Agree with you I hate they took away the right for sellers to leave a negative. I didn't even know this until about a year ago, and was flabbergasted when I found out. When I first started selling on eBay there was no such thing as PayPal - some buyers were horribly slow and took nearly a month to send you a questionable looking personal check in the mail...and then you had to wait another 2 weeks for it to clear. To me that kind of thing occasionally merited a negative if your cards were tied up just waiting that long, and you could have perhaps moved them elsewhere. But it was also a different time and thankfully situations like that don't really exist anymore. 99% of my buyers pay immediately online. I guess I just didn't have that set as a requirement with PayPal this go-round.
It hasn't even been 2 days relax. If you need paid right away make sure to put that in your item description. Have you even tried to ask the buyer when they expected to pay for your item?

I am like Adam and sometimes wait 3 or 4 days to pay if there are other items ending within a few days so I can just pay for them all at once.

I also understand that $200 can be a lot of $ that is needed ASAP. I have been there. I am kind of a jerk, so if someone opens a non paying bidder case on me without first emailing me. I always wait till the last minute to pay. Did I mention I am sometimes a jerk.

As a buyer, if the seller has several things I want, I will often wait until all of the auctions end before paying. He might be buying more stuff from you.

Some buyers who buy to resell, wait and pay for items won late in a month until the first of the next month. Maybe this buyer wants this expense on a different month's expense sheet....could have exceeded his payment budget for January. Many other buyers get paid on the 1st and 15h of each month, so their payment for their late in the month win may not get made until their funds are in their account on the 1st.

Either way, I would patiently wait. I have my NPB alert set to go out at 16 days and close 4 days later.....this month I had 15 items from 2 different buyers not get paid for, but I patiently waited for 20 days and closed the cases out as soon as I was able to.

By the way the system works, if they open a non-paying bidder case on you, you are already past the last minute.

I'm not in a hurry and more than willing to give the buyer some leeway, just had a few questions which I got answered here. Thanks.

Not to me either. My "inexpensive stuff" was $5-10 lots of junk era commons, at least until they stopped selling. And a few individual cards in the same range.

I did have a few nice items, but almost none of them were cards.
