Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you all a heads up and save some of you from some headaches :) I've been selling my father's watch collection on Ebay and had the inconvenience of a non-paying bidder. I just wanted to give you all a heads up so you can add him to your blocked bidders list :) His ID is aeknana. After a couple of weeks of waiting for the case to be closed, I'm finally free to relist...but what an inconvenience! Let me know if there are any other Ebay ID's I should block before I relist lol! :)

non payment can be a real pain but, I have a basic routine. If the items is not paid in 24 hours I send the buyer a short note asking if they need time to pay or if they wish to cancel.
Many times I get payment within 24 hours afterwards. If I get no reply I just cancel the order. Works out much better than waiting for a case to close.

What a pain. I have not sold anything on ebay yet, but I buy a lot of stuff off ebay. When I do I try to pay right away.

Just know that if you close a case *without* permission from the buyer, you risk getting a seller "defect" on your account. Too many of those, and there may be increased fees or selling restrictions.

Here is the page explaining cancellation. https://www.ebay.com/help/selling/getti ... on?id=4136
In the last year I had to canceled only 2 orders and one of them paid even after I canceled the order and they left positive feedback! they just needed a kick in the ass to pay.

Another EBay tip - run more than one account so you can sell with one and buy with another.
