Buyers have up to 2 hours to pay for fashion brands, and up to 24 hours to pay for other items or the seller may cancel the order. 


Tophatter offers the option to request up to 7 days to pay by following these steps:

  1. Click the item
  2. Click I have a question about my order
  3. Click I want to pay later (For up to 3 days from winning or until canceled)

The seller will either approve or decline your request within 3 days. If approved, the unpaid order must be paid within 7 days or it will be cancelled. Please note that even if an extension is approved, the seller is not obligated to hold the inventory and they may still cancel the order at any point if you have not paid within 24 hours.

Keep in mind that buyers who have too many cancelled orders will be blocked from bidding in live auctions as explained in the FAQ: What if I have too many cancelled orders?
