A bidder still hasn't paid me, this hasn't happened before and I'm not sure what I do.

She won my item 2 days ago, and I've sent her an email, and an invoice, so what do I do next?

Wait, she has seven days to pay under ebay rules. You could send a nice email again after 5 days perhaps?

Right ok, I didn't know she had 7 days blush. Maybe I should go re-read the rules grin

I think it is something that a lot of people miss - until something like this happens of course grin

In fairness I am sounding all clever but I only found this out myself a week or two ago when another MNer had the same problem blush grin

So I can't give her Neutral feedback then I guess hmm It's only something for 99p aswell blush

You can't give neutral anyway can you? I thought sellers could only give pos feedback now?

Anyway, nothing negative if it is within 7 days, that is why you see people making a point of saying "fast payment" in the feedback, it is the only way to highlight those who do not stall.

Well I knew you couldn't leave negative feedback now, but I didn't know that was the same for neutral. See, I know nothing blush
Thanks for helping though, I'll get off her back for another few days grin

For 99p it is probably worth ignoring her until she sorts it out herself IYSWIM.

Chill dizzy! Not everyone spends hours a day on their computer. There are some people that turn on their computer, bid on an item and don't switch it on again for another week! The buyer has 7 days to pay and then if you start a dispute they still have a further 8 days to pay before you can close the case and get your listing fees back!
I second the polite message on day 4-5 saying 'your item is packed and ready to go I'm just waiting for payment'
