    Is there a standard timeframe to expect a payment? I didn't say payment due with xxx in my listing. My listing closed Aug 18th, I sent an invoice and I haven't heard a thing. What should I do?

    With my invoice, I always let them know to contact me within 3 days (per ebay rules) and ask that they pay within 7 days.
    I would contact the high bidder and check with them about how they intend to pay and when they intend to pay, in a nice way....
    Do they have decent feedback?
    Also, just as a piece of advice, you should put payment terms in your auction, and whatever other terms of service you wish to have....

    I usually put in my auctions that i need to hear from the buyer in 3 days and receive payment within 10.

    If its been a week and you havent heard anything then do a payment reminder..

    You can send a payment reminder through ebay on/after day 3, do this now. If you do not hear from them in another 3 days and assuming it has been more then 7 days since the end of auction, go ahead and send a NPB.

    IMO, it is always a good idea to set your terms in your auctions. I use the stand contact within 3 days payment within 10.

    I guess I just need to post the problem on DIS and it gets resolved...I got the $$ today! Thanks for the input. I will definitely be putting a payment due by xxx on my next listing.

    I like the 7 day theory. We accept both PayPal and Money Order.

    I have seen auctions that only accept PayPal request payment within 3 days. I believe that is fair. As I allow the extra 4 days for a money order to be received.
