    hmm, I am guessing your not sending the product before you get paid, correct? And is it an electronic product or a physical product?

    If you are an eBay seller. Just do not ship the product until the balance is in your account. It is that simple. What are you selling, is it virtual or physical with a shipper # or address?

    You can deter from getting non paying buyers on eBay if you block buyers that dont have a PayPal account and block buyers that have received 2 unpaid item strikes within 12 months in the site preferences.

    I'm guessing you're running auctions? Those are the numbers I experience with auctions, theres no real way to solve it, and it's why I quit using auctions.

    If you're doing BIN the number should be zero, just require immediate payment for all BIN transactions. I've had some people whine about it as they wanted to "reserve" the item, basically place the BIN on a Monday and pay on Thursday when they get paid but as far as I'm concerned whoever pays first gets the item.

    i am not sure if I know what a "BIN" transaction is

    I had this problem of people clicking on buy but not paying then I saw that when I use the advanced listing creator (or what ever it is called, I just know it is not the basic one) that I get a option to require payment before it lets just any random idiot on ebay become the buyer

    I believe you need to have a paypal account that has a bank account linked to it to be able to use this feature

    If your ebay account has a basic $1,000 monthly selling limit having this option really comes in handy otherwise the idiots that click buy and never pay might run up your limit and make you have to wait days or weeks before you can post another listing

    also I imagine it would be annoying even if a seller did not have to worry about a monthly selling limit because just having to make sure you get all of the final value fees credited back to your account because of the idiots that buy but do not pay

    there is always paypal solutions from a member here on blackhatworld his name is "SecondEye" if you do not have a bank account he can set you up with what you need to make paypal think you are legit
