I sold a bundle of clothes on ebay which finished on friday. In the ad I asked for payment within 3 days of the auction end. On saturday i emailed the seller after not hearing anything from them and got a message back later on that day saying she will be paying on wednesday.

I sent a message back stating that it said 3 days after auction and I needed the funds for another purchase.

She messaged back yesterday morning saying she will check her bank.

I have heard nothing else from her and its now 3 days after auction end.

Am i within my rights to relist or do i need to wait 7 days and open a dispute?

TIA grin

even though you state 3 days, ebay's 7 days over-ride this so you will have to wait until you can open a dispute.
You can, if you want, see if the buyer will agree to a mutual withdraw and then you can relist

I do think you're being a bit impatient!! Is the bundle so fab you can be sure it'll resell? In this current Ebaying climate I'm grateful for any sale and as accomodating to sellers as possible - otherwise it's just turning money away. Your seller (waiting for your payment) could well be capable of waiting a little while for you to pay too.

Yes that maybe the case, I am being a little impatient but am a little annoyed that I stated quite clearly in the description that I would like payment within 3 days but the buyer took it upon themselves to bid (a high amount as everyone else got outbid) and then make no contact unless contacted, then say they wont be paying until 5 days after the auction.

Myself personally would read the description and if i couldnt pay in 3 days would ask prior to the auction finishing to ask if this was ok, if not then that is fine, if so then happy days, but none of this was the case!
