    I'm not a big time eBayer--what do I do if sell something and the buyer doesn't pay?

    It's not a big deal, and I'm okay not chasing after this person for the payment or dealing with negative feedback. I'm just hoping to find out the timeframe before I can report it without it coming back to haunt me, and how I file for non-payment so that I can get it listed for free.

    And if y'all regulars have any other guidance with this stuff, I'd appreciate it.

    I don't believe it's set... Usually a week to 10 days. I think setting the 'pay by' date is really part of the seller's job.

    Yeah 7 days from the auction's close is correct to open a dispute. On the 8th day AFTER the dispute was opened you can close it out to collect your lost fees. Should the buyer not respond to the dispute before you've closed it out, they lose their right to leave you feedback. Meaning, you get the joy of negging their ass and not worry about retaliatory feedback! Once they've responded to the open dispute though, feedback can be left by both parties like usual.
