That same seller bought two off of me. With that said, it took him about a week to pay up. All was fine, just wait it out.
that dude! He got 1 from me too. I've sent him 2 messages asking if he still wanted the damn thing. 1st time, he told me that he would pay on Wednesday. On Thursday, I asked him again and he said he would pay on Monday (today). If I wake up in the morning and I don't see the money, then it's going to be an unpaid item strike. being nice, I'm getting sick of this shit.
He won the first one from me on Jan 10th and didn't say a word for a whole week after that. When I listed another to end on the 17th he said he wanted to wait till that was over to pay. It has now been 9 days since that auction ended and I haven't heard a word from him.
So I now have 2 unpaids open against him. Don't you get temp banned from eBay if you get 3 strikes in 30 days? If so, me and galvaron can put him out for a bit just with our auctions. And I can't imagine we're the only ones. Anyway, he has 6 more days to reply to the unpaid disputes before I can close them. That gives him 2 weeks from the end of the second auction he won - that's plenty of time. If he doesn't pay by then he gets 2 unpaid strikes from me for sure.
It is just really annoying - don't bid on shit if you aren't going to pay within a few days at least. There's really no excuse not to pay same day (but at least on a regular auction vs a BIN I can sort of see not paying the minute it closes).
On the other hand, this guy bids on so many of these he is probably single-handedly boosting the prices of a lot of auctions for them
. Hopefully he doesn't engage in massive chargebacks when this is all done. He must be reselling them in some way but I'm not sure how.
