Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I just sold an item on eBay and I'm not sure when to post it.
I said that I would post within 2-3 days of receiving cleared payment but I'm not sure how to tell if it's cleared? It sold today and the buyer paid by Paypal and in the sold section, the trolley thing and the pound sign are both in blue which means checkout completed and paid by Paypal.
The thing is it's quite a lot of money (£114 .. it was one of the undated 20ps ) and I don't want to post it until I know I've got the money, but I don't want to leave it too late and get bad feedback. So basically how do I know if the payment has cleared?

If they've paid, send it. You're protected by ebay anyway.
Check their feedback too?

if it is in your Paypal account and they've acknowledged it then it should be posted.

If they have paid, they have paid. As soon as you pay for something from paypal it either comes out of their paypal account or directly from their bank account. If its showing that its in your paypal account, you have it, so just send it.
Its the point of paypal, to be quicker

The paypal payment is done so send it ASAP

Is the payment not in your paypal account? I don't remember if it happens immediately when they've paid or you have to wait for a few days.
But if it says he has paid then you have been paid. On Ebay you usually don't send something until they've paid anyway (winning the item and paying for it are two seperate activities), which according to you they have.

Make sure you send it by special delivery
