Beware of slow payer, Buyer took over three weeks to pay for a buy it now Item.
Wow! You know your backhanded positive feedback really reflects on your reputation.
Did you know you can file a UPI after 4 days and close it after 4 more days, get back your FVF, relist the item and the buyer gets a strike?
You might wish to use all the great tools ebay gives we sellers.

just add this members ID to your blocked bidder list if you are that troubled by a slow payment.
BTW...how do you define 'slow'?
are you aware that buyers have 4 days to pay before sellers can take action for nonpayment?

please, you must know that a seller cannot leave anything other than positive feedback for a buyer.
that policy has been in effect for over 4 years now.

The false positive you left for your buyer is a serious policy violation and can damage your account.
The fact that your buyer took over 3 weeks to pay is your fault as you could have opened a dispute after 4 days. To warn others that this buyer is slow to pay and to accuse them of slow payment is totally inappropriate feedback.

I'm sorry but you have to readjust your selling standards, because a buyer that pays is not "less than positive." EBay is not hiding anything.
For a reason such as this, eBay has made that a seller can no longer leave anything but positive for a buyer.

Ebay has not allowed sellers to leave neutral or negative feedback for almost FIVE YEARS now.
