Hi everyone. Recently I've had an issue with people bidding & winning my eBay items. When it comes to actually getting payment from them it's a totally different story. I send invoices daily & have clearly stated my payment terms in my auction details. I also know that I have to wait 7 days until I can report a non paying bidder. Any suggestions on how I can eliminate this ongoing issue?

Since eBay changed their feedback policy to where sellers can no longer leave negative feedback your problem has become very common. I rarely even list auction style listings because of this. I usually do buy it now auctions and require immediate payment. The only thing you can really do is do what your already doing and file the unpaid item dispute at the end of the 7 days. Buyers will usually pay up after the unpaid item dispute has been filed but it's a pain in the butt to have to go through all that trouble just to collect payment.
