    If you had a buy-it-now auction on ebay, someone purchased it, how long would you wait for payment?


    I ask because someone bought an iPhone from me, around 36 six hours ago, and I've yet to hear anything from them. Also their location is APO/FPO, which I'm not sure is in the lower 48 US states(which is the only place I'm willing to ship) Also they have zero feedback which is troubling.

    They have answered zero of my messages, so I'm wondering...at what point do I relist it or look to craigslist to sell?

    APO/FPO is a military address. If they are overseas the shipping should not be more than it would be to the lower 48 I believe. Check with the post office to be sure. I would probably give them a week and in the future make note in your auction that payment should be sent within X number of hours.

    Yeah, APO/FPO means Army Post Office / Fleet Post Office.
    I would give it a few days.

    As a suggestion for buy it now listings, I've always found it helpful to require immediate payment for those.
