    I negotiated on an item on eBay, agreed on an amicable selling price (not talking small change), received an invoice, paid said invoice and then nothing... no comms, no tracking number, no nothing!

    It's been a week now and I've sent several requests for a response.

    How long would you give a seller before taking this matter to PayPal resolution?

    In your case, I would open up a case now.

    A week is more then a reasonable enough time to expect a reply ...

    I would give 5-7 business days. Then file a complaint.

    Gave the seller the benefit of the doubt as I understand that certain circumstances may arise in peoples day to day lives, but there's no excuse as to not being able to send a one liner with some form of excuse be it whatever (unless of course the person has ceased to exist).
    I appreciate the responses so far and will promptly file a case against the seller.
    Thanks Guys.

    Was the seller's ebay feedback compromised at all?

    He's been an eBay member since 2002, regularly sells exclusive pieces and has only had one negative feedback in the last 12 months.

    Hmm. I'd email one more saying you need a response within 24 hours to prevent a paypal claim, which is not proceeding you want to start. Willing to share what glasses are in question? Or at least the frame style - frogs, xmetals, pitboss, elite...?
