This decision is up to each individual seller's comfort level.

 

eBay allows sellers to open a case in as little as 2 days (48 hours), up to a maximum 32 days:

Whatever you decide, play fair with the buyers and include a polite note in your listing that you'd appreciate payment within X days... this at least gives them a heads-up:-)

 

Good luck!
