another stupid ebay question from a novice seller

hello, sold an item on ebay a few days ago, sent invoice, buyer has not paid yet ( I accept paypal). I didn't state a 'payment time period' in the listing so how long does the buyer have to pay? (Am going round in circles on ebay help topics)

Thanks smile

7 days normally, then you can send a reminder.
HTH!

(No harm in asking them politely if and when they intend to pay as you need to know)

If they still don't pay after your reminder then you can do what Ebay call
Reporting an Unpaid Item Dispute

"look at this link for info rebulk.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?CreateDispute,

thanks too ten10, the buyer has excellent feedback so hopefully he/she will pay soon, (can see now why sellers always comment in my feedback saying 'prompt payment' etc grin)
