I'm not a fan of being too pushy, bearing in mind buyers can leave feedback.
I do nothing for 48 hours, as eBay notifies buyers.
After 2 days I send an invoice.
2 days later, I'll send a reminder invoice, then file the dispute 1 day after that.
If I get a message I don't like, I file immediately - e.g.,a 'I can't pay until next week', or 'I changed my mind' message. Fortunately, those are rare.
Keep in mind weekends and holidays - many folks are not on their computers on weekends. Some only check email from work.
Most buyers pay quick, a few drag their feet.
You can use the unpaid item assistant to automate it if you wish, having the system automatically file disputes for you in as little as 48 hours EOA.

Sellers may start the Unpaid Item process as soon as 2 days (48 hours) 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.
