I see this in my saved searches this morning...NWT VINTAGE RUGBY RALPH LAUREN CLASSIC FIT JEANS RRL SELVEDGE - $37 BIN with shipping....seems pretty good.
Click on the link and see they arnt RRL...hmmm, maybe they are selvedge which would still be a good deal. Send a nice email asking and but nope they arnt. He says he puts "RRL" and "SELVEDGE" in the title to get more views, but its ok, because he dosnt say they are RRL or SELVEDGE in the actual item description. I really want to report this little bastard. For all us honest hard working sellers you have jerks who try and game the system and it annoys me.
I really hope someone buys them expecting RRL Selvedge jeans and leaves him a negative feedback.
Yes, You can report it for keyword spamming. Looks like he has changed the title now, and removed "Selvedge". I suppose he can still get away with the RRL since it is Rugby Ralph Lauren.

Sounds obvious but I just don't, when I win something I usually pay immediately after the auction ends. Also on the send invoice page, my shipping changed from $10 and change to $15.80. Is that a preset of some sort or is it taking into account where the buyer is and adjusting the priority rate?
As always, thank you guys, I'm a seasoned ebay buyer but just getting back to the selling aspects.

Yes, ebay now sends an invoice automatically after the end of auction or BIN. After 2 days, they will then send a reminder on your behalf. I typically wait til the 4th or 5th day before I resend the invoice. If still no payment is received, I open a case on the 7th day, and send a friendly reminder. See below. The buyer then has 4 days to pay. If they do not pay by the 4th day, I close the case and relist. It works out pretty well this way. My auctions all end on Sundays, so with the above method the buyer has 11 days to pay and if they do not, I relist on the 11th day (Thursday) for a 10 day listing to start ita ll over again.
My standard 7th day payment reminder/open case notification: I always send this so they don't freak out.
"Hello, DON'T WORRY, YOU STILL HAVE 4 DAYS TO MAKE PAYMENT. The following message is just being sent as a reminder, and notification of a pending case.
I have not yet received your payment for this item. Buyers are given 11 days to make payment for purchases. As a matter of procedure, I open a unpaid item case on the 7th day so that I can relist the item on the 11th day in the case of non-payment. Don't worry, you still have 4 more days to make payment, and the opened case has no negative effect on your eBay account. Please make payment within the next 4 days or contact me if you need more time, to avoid any further action."
