    No you cannot force them to pay. But you can give them an unpaid 'strike' after 90 days i think. 3 strikes and theyre banned.

    I haven't been paid. What can I do?

    If your buyer doesn't pay you, here's what you need to do:
    Contact your buyer. Like everyone, buyers can have emergencies or computer problems. The buyer may not be able to reply immediately for a number of reasons. If the buyer doesn't reply to your email, you may want to request their contact details and give them a call.

    Send a payment reminder. Send your winning buyer a friendly payment reminder between 3 and 30 days after the listing closes. Learn more.

    Open a case in our Resolution Centre. If you still don’t get a response from the buyer, or if you feel that you won't receive payment, you can open an unpaid item case in our Resolution Centre 7 to 45 days after the sale. Your buyer is notified immediately and given an opportunity to respond. If the buyer doesn’t respond within 7 days, or you’re unable to reach an agreement with the buyer, you can close the case and you’ll automatically receive a credit for your Final Value Fee. Read more about the Resolution Centre and instructions for what to do if a buyer doesn’t pay. To open a new case go to the Resolution Centre and follow the instructions.

    Offer the item for sale again. You can extend a Second Chance Offer to another bidder, or relist the item and you may qualify for a credit on your Insertion Fee.

    Basically you just get to open a Unpaid Item Dispute and claim Fees back. I have opened one now, person has 1700 100% positive feedback but not responded to any emails since winning on 9th May.

    They just get an Unpaid Item Strike....and I think after 2/3 their account is restricted or suspended...not sure

    But you get your fees back and you don't have to force them into anything, no heavies etc

    the worst bit is if they dont pay you, you still have to pay the fees for the original listing this happened to me a few weeks ago someone didnt pay i gae him 3 weeks he said his wife was unwell then he hadnt been paid ect i reported him got the fvf back but not the listing fees, thats annoying

    its a joke, had 2 people not pay just lately.

    It's difficult sometimes to judge though...I wouldn't have thought someone with 1700 100% positive feedback wouldn't pay :thumbsup:

    It words it like that because it wants people to pay and rightly so. But if someone has made a genuine mistake, like I did once, it allows them to leave only a black mark on their ebay record that only admin can see.

    you could take them to the small claims court - if thier details are true of course - hardley worth it
    log a unpaid item dispute and you wont be charged a fee and you'll be able to put back on sale for free (well not free as you have alreadyt paid once)
    You could always have payment immediately by paypal but even then thats not foolproof

    As for making them pay after they have bought something - you cant really its not cost effective unless its for a lot of cash

    just sick with the 98% club (Feedback) and you wont fall off

    Ebay don't make the law, I think you would have an extremely hard time convincing a court a contract had been formed, certainly before any money had been exchanged.
