The client could create a ZIP Archive with the files and then encrypt that as a 
single file. Kleopatra has no built in support for ZIP + Encrypt.

FWIW Kleopatra would have automatically chosen a filename like archive.tar.gpg 
so your client must have manually changed that to have some kind of zip 

On the other hand you could extend your process to also accept tarballs ;-)
