Completing a purchase
We suggest that you pay for the item as soon as you win an auction or buy a fixed price item. Some sellers may also include information in the item description about when they expect payment to be made. However, please understand that all sellers do have the option to file an unpaid item dispute if they have not received payment after at least 7 days from the date the listing ended. If you have any questions about your payment, contact your seller.
Regardless of which payment method you are using, clicking the Pay Now button is the fastest way to pay on eBay. After you have won an auction listing or have clicked the Buy It Now button, you can see the Pay Now button in the following locations:
In My eBay, in the Items I've Won section.
In the confirmation email that you receive from eBay.
On the invoice email that you receive from eBay on behalf of the seller.
To pay for an item:
Click the Pay Now button.
Check your postage information. If any information is incorrect, click the Change postage address link to update it.
Review your purchase, including postage, insurance, and taxes. Select the box next to the items that you want to purchase. Then, click the Continue button.
Note: If you're missing total cost information or have questions about the total price, click the Request total from seller link. The seller will respond to your email.
Pay using PayPal:
Log in to pay by PayPal. If you do not already have a PayPal account, you can sign up for an account.
Confirm your payment:
Make sure that your postage details, payment method, and order details are correct. Then click the Confirm Your Payment button to complete your purchase.
Note: These steps assume that the seller is using eBay's Checkout system. Sellers have the option to use other checkout systems. If your seller does not use eBay Checkout, he or she will send you an invoice or other payment instructions to help you complete your purchase.
To request your seller's contact information:
Click the Advanced Search link at the top of most eBay pages.
Click the Find Contact Information link under Members on the left side of the page.
