. However, the wholesale quantity can be "split" by a number of buyers. If exactly the entire wholesale quantity is ordered then each buyer will get the amount they ordered. If more or less than the exact wholesale quantity is ordered then the amount each buyer will actually get may be different than the amount the buyer ordered. When you hover on the order quantity box for a split item, shown with a green background, a popup will appear with the following information: Order Qty: Enter what portion of the total quantity you want to order + : Enter any additional amount you are willing to take. - : Enter any lesser amount you are willing to take.
Additional information about the split may also be shown.
Split status (Filled or Unfilled), split size, and amount remaining to fill the split.
Who is currently participating in the split and the quantity each participant has ordered. Note: By default the splits participant name is "Private." In order for the participant's actual name to appear the participant must set "Splits Privacy" to off in their "My Profile" page.
Because ordered split item quantities may not actually be delivered unless the entire wholesale quantity is sold, at the end of the order cycle the market manager will make a determination as to what quantity of the item ordered will actually be delivered and will notify the buyer.
