On my listings I have stated- Please pay within 72 hours of winning item. (I just changed all of my current active listings to pay immediately or within 24 hours, because I know have 5 Buy It Now items I should have gotten paid for already) You know how frustrating it is if you sell things to just have them ready to go, waiting for the money, (to be used on a Disney trip in 2 days), Ebay already charging you a percentage of the sale, blah blah blah lame. So I was going to send a message like this to people from now on, is it too snotty? Hi, your items are packed up and ready to go, this is just a standard, friendly reminder that it has been 72 hours since the Buy It Now for item _________________ has ended. As stated in listing, payment is expected within 72 hours of item ending. Unfortunately due to several member not paying for items and leaving me stuck, Ebay now files an Unpaid Item Dispute automatically, on all of my listings 4 days after the item ends if payment has not been received. Thanks again for your business! - username Thanks everyone! Also I always pay for my Buy It Now items right away, I mean you're buying it now why can't you pay for it now? It's not like an auction when you place your highest bid and may not know right away if you've won it.
