WHAT IS THE RELEVANCE OF NONE PAYMENT STRIKE ON EBAY??

Hi All just a quick question.
When selling on ebay what actually is the relevance of a none payment strike on ebay???...... ive had quite a few people that simply win an item then just dont pay or even communicate.
I go through the correct process and eventually they still dont pay then ebay tells me they give them a none payment strike..... but after all the messing about the buyer has caused what actually happens??????..... is it a case of they are allowed say 3 none payment strikes then ebay suspends them for a period of time?
I just would like to know because it seems to me more and more people do it nowadays and its obvious they dont seem to care of the messing around it causes the seller.

Ok so for the first 2 people they do it technically if they dont do it again then nothing happends!!!!.... lets say though they are "serial none payers!!"... if they do it a 3rd time how long are they suspended for??....and how long will the none payment strike last before ebay clears it?
Thanks

I can't answer that question, but it seems that often rather than go through the process, buyers are agreeing to cancel the transaction with the buyer. As the seller cannot leave neg feedback, there is no warning for other sellers. I agree it is happening all too often now.

I had a buyer recently bid on over 40 different items from different sellers, a lot of them filed a dispute and the buyer wasn't banned after 3 strikes. So tbh, I don't think it actually does much!! I'm sick of it. A seller should be able to leave a negative for NPB and neutrals for buyers who pay but have been awkward.

one last week i had was
can you cancel the sale cos i bid for my son and when he got home it wasnt the one he wanted-not even an apology! and i fine when i offer 2nd chance they dont sell, and relist results in less £ the auction is bid upto cos people think there was something wrong with the item or you have shill bid and won the item yourself..the one last week i relisted went for 30% less than last week.

I had a woman buy my one item (new buyer) no response or payment, she had a NPB strike, in the mean time I messaged the other bidder and offered them a second offer once the NPB case was closed, she agreed. So I sent her the offer, I then sent her an email to say that I'd sent the offer. Both have been ignored, and the buyer has been online to leave feedback, so I'm going to re-list it but I doubt I'll get anywhere near the first price (of £8 ). Really annoys me that ebay is allowing buyers to ruin it for the sellers.

The useful thing about non buyer strikes is that you can set buyer restrictions and exclude buyers who have a certain amount of strikes on their accounts from bidding on your items. You can do this for other things such as no Paypal accounts, live in another country that you do not ship to etc

in my experience the non payer strikes mean absolutely nothing, ive had buyers who have had 6+ and still able to sell and bid, ive set my restrictions so anyone with more then 2 cant bid but they still get through

Just how do you know they have got through? The idea is that they shouldn't plus buyers can't get neg FB to say so.

Non paying strikes are useless and meaningless, despite threats of suspension for NPS don't think it deters anyone also does not help you.

The day ebay stopped neg feedback for buyers was a bad day, at least if you see feedback for being a timewaster you can ban them or treat with caution.

Setting restrictions should work but neg feedback should be brought back as a warnign for the seller.

because some take great pride in telling you how many they've got when you file a non payer, this is easily checked on the ebay forums, just ask around and you find out pretty much anything about sellers on there.
I had one a few months ago who bid on one of my items and kept bidding, until he had over 25 bids and there was only 2 other bidders, he won didnt pay, file the NP and after 6 days he replied with I'm not f*ing paying and theres nothing you can do about it, he bragged about scamming sellers with bids like that then not paying, when i told him ebay will give NP strikes he told me he already had 5 and mine would be number 6!
I complained to ebay and they said theres nothing they can do, i just had to add him to my block list
