I think a buyer might not pay, what do I do?

just open the non paying bidder case and close it in 4 days to get your fees back. then you can relist or do a second chance offer.

Help! I'm pretty new to selling on eBay and last week I put my Nintendo Wii up for sale. It was bumbling along steadily until the last 2 minutes when load sof bids were placed.

After it was over, I went to message the guy that won to thank him for bidding when I saw that he only had one feedback which was - "BEWARE! Buyer did not pay" - this was left as a positive though.

I messaged him anyway and asked for payment ASAP so that I could sort postage, no reply and no payment. I messaged again this morning and said that in light of his one and only feedback, I would appreciate payment or a reply within 48 hours.

Still no reply and no payment.

My gut says I won't receive payment for this item, do I just relist it or do I have to go through a dispute process first? How long do you need to leave it before you can do either of those things?
