    I've had it when selling items, people stick a bid down and i guess presume they wont get it so they log off and dont check. I'd leave it a week before filing a dispute for non payment.
    He may be genuine but not checked his account for a few days.

    It's also possible that he only has Internet access at work (or could be away for the weekend) so can't check till tomorrow.

    I'd leave it until tomorrow afternoon, then ping him another message.

    I always put at the bottom of my listing, payment to be made 24hrs after auction, or with higher value items like cars, I require a deposit of 50/100 after end of auction. If the buyer doesn't act within 24hrs, you can report them straight away, though I've never had problems.

    Yes, its a two way contract - unless you've added a caveat like "deposit required" or "payment within 24hrs" then you are required to hold on to it for a reasonable period.

    If after sending several messages giving him a deadline he still doesn't reply, then it can be argued you've given enough chances and can go ahead and relist it.

    even if you put 24 hrs or deposit
    you still have to wait the days that ebay say
    before you can file a dispute

    Yea it's a bit of a cock, filing a dispute will only return your listing fee, but it's sorted now. Iv got a couple of nonpayers going on, both overseas. Some people think that because it's the Internet it means little to nothing. All non payers should be shot!!!!

    Your van sounds reasonably priced! Decent van for the money too, last thing you want when starting a business is a clapped out thing that will costing you time and money when it goes wrong.. I learnt this from experience.
