    What do you do when a winning bidder doesn't pay within the amount of time you set in the auction? Do you send a friendly email reminder or do you have to go thru ebay?

    I would send a reminder through ebay.

    If you attempt to get your final value fee refunded, ebay will make you send a reminder to the buyer anyway, so it's best just to go through ebay.

    I would send a friendly reminder. For me a lot of the time they'll just go and pay up after they receive the email.

    I send a friendly reminder via email. I don't go through Ebay until about 3 weeks after the auction (my auctions state that payment is appreciated within 10 days, but I generally give people up to a month as long as they are in touch and respond to my email). 90+% of people pay within the first couple of days by Paypal, though.

    I give them a week and then I let Ebay send the reminder. Why wait longer? If they are interested enough to bid then they should pay. I will allow extra time if they email and keep me informed.
