Ebay Question

How long do you wait for seller to reply to messages? I paid for item and left message to give me tracking info...wait 3 or 4 days before I start worrying?

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: Ebay Question

I usually wait a week before using anything other than email. After a week or so I have used the feature on ebay to remind the seller... I have only had to do this 2x I think. You can go so far as to get the phone # of the seller from ebay.
Best of luck,
Chris

Re: Ebay Question

Hopefully its just a deal where the seller was absent minded and set an auction to end when they are out of town or otherwise away from the computer. Ive done this a couple of times, and felt bad for the buyer when I realised it.

Re: Ebay Question

As a seller, I've done that a time or two, but as a buyer, I've had it happen several times. In most of those cases, I got the product before I got a reply.

Unless the rules have changed, the buyer and seller have 72 hours to email each other after the auction's end. I usually wait at least that long before pinging the other party.

Re: Ebay Question

Utah... I list my auctions with a caveat for NO international bidders to avoid that kind of crapola...


Edit:
On a serious note...most of my transactions have taken place in 2-3 days. Had one drag out a bit longer, but the seller came through in the end.

Re: Ebay Question

Yeah, with Utah not being in the United States our postal system tends to take a bit longer.
Then there's the whole exchange rate issue.
