Can a seller open a case on eBay?

Sellers can open an unpaid item case through the Resolution Center. You can open as soon as two days after the listing ends, or immediately if the buyer is no longer registered on eBay. Be sure to close cases within 36 days, or eBay will automatically close the case and you will not receive the final fee credit.
