how long do you leave it between the auction ending/invoice sending etc etc and sending a message to remind the buyer to pay if they haven't done so? and how do you word it? i always feel like i'm being kinda rude and seem like i'm chasing my money :-/
I have sent payment reminders after 5 days. It actually worked twice, believe it or not. Everyone else has turned into a non-paying bidder. Ebay gives you 7 days - some buyers know this but most don't. Most will pay within 24 hours.
