When I get notified of a client payment do I need to wait until it shows up in my account or do I just assume it will and ship. First time selling under the new format?

Always wait for cleared funds from the buyer before mailing.

Need to assume the worst because the worst will happen.

100% FALSE!

You need to ship within your stated handling time, regardless of whether funds have reached you. Under EMP that may mean shipping before the funds hit your "available" balance, let alone before they hit your bank account.

You should get 2 emails on every sale. The first saying "Sale confirmed" which means the buyer has committed, but has not yet made payment. Then a second "Your item sold!" which means the buyer has made payment to eBay and the clock starts ticking.

If you don't want to ship before actually receiving the funds in your available balance, then you need to edit all your listings and push your handling time out far enough (5-10 days) that the funds will clear before you are obligated to ship.

As soon as an item shows up on my "Awaiting shipment" list I ship ASAP. I've been using Managed Payments since September and sold 1200+ items without any payment problems.

I sold two items in the past few days. I shipped both after getting verification of payment. No sign in my account as yet.

Getting worried...
