    If you have his telephone number. I'd call him up and ask him when does he plan to pay for that domain.

    Probably not enough money to go crazy over. But it's obvious that you have considered the risk involved in selling like this. If he doesn't pay, and this puts a bad taste in your mouth. You should consider pushing ONLY after the funds have been received. It's also a perfectly legitimate practice. Probably more so than pushing first. IMHO.

    I wouldn't get too excited about someone not paying after only a few days even if they said they would make payment right away. People are busy and sometimes buying a domain isn't a top priority unfortunately.

    I would have given him a week to make payment before contacting him after the first time. Just a thought on the next go around. However, I would always secure payment first before pushing the domain.

    Why everyone is saying not enough time?

    He has time to make changes to the name but not enough time to pay?

    You have to realize how weird you're making this for the buyer !

    You keep going on about how unprofessional HE is, yet you yourself are acting like a total amateur.

    If you weren't harassing the guy from Day 1, you'd probably already have been paid !

    I have sold over 100 domains where I first pushed the domain and than asked for payment.

    I have received payment in case of 99% of such deals. However in some cases clients have taken 7-10 days to make the payment but in majority of cases they have paid on same day itself. I personally would not make a issue out of it and give at-least 2-3 days to the client to make payment.

    Recently, one client paid me after 2 weeks of accepting domain name, He apologized for the same and sent me the payment, I am just facing one similar case where a client has not paid me $270. It's almost a month,
    I have reached him out by filling the form on his website and came to know that he is on a business trip and will be back by next week.

    Many businesses are used to terms like net 30 days where they have that period to pay invoices. If a payment period was not specified in the written or verbal contract prior to transfer either the person buying or more likely the person in payables may be assuming that. Other than a courteous brief request for payment I would do nothing else at this point.

    In the meantime, speak to PayPal and let them know that you have sold a good and the buyer has not paid his PayPal invoice. The seller guarantee may protect you from such scenarios. They may be able to help you to pressure the guy to pay up or may even pay you and reclaim the funds from him. Worth a try.

    I still want to see this FB page that's full of negative feedback on the buyer, as the entire decision on how to proceed depends on whether that earlier statement was correct.

    Seriously, if you lent money to someone (let's say a brother-in-law) and later found out he was a con man, would you really give him Net 30 to pay before doing something?

    They cannot make them pay, if they had paid, and there was an issue that would be another story, but to make someone pay that is not their role.

    Take a screenshot, then black-out all the personal info, leaving just the base comments.

    Personally, I've had 2x through NamePros where it took the other person over 3 weeks to either pay me or to transfer me the domain when I paid 3 weeks before. It can be pretty frustrating.

    A Transfer, Yes, understandable.

    A purchase with push, not acceptable unless the buyer and seller agree on a payment schedule.

    I would pursue this buyer, this appears too blatant on the buyer to not communicate and pay for their purchase.

    No, you can't MAKE the buyer submit payment, but expose the hell out of this person, so others won't get ripped off by them.

    No agreement was made for partial payment, payment in two weeks and ect on this sale.

    I push domains all the time with no payment and I almost always get domains from namepros members without payment. However, I feel bad if I don't get the payment to them in 10 minutes. I once had partial payment held by paypal and I communicated with the seller at all point informing of the issue and what was happening.

    In the years I have done business I have almost always worked on a handshake.

    That said, I mostly pay paypal or bank transfer and in both cases the transfer of funds are clearly marked FULL payment for domain.com. If I don't get the domain I get the money back from paypal and I can get it back from my bank.

    Documentation is the key if you are going to work on handshake. I have been very fortunate because I use a bill of sale and have a very in depth contact form. I traditionally research my clients well before the sale actually happens. I find too many domainers don't have enough info when selling a domain. The standard name, telephone and email really does not cut it.

    Have a look at my form www.mapledots.com/contact and word something similar. With that type of information you can easily track the buyer or get your funds back.

    Looks good. I'm going to improve my own contact form based around this format.

    Yup, that was 100% designed and implemented by me, it has been a great tool. I am not shy in letting perspective buyers know that acquiring one of my domains by providing fraudulent information leaves them open to possible legal complications.
