I send a reminder email after 7 days - then give a further 3. If I haven't heard from them after that I start an unpaid item dispute.
The email that I use is,

Thanks for buying my item. I have not heard from you since you won this on XXXX. Please can you let me know if you have sent payment yet as I am concerned that it may have gone astray in the post.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Feel free to copy if you like it!
