When you create your auction on eBay, be sure to include how long a buyer has to pay. If they do not pay within this time frame, send another invoice with a reminder note.

Buyers can pay sellers almost immediately through PayPal so theoretically the seller can receive payment within seconds of the auction ending, but in most cases, it takes 24-48 hours for the buyer to pay the seller. You will always have the exceptions where buyers take longer to pay, though.

Once the buyer has clicked on the "pay now" button, the transaction is usually be almost instananeous, but if the payment method is by e-check, it can take several days before the seller receives cleared payment into their PayPal account.
