Thanks mate, what do you think is the best thing to do? I've e-mailed the seller, but assuming this problem cannot be resolved in a suitable ammount of time, should I cancel the item?

Thanks again

It's only been a few hours. perhaps i'm being a bit cautious. only the seller only joined ebay on 1st sept and had a feedback rating of 0.

Whatever you do,don't ask them for mailing in payment by cheque etc,I be wondering whats going on with their Paypal account for you not to be able to send in a payment.

They may need to verify their account or something else as simple as that.
Have you been in contact with the seller since you won the widget?

I see the problem, or at least I think I do.
Your seller is a 'newbie', she joined ebay on the 1st September and I bet she hasn't sorted out her Paypal account properly. I'd give it until after Tea tonight because she has two items finishing in just over 5 hours.
You could phone her if you haven't heard anything by the Morning:-
Put the item number in [COLOR=blue]]this[/COLOR] to get her contact details. She will also get yours.

It's not a scammer, just an inexperienced ebayer.

Bloody Hell, my ebay HELP link does not work. Very clever, NOT.
