  1. I'm not happy at all. In all of my auctions I state that payment is due within 48 hours or I will relist. Well, my winning bidder emailed me two days after she won to let me know that she cannot pay until Friday. Friday will be 7 days. She told me that she does not get her paycheck until Friday, but will pay for the dress. I do not think this is fair to me have to wait. Should I open a nonpaid dispute today, since it's been 5 days already or should I give her until Friday? BTW this buyer is from Australia and I just hope I don't have any problems with an International buyer.
     
  2. I wouldn't open a non-pay dispute. Perhaps you can do a cancellation, stating your reason.
     
  3. That's a good idea. I will email her this morning to see if she would be willing to do a cancellation. Thank you
     
  4. you have to allow 7 days per ebay rules. It sucks yes, but its the policy
     
  5. oh, crap! I always forget about that. It's a double edge sword, because buyers state when the item must be paid for (ie within 48 hours, 3 day, etc), but eBay has 7 days as a general rule... very confusing I say..
     
  6. ^^ I don't think this is true anymore. Didn't eBay change this so buyers only have to wait four days now?
     
  7. I just had the same thing happen. The buyer won 3 of my auctions on Sept. 30th and didn't respond to my invoices until I opened a NPD that's when she told me that she couldn't pay until Oct 16th!!!:nuts: I need to get of rid the dolls so I agreed but told her that if I didn't receive payment on the 16th I would continue with the case. Crossing my fingers for a payment. oh and she has 1 FB...should have been a sign
     

  8. OMG I love your avatar!!! That's what I thought too. I thought we could open a dispute on the 4th day and then the buyer has 3 to 4 more days to pay.
     

  9. I'm so sorry you are going through this too. I hope she pays you on the 16th. I hope you did not close your NPD. Keep it open in case she doesn't pay. I just sent my buyer an email to confirm that she will be paying on Friday. I will also open a NPD on Friday if she doesn't pay. I just hope I can still open one after 7 days.
     
  10. yeah 4 plus 3 equals 7. I agree is annoying i always pay within 24 hours if not right after it ends. I would hate to make someone wait
     
  11. it is most def. still open :biggrin:
     
  12. october 16th? Good grief, that's wayyy more than 7 days - I hope she pays.
     

  13. I always pay right after the auction ends too. Honestly, I don't know why this lady bid on my item when she does not have the money to pay. She will not get her paycheck until Friday. I really don't feel this is fair to me. I would never bid on something if I could not have the money to pay for it.
     

  14. I know it seems so long. She better pay or I will open a dispute and block her.
     
  15. I don't understand why people don't immediately pay for the things they bought. If you don't have the money for it, don't bid. When the auction ends and I've won, I pay at once. It's a no brainer. I have my credit card linked to PP, so I end up paying when the bill comes in. It works out for everyone.
