    for a buyer to respond to an invoice? My FP Bruticus ended for $352 early yesterday, I invoiced the guy within an hour of the auction ending and haven't heard a word from him.

    How long should I wait?

    I've sold over 200 items on eBay and never had to wait longer than a couple hours for payment. Am I being too impatient?

    I would say you are jumping the gun.

    Your auction does not state how many days the buyer has to pay. I would add this information to your future auctions.

    I normally wait a week before I email the buyer.

    You can open an unpaid item dispute after 4 days. However, this may result in you getting a neutral/negative feedback.

    Sounds good, thanks for the input. The buyer paid this morning so all is good. It appears I was jumping the gun, this is just the first time anyone has taken that long to pay. I've been spoiled. :)

    I personally don't think you're being impatient. I always shoot the buyer an invoice right after the auction as well as state they have 7 days to pay in the description.
