what happens next?

When did they win the item? You can't open a case for a week I don't think. Invoice them and email them. After that you can either offer the item to the next highest bidder or relist it. Ask ebay for your seller fees back.

oh thanks , they won it 6 days ago

you can open a non paying bidder case now - you just need to wait 4 days to open it, then another 4 to close and get your fees back.

Do you need to wait the full 8 days before you can do a second chance offer fergoose?

fergoose Wed 14-Nov-12 18:57:21

yes - otherwise they could both pay, 2 buyers and only 1 item, plus 2 lots of fvf to pay.

Unfortunately no chance of both paying - idiot buyer

ok - well i would still advise waiting until the non paying bidder case is closed - is best to do it by the book in my experience, pain I know but easier in the long run.

Sorry, didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding your advice, just that I know the winning bidder has no intention of paying.

fergoose Wed 14-Nov-12 19:58:29

oh no - I didn't think you were! smile

cardoon Wed 14-Nov-12 20:09:05

phew smile- I find your help invaluable grin <creep>
