As soon as I can. Day-of-sale if not immediately. I'm not one to sit and watch the clock run out on an auction, and I'm often not home at closing time. I tend to keep late hours, so I suppose a few sellers have gone to bed wondering, only to wake up the next day to find my bill paid. It's usually no more than a few hours, though.
Hm.That didn't come out right. Let me clarify: As soon as I'm possibly able to check on an auction, I pay it. If I've got a bid on something, I'm mindful of that fact and will check it as soon as I'm near a computer. I couldn't imagine letting it go for a whole day or more.

Good to hear there so many.

PD, I've gone through it quite a few times and eBay wouldn't let me file anything for 4 complete days and we sellers are no longer able to give negative feedback even if we use the positive button and type in a negative it can be pulled. Yes, Nonsense (to say the least) at it's finest.

Spud, Even though I pay and give feedback to my sellers with lightening speed, as a seller I never and I mean NEVER give feedback to my buyers till I receive feedback from them. Been there done that and was seriously used & abused, it didn't take a 2x4 to the back of my head to figure out that some people given the chance will trounce on you for just being there. (No good deed goes unpunished sorta thing. All I can say is I tend not to trust my fellow man or woman till they show me I can.

I've had a buyer want to argue about combined shipping of two 30 pound antique fans in one box. Had another tell me I had to take a credit card but, refused to use PayPal.
And another tried to twist my words in a auction description "I always strive to ship the cheapest" and he wanted me to ship a 16 inch fan (which BTW stands about 26 inches tall) in a Flat Rate box. I couldn't make him understand it wouldn't fit so I refunded him and then he paid me again and told me if I refunded him one more time he'd get eBay on me. Now that's just a few of the nut cases I've come up against. And that's just a few, I bet I have close to 30 names in my blocked buyers list.

I have a 5-star rating for prompt payment on every single transaction I've ever made for which feedback was given ... in most cases, I've paid immediately after 'winning', the exceptions being only those where my bid prevailed but I didn't realize that for a short time ... I've never let a seller twist in the wind waiting for my payment ...

Good for you sir!
And you said the magic words, "for which feedback was given". Some buyers and I would guess to say 10 percent of them don't even leave feedback at all. I'm very curious how they themselves get very much feedback. Of course I would imagine that selfish people don't care much about anything except themselves so feedback isn't needed to them. Everyone should automatically know there great because they already think it.
and BTW, I also have spotless feedback/ 5 star and the NEG's I did get years ago were pulled by eBay because they where just malicious. Wink

I almost always pay within 24 hours. I cannot do that, I always contact the buyer and let them know when I will pay, which is usually within 72 hours.

I, like you, never understood why people bid and win and wait so long to pay. I had such an issue when selling with people paying at all. With those, I never dealt kindly with, seeing as you should not bid on something you cannot pay for.

You ever sell a used vehicle to a friend with full disclosure and have him come back and complain that it doesn't do this or that anymore or it's doing this and that now, or I have to replace this or that etc.etc.

Well, that's the way I feel about selling anything to people I know, if by chance they do, fine but, I'll not advertise.

My sentiments exactly, you surely wouldn't go in to a department store and purchase a TV without having a way to pay for it, or maybe some would  Suspect
