An eBay Invoice is used to remind a buyer to pay for their purchase on eBay. An eBay Invoice is a document that is issued when some transaction has occurred using eBays services. The issued invoice is sent to the client and includes information relating to the products purchased, the quantity and price. Moreover, it should contain all the relevant information required for the client to successfully pay for the products. This includes the various accepted methods of payment and information regarding bank accounts that the customer should pay into.
Failing to pay the invoice, the customer risks their eBay account being restricted and eventually permanently blocked from the platform. As eBay does not issue invoices automatically, you should be aware of how to create one. The buyer needs to pay this invoice in full before the items are dispatched.

Usually, all transactions that go through eBay are relatively simple and fast. After an auction (or purchasing the 'Buy It Now' price), clients are usually quick to make a payment and in return, the selling party usually dispatches the item as soon as the payment is confirmed. However, unfortunately that isn't always the case. Because of the nature of the payment system, eBay does not automatically charge a buyer when they win an auction - this is purely down to the buyer.
If you have waited a couple of days and your buyer has still not paid, it would be a good idea to get in touch with the buyer by sending an invoice. This will act as a subtle reminder for the buyer to pay what they owe.
Sending an Invoice on eBay is actually a lot simpler and quicker than people may believe at first. There could be a variety of reasons for this; sometimes a customer may submit an eBay Invoice Request. You should understand that the best format to send your invoice in is as a .pdf document.

It is important to take into consideration that eBay is still a business. As a seller, you will only receive fifty free listings. If you exceed this, you will be issued with an eBay Invoice fee which is usually 10% from the item you sold. Also, take into account potential PayPal fees for methods of payment and shipping costs when planning your budget.
