Default Selling on Ebay - advice?

I sold my old cell phone on Ebay, and somebody won the auction on Monday evening. I immediately printed the shipping label so that I could drop it in any mailbox as soon as I got paid for the phone. I still have not been paid for the phone, and the winning bidder has zero feedback. I am starting to suspect I will never hear from him.

How long do I have to wait before I re-list the phone? It is a Galaxy S4, so its value is dropping fast as new phones are announced and released.

Did you put anything in the auction saying when payment must be made by?

Oh, and buyer's join date on ebay is about 3 days before my auction started.

I required immediate payment for a buy-it-now purchase, but he won it by auction. I don't think I specified anything for that.

He put the minimum bid on it 2 days into a 7-day auction, which killed the BIN option. Nobody else bid on it for the rest of the auction, and now he is not paying. I just want to get rid of this phone for the market rate ASAP before that rate drops any further.

he was probably selling a phone of his own, signed up to ruin your listing.

welcome to **** bay.


report him as a non-payer, and relist the item.

Well, per 18psi's suggestion, I sent another invoice and a note saying I would cancel if I wasn't paid by noon tomorrow. I probably won't actually wait that long.

The 32gb ones were going for anywhere from $400 to $500 when I listed mine a week ago.

Their new setup had me fucked up the other day. I didn't realize an invoice had to be sent before the transaction could be finalized and they could pay. I was wondering what was taking people so long to pay me.
