I usually start my auctions to end a certain evening then take the next day to the post office (assuming they paid). If I don't get payment that night then they wait. It states in my bid that all items ship next morning if payment was made or I will ship out on XX (usually 2 days later) provided payment was received. I would have to look at my exact wording but you can make it sound professional and I always get great feedback.
