yeah I saw that cheeky really wanted the money asap thanks for info
these are fine but they take a while to clear. abviously dont send the item until paypal sends you and email saying echeque is cleared coz they can bounce just like a normal cheque.
its usually cos they havent a card on file at paypal so email them and ask? they may be able to sort it and it will clear? they may be unaware why too. Happened to me a few times. Or they can stop the payment and pay BT?

oh i see wondered why the eCheque was used...will email the buyer see what response I get thanks
(Best to let them know...sometimes the customer isnt aware) I always write to them telling them this:

Just a quick note to say..We haven't forgotten your order, the item is still showing as unpaid as it is Paypal Pending.

We will dispatch your goods as soon as payment is released via Paypals side, this maybe due to an eCheque, so please check your account just in case..

Kind regards.
I don't have a credit card so use the eCheque on very rare occasions when i don't have any funds, takes 5-7 days to clear which is a pain for both involved so i avoid most of the time, still it should clear, i usually send a question to the seller asking if they mind before i bid if i am in this situation just so they are aware!
