    You probably won't get paid... Have you tried messaging them? Anyway, don't send the book (obviously), just open an unpaid item case.

    You should send a polite message to the buyer asking why he hasnt paid yet and see if he replies.

    eBay say that if the buyer hasnt paid within two days you are allowed to set up an unpaid item case in the resolution centre.

    Os this the same thing you were worried about after 4 hours and have already posted about? 48 hours is the expected completion time and you cna open a ticket after. I'd give them twice that and then send them a polite message. Its the same answer as the other thread.

    I have sent them a payment reminder . I'm a bit confused cause they have like 250 reviews and 100% feedback so they clearly are an active person on eBay. I'll give them a few more days then I will open the case thing.

    I have now sent them a message and hopefully they will reply and I will give them until Tuesday and then I will open the unpaid item case thing.

    Thanks for the advice

    If thats the case then I'm sure something unexpected probably happened that the user hasnt paid. I once sold something on eBay and messaged the user why she hasnt paid (it had been over a week) but she finally replied saying she was in and out of hospital because she broke her leg (bad fall) she paid at the end thiugh and thats all I wanted really!

    Im sure the buyer will pay up soon, just give them a bit of time.

    Oh if they have lots of reviews it should be fine then. If not you can just relist as well, its not like ebay will force them to pay you.
