If they don't have the $ in their account, then they can't make an offer. The moment you accept, the $ leaves their account and hits yours. No exceptions. They also ship everything out for you. To me it's a no brainer....
    I would say 50% or more pay right away in my experience. If not, I give them days if not weeks, especially if they contact me and say I get paid in two weeks. I know this and I work hard to work with customers. But this is a cheater.

    If you wanted payment within two days or you were going to relist you should have just stated that you would relist if payment was not received in the two day time period, then it would have been fine. Just curious why didn't you try a second chance offer with the next highest bidder instead of relisting?

    Because the second chance buyer may be an honest person. I thought the second chance buyer has the chance to buy still for 24 hours? If not, I do not understand enough about EBAY. If not, it is 99 cents starting price for 5 days. Am I wrong?

    You are right that it is your possession, but you chose to list on eBay. If you don't like their rules, don't sell there. If you choose to list on a site that someone else created for benefit of both buyers and sellers, dont you think it only right to abide by the rules that that site sets forth? Just something to think about.

    You could have decided on a price you would be happy with, then put it on Buy It Now with the option of immediate payment when you buy it. A lot of them do that with the thought of "if you want it, you must pay immediately, otherwise it's still for sale". You could have avoided any headaches that way.

    If you decide to ignore the selling policies on Ebay, why should buyers abide by them also?
    Ebay is far from perfect, but you did decide to use it.
