Re: How Long Do You Wait For Payment?

be interested in any viewpoints on a current situation I have with a newbie ebayer.

he bought a team for £11 on 7/9.
no payment made and no contact at all from him so yesterday I sent a polite request for payment.
he messaged back today saying he wants to wait for other teams I am selling before paying so as to combine postage although the next teams I have up for sale don't finish for another two days and there are more after that going up to next sunday.

would you

a) ask for payment of the team plus pp now and say will hold team for him and combine postage on any teams he wins

or

b) let him wait until other teams he is interested in have either been won or lost?

any views welcome

thanks

I have told him I wont wait another six days for payment on the first team he bought 7/9.

Hi,

Did you offer combined postage on the original lot?
Or is he just making an assumption?

I think depending how much he is spending if he is buying multiple items at a reasonable profit for yourself on this occasion combine postage. that also depends on your postage costs? You shouldn't end up out of pocket!

Might be worth mentioning to him in future correspondence that postage is only combined if stated...

He could be a time waster and mess up your other sales, so I would tell him to pay the full amount TODAY and then you can adjust payment on anything else he buys. If you don't receive payment I would block him and report to eBay.

Cheers gents
My items all say I combine postage v clearly and I have told him yesterday I will but he should pay for the item he has won now and then I said I will combine postage on others. I tend to agree with gully . So if he doesn't pay today do ebay allow us to cancel order and take off any. Ids in items ?

Careful what you do though as i was forced to wait three weeks to combine three sets, which was a hiss take, so i posted all three in one parcel with about a tenner off what all were singularly, actual postage was JUST under by a euro what he'd paid and he still gave me three neutrals because he thought the postage was still too high.....looking back i should have said no on sets they all go individually after point or sale but i was trying to secure the next sale, never again.
You are always at liberty to cancel a sale and use the cannot confirm del address or real ID option, if applicable or even if not if you get my drift.

I get so many Italians asking for stuff to go to a work address instead of the registered address paypal have i'm surprised i haven't used this option more often.

hmmm I am getting one or two buyers who buy a team then message me saying I will pay you in a few days because I am bidding on another item of yours. they don't ask if its ok they just tell me!
when I check the expiry dates of my other item next date is 7 days ahead.
personally I don't see this as acceptable
