It's easy to pay on eBay, no matter how you've bought your items:
- If you added items to your shopping cart, you'll see a Proceed to checkout button
- If you've selected Buy It Now, you'll usually be taken directly to checkout
- If you won an auction-style listing, use the Pay Now button in the email we sent you or in My eBay
- If the seller has sent you an invoice – for example, because you asked them to combine shipping for multiple items – use the Pay Now button in the email or in My eBay
If you have any items that you still need to pay for, you'll find them in your Purchase history section of My eBay.
You're expected to pay within 2 days of winning an auction or buying an item, but the sooner the seller receives payment, the sooner they'll send your purchase.Paying with PayPal
