We would like to remind all members that the new unpaid Item process
is now in effect.

Sellers can now open an unpaid item case 4 days after the sale takes
place. If a buyer still does not pay for an item after a further 4
days, the case can then be closed. At that point, a seller can get a
refund of their final value fee and the buyer is no longer able to
leave feedback on the transaction."

Have eBay withdrawm the NPB facility for sellers (just about the last
bit of clout sellers have)?

If they have then I don't really see it as a big loss.

Then how will repeat offenders be punished.

The old system used to be you had to wait 7 days (or thereabout) before
you could open a NPB case, then a further 7 days (or thereabout) before
you could close the case. Good on ebay for reducing these timelines cos
it was a pain having to wait 2 weeks before you knew it was 100% safe to
relist

Hm. That implies you can't block buyers with NPB strikes anymore.

I don't think so, I have just closed one and got the following message:

"You will receive a final value fee credit and the unpaid item will be
recorded on the buyer's account"
