Never ship the item until you have all the money that you're owed, and I guess as a corrollary, don't volunteer a shipping method that compromises your end of the deal. No one needs an old XBox that quick, and as impressive as a next-day courier delivery sounds, don't leave yourself vulnerable. People are going to be just as happy getting a deal on something whether it's after 2 days or 7. Also, since there were no shipping costs included for when the buyer goes through "checkout," that's all he's obligated to pay, really, so you can't report him for nonpayment if he only pays you the 71 euros.
