Did you list your payment terms in the listing?  This at least gives buyers an idea of a seller's anticipated payment date.


Meanwhile, you can't do anything for minimum 4 full days... after that, you can file the Unpaid Item Dispute:




Good luck!

Sellers may start the Unpaid Item process 4 days after auction close.  They can close the Unpaid Item Case as early as 4 full days later, issuing a nonpayment strike to the buyer.


Sellers should not relist or make any Second Chance Offers, until the Case has closed.

Buyer has 4 days.  If no payment, you can open an Unpaid item dispute.  If no payment in an additional 4 full days, you can close case, and re-list.
