So I've got two theories:

1. If they don't have PayPal, they probably aren't going to pay. (So I always require PayPal).

2. Theory 1 notwithstanding, if they haven't paid within 24 hours, they probably are never going to pay.

Thoughts?

elicat....not necessarily so. Sometimes my hubby buys things and he always wants me to take care of the payment transaction. Sometimes it slips my mind for a day or two....but I do always try to pay right away....and I mean, like, in the first couple of hours....but sometimes it doesn't work out that way.

I have accidentally gone a couple of days without paying - but normally I am a 1 or 2 hours guy.

Well, you all were right in this case. He did come through and pay. I've had enough bad experiences, though, that my heart just sinks when 24 hours pass and I haven't heard anything. Quite as often as not when that happens I'm in for the whole non-paying bidder process and waiting out another auction. But this time, all was well in the end.
