For anyone saying a non-payer is the same as a non sale... you are wrong. You have to wait 2 days before you can even open a case, then 2 more days at least to be able to relist. AND thats not including the time it takes to relist the item which is not always guaranteed to sell again!! Its really annoying when you have 2 or more bidders that would have most likely paid.. but instead you get this **bleep** that out bids them and then doesnt pay. Garbage system absolutly no insurance for sellers while buyers can do whatever they want with no risk. Here is my simple solution. If ebay refuses to give auctions the "pay when you bid"
option, then the only other thing to do is give the buyer an option. They can either agree to their account automatically getting charged when sale ends, OR they will agree to paying a standard 5.00 fee to the seller if they do not pay in 2 days. None of this 4 day **bleep** thats way too long for someone trying to run a business.
*So why do i keep using ebay? Im actually on my way out. Been selling more items on craigslist with 0 problems, and faster transactions. I like selling online, so if anyone knows of a site that doesn't have these issues please let me know!!!
