No contact from Seller after winning item...

I won and paid for an item early on the 30th Sept. My payment has been showing in my eBay summary as pending since. I have messaged the seller but no response.

I had been in contact with seller prior to the listing ending with a question. Is there anything I can do? It's a dress that I really wanted.

you can pull their phone number and call them

A pending payment will have been sent to the wrong email address, if you log into paypal and click on the payment you can see the address it has gone to. Send seller a copy of this (wrong) address, they will then need to add this in their paypal account so they can access the money. I presume they typed in the wrong email address. At present your seller hasn't received payment so this could be why they haven't sent the item.

I pulled the phone number, made contact with the seller who said they had been having problems with eBay but assured me they would sort it out.

Two days later... nada.

so had they put the wrong email address on the listing?

She just said that she would look into it and get back to me. I tried to ring again but no answer.

Is there anything I can do to report the seller not fulfilling their end of the bargain. Just checking before I cancel my PayPal payment.

Just lately I have come across a few flaky sellers. Why bother selling if you don't actually want to post the item to the winning buyer?

cancel the payment and cut your losses, report it to ebay

This happened to me. Was really annoyed as it was an item I really wanted. I contacted the Seller several times, letting them know that Ebay has access to all corespondence between us... nada. I contacted Ebay and then left negative feedback saying what had happened. Eventually Ebay removed the item from my "pending". Never heard again.
