    i normally pay right away when i win anything, did you say anything like payment must be made within 3days, as maybe there waiting for some money to go into the bank or something.

    You can click the box on the listing page to require immediate payment on buy it now listings then they have to pay straight away. Im getting fed up with ebay. Recently have sold a few things and ive had people taking literally weeks to pay, someone winning, leaving it 2 weeks then emailing to say they cant afford to pay, People winning then emailing saying they will pay me in 2 weeks time......... Its really bloomin annoying. Not one has won and paid straight away - or even in a reasonable length of time

    Quite common for buyers not to pay up to 4 days later, either send them an invoice or e-mail. When listing if you want paid within 24 hours you will need to state this, or you could look at it, that it gives you more time to post.

    Here this should help you, what you need is to set your payment option to ]immediate payment

    immediate payment is only for business sellers, which is good if you are one.

    sometimes people might not have the funds straight away but want to make sure they have the item, i always wait about 4 days then send a friendly email, if no communication open a non paying case after 7 days. I think most people, unless stated, expect to have up to 7 days after the listing has ended to pay.i think you can do something where u when on a buy it now the buyer has to pay immediately, but the buyer will be informed before bdding so if they havnt got the funds immediately they know not to bother bidding/buy it now, otherwise u could put please pay within x amount of days otherwise i will relist in the description.

    works with any ebay Buyitnow sales, but your paypal account does need to be a Premier or business account. If you sell regularly or a fair few items Paypal make you upgrade to premier anyway as it allows you to receive more payments by credit card

    I snipe a lot if I know I will be out/asleep then pay when I get to a pc, within 24 hours. Does not mean I am a crap buyer, if I spot something I want I set a snipe if I won't be around, it also pushes the item price up Lots do it..............

    I agree. Ebay is starting to become like the wild wild west lately...Lots of shysters, con artists and swindlers...Not happy with Ebay atm.
