Sorry, missed a bit :

"Emails eBay sends for you :

48 hours after item has sold** Purchase reminder"

My fault, didn't read it well enough and certainly hadn't had enough coffee at
the time :-)

Funny, I can get those a couple of hours after I've 'won' the auction and
paid.

I didn't say I was at the keyboard 24/7.

I usually bid on stuff that's ending at a time when I am there or, if I have
to be out, I pay when I come back in. If I'm going away there's internet in
the hotels, internet cafes, internet enabled mobile phones etc. In short, no
reason to leave a buyer waiting for his/her money any longer than a day at
most like I said originally.

I've had sellers wait for over a week before collecting their funds, so it
cuts both ways, I've even had abuse from one because he didn't know how to
collect (now that account didn't last to long)
