You Won! Now What?
You’ve somehow waited patiently (or not) throughout the entire process. As the clock ticked down to zero, no other viable competitors entered the arena, and your high bid stood. You won!
Now things really start to happen. You’ll receive an email from eBay notifying you that you’ve won the auction. You’ll also receive an email from the item’s seller, telling you how much you need to pay, and where to send the payment. Then you’ll need to reply to the seller, make your payment, and wait for the item to arrive.
