    It's just like a regular cheque - so don't send the item until it's cleared.
    After that it's fine.

    dont send till it clears,you will get an email telling you it has cleared....downside it it can take up to 14 days ..ish ............it should have an approx clearing date on your paypal page,

    they are usually bang on with there dates.

    Fasted mine cleared was 9 days....u might want to email the buyer too as often they don't even know they've paid that way:thumbsup:

    or at least the day after in my case. I hate the things.

    echeques are the work of the devil, FACT.

    email the seller as it might be that their card on file has expired.

    Just say

    yeah i hate them too and wont except them so if i recieve one i send the payment right back to them or in some cases when it hasnt let me send it back to them i have made them wait for it to clear and then refunded.

    I was a bit miffed when i first got one... but i waited till it cleared and all went through fine.

    I m not sure if you can cancel them(i assume you can somehow)but since the buyer has paid that way all you can do is mail him letting him know youll post when its cleared(just making sure he knows its echeque),then its really up to them to offer another method.
