Yeah I never mark as despatched until I have got back from the Post Office with proof of postage as you never no what can happen in your day. :lol:

Seems odd marking as despatched so soon, if he did post it first thing Monday you should get it tomorrow or Thursday.

Very strange, I also mark as dispatched when I get back in the car from posting anything.

My local PO is in a One Stop convenience store and is open until 10pm every day so it is feasible, although unlikely, that it was sent then. They could have also bought postage online and then marked as dispatched for their own peace of mind?
I wouldn't worry unless you don't receive it.

I have had this before.

My item was marked as dispatched on a Sunday evening.

It did turn up so hopefully you will be ok.

As others have said some post offices associated with shops are open late in the evening and on Sundays. It will be marked on the system, you will receive a receipt and proof of postage even if the item is not physically posted until the next postal service. Alternatively, if you dispatch items yourself as mentioned it will be recorded by eBay as soon as the order number is generated. I would not worry.
