I can see giving someone a couple weeks, but if it goes past 3 I'd be on them, especially if they claimed they shipped it already.
Its the sellers responsibility to keep the buyer up to date, to supply tracking information and to resolve problems if there is a shipping problem. Its also their responsibility to stay hot on the comms to ensure problems get resolved. There is NO excuse for 2 weeks of no comms when in the middle of a transaction. Its irresponsible as a seller. Not having given someone their product since July is a downright rip off.
Agreed. Entirely. It is also why I proceeded after hearing comradepaintball's story. His deal is far more risky then mine, which was over a minor, unexpensive item. I almost feel responsible for being just a bit too patient and allowing an unsuspecting fellow to get ripped off. Hopefully the later won't happen and the matter will be resolved, but still, I'm done with the eternal waiting on lame excuses.
When a seller receive his money, positive feedback for the buyer should be on the way. The responsibility of the buyer is to get the money into the seller's hand ASAP
and should solely be judged on that factor.
When a buyer receive the good, idem. If not, I say wait two weeks before firing a PM about concerns. Then two more weeks and boom. Negative feedback. The responsibility of the seller is to get the item in the buyer's hand ASAP
. Nothing more, nothing less. And if anything prevent the seller from delivering, then he ought to go out of his way to explain. Simple courtesy.
If comms are good, then that's another ball game entirely.
