Far better if he'd done it before he bid as a courtesy.

As an aside, Amazon won't let you not pay. Instant or nothing.

In other words. No matter how many people you and those like you, inconvenience
on your merry waltz through life, it can almost be guaranteed that it will never
be your own fault.

Pay for my purchases straightaway with three clicks of a mouse ?

Enjoy up to 28 days credit on all my ebay purchases

Moi ?

You must be joking.

It certainly is - in my case, at least.

I'm not a trader, just a private buyer/seller on Ebay but I still get a bit
of a buzz when I win an auction. I'm usually at the keyboard in the final
minutes of anything I'm bidding on and as such, if I'm the winning bidder, I
usually pay there and then. Winning bid confirmation, payment made,
invoice/proof of payment from PayPal, all within minutes of the auction
ending.

Unless auctions end at strange times of the night/morning I don't see any
reason why a seller has to wait more than a few hours, a day at most, for
their money.
