How do I mark my item as paid or posted?
You can track the status of items you are buying and selling (if you have a seller's account) and update the status under the Take action column in My eBay.
Marking an Item as Paid
If you paid for an item and your My eBay is still showing it needs to be paid, you can manually mark the item as paid for your own records. Marking your item as paid does not notify the seller. Regardless of what the status shows in My eBay, as long as your seller acknowledges receiving payment, your part of the transaction is complete.
To mark an item as paid:
From the left column of My eBay, click the Won link under Buy.
In the Won section, find the item you want to mark as paid.
From the Take action menu, select Mark as Payment Sent. The icon turns blue, so you can quickly see that payment is complete for this item.
Note: If you pay for your item using PayPal, or the seller marks the item as Payment Received on their My eBay page, the payment status in My eBay will be automatically updated to display as Payment Sent. However, if you paid using another payment method, and you manually mark the item as Payment Sent, the seller is not automatically notified.
Marking an Item as Posted
If you posted an item to a buyer and My eBay is still showing it needs to be posted, you can manually mark the item as posted for your own records. Marking your item as posted does not notify the buyer.
To mark an item you sent as posted:
From the left column of My eBay, click the Sold
link under Sell.
In the Sold section, find the item you want to mark as posted.
From the Take action menu, select Mark as Posted. The icon turns yellow, so you can quickly see that the item has been posted.
Note: You can also send an invoice, relist an item, and print a postage label from the Take action menu.
