I read the instructions on buying a new character and made sure to follow them.

I contacted the individual in game and made my buyout offer. He accepted. I posted my buyout offer in his sale thread and he responded that he accepted. I then transferred the ISK to him in game and posted the status. He responded in the sale thread that he got the ISK and transferred the character. I have screenshots of everything and tried to cover all my bases. Is there any way for me to verify that he's started the transfer? If he hasn't, (which he said he did in his post) is there a time limit on how long he has to transfer me the character?

Thanks guys and girls.

Do you have an empty slot on your account? Just checking, cause not having it will fail the transfer.

Otherwise, the transfer should be done within a day, as far as I know.
Perhaps something came up IRL and he is delayed, give him the benefit of the doubt, but if it has been taking too long, simply contact CCP, they will reimburse you.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I have one empty slot.

When transfer is started you get mail on the address you provided for your account, also it takes takes 10 hours to complete.

Character transfers take 10 hours to be completed from the moment they are initiated by the seller.

Do keep in mind that, as per the character bazaar rules, the seller has 48 hours to transfer the character from the time of receiving isk, so you should wait at least that long before contacting customer support.

My last character purchase did NOT receive the email.

That said, if you log into the eve online website and go to the character transfer page on the account receiving the toon, you'll get a message saying that transfers are prohibited because there is a transfer in progress or some such with a time for the 'unlock'.

In other words, you can use that error message to determine when your toon will be or if it has been transferred.
