    So, I have sold stuff on occasion, but not a whole lot, so my experience is somewhat limited. I sold 7 items last week, no problems except for 1 person who didn't pay. This same idiot of course asked a zillion q's beforehand, even asking for more pics though I had a dozen pics up already. I have it set to open a non-payment case automatically after 4 days. So, when the case gets opened she decides to finally pay. Then, I get a message from her today asking me to leave feedback for her. Do you think she is setting me up to leave negative feedback but wants to make sure I leave positive feedback for her first?

    Oh my god the last time I sold anything on eBay you weren't even allowed to leave feedback or negative feedback or something as a seller. When was that? I am old.

    I would ignore her. This person sounds like trouble, don't address her at all.

    Ebay took away the sellers right to leave negative feedback a number a years ago, it's pretty bullshit if you ask me.

    Most likely buyer was just taking her time paying so when u opened the case, she was reminded to pay. At least 1 out of 10 of my customers don't pay immediately, they usually want to take their time & look around. see if they want anything else. It's annoying but u have to let them do it. I don't file a case until 7 days. Tell her u usually wait until u are sure buyer is satisfied & has left u feedback, then u will leave it for her.

    Agreed, just ignore her. If she bothers you again you can report her, eBay has a policy against feedback manipulation or extortion.

    4 days is a long time to go without paying, I think I have mine set for 2 days.
    But if it was an auction it's possible she just forgot, or needed a couple extra days to get the money.

    It's not really a big deal to leave feedback for a buyer, you can't leave negative feedback anyway. I would just leave the feedback if you want and ask her to leave positive feedback for you as well. Or just ignore it. If she does turn around and neg you you can still follow up on the feedback you left her and the feedback she leaves you.

    As said, don't leave anyhthing.
    When I used to sell, I always stated "immediate payment required". Never had an issue.
