How long should you wait before giving Negative feedback on eBay?

How long before you give someone a negative feedback for no payment?

Some guy won my auction for my bike on Saturday night, 7 PM EST. I emailed him right away. No response.

I emailed him again Sunday afternoon.... No response.

I just emailed him again today and said that if I don't hear from him by tomorrow 7PM, I will be considering this a no payment and leave a negative feedback?

According to the auction, deposit was supposed to be paid within 48 hours (has no passed). And the balance within 5 days. I don't mind give the guy a bit of extra time, but he has not contacted me at all. And he just bought some bike gloves on the 3rd of March? So he is around?

I'd wait the 5 days since that's when you said you wanted payment by. During that time I would go through the eBay channels of trying to contact him a couple more times.

What sucks is that if you leave him a negative, you can bet that will get his attention and then what will he do? Leave the same for you. I have 938 positives and just one negative on my ebay account. The only negative was for that reason. I gave the guy a week to contact me with no luck and he gives ME a negative just because I let him one.

Ya, and this guy has 100 positive and no negative. I would hate to scar his record. But, hey, you won the bid, now man up!!

Anyone live in VA. Wanna pay him a visit?

Re: How long should you wait before giving Negative feedback on eBay?

His request for info said Chesterfield, VA and his shipping address says Midlothian, VA, 23112.
I got his phone number, (804 area code) but the number is no longer in service. (Could be his original number when he registered 6 years ago)

So I don't see how to reach him besides via email? I need to find a good local phone number search for VA. Maybe find his current number at the 23112 zip.

Re: How long should you wait before giving Negative feedback on eBay?

If I see someone with a negative and it was clearly for retaliation, more power to them! Some lazy traders deserve the feedback.

Re: How long should you wait before giving Negative feedback on eBay?

After leaving a vm at his house, I finally get an email response today.

"I apologize for the late response but I have been out of town and busy with work. I am sorry but due to some unforeseen circumstances I will not be able to complete this sale. My deepest apologies."

What the hell am I supposed to do with that? He won the friggin auction. It was not a game, "so lets see how much I can bid"

WTF!!

Re: How long should you wait before giving Negative feedback on eBay?

You can file something with eBay to get your fees back and then relist the bike. I would for SURE give this asshat negative feedback now.

Now he says.

"I sent another e-mail. Some unfortunate situations have come up and I apologize about the delays. I failed to realize that you are in Canada and that far away. I honestly do not feel comfortable about making long distance transactions in this amount and not seeing the bike and title on site. If there is another solution to complete this sale please fel free to let me know!"

Hello, you are on EBAY. Not like it is your first time, you have bought over 100 things!! It says 3 times on the description, it is a Salvage Title and the bike is in Canada. Why did you Friggin bid if you were not comfortable with that??


Here is the auction.

How much more obvious should I make it??

Re: How long should you wait before giving Negative feedback on eBay?

You add seemed pretty clear cut to me, I know where the bike is, I know what doesn't come with it, I know about the title and what state the title is from. Probably wanted a street bike found out that a salvage title bike can't be put on the road and doesn't want to drop 4K on a bike that he can't put anywhere but the track.
