    the day after christmas (12/27/11) i sent a seller my payment through pay-pal. He sent me a message 12/30 saying he would ship the item that day. ok cool, but havent heard or received anything from him since. We both live in CA and are about maybe an hour apart. Its a small item he makes for 1st gen tacos......so i doubt it should take over 6 days for it to only have to travel about an hour. Not gonna say any names yet but its pissing me off. Ive messaged him twice over the week and he hasnt responded... and i can see when he's online! :mad: does this seem fishy to anyone else or am i just being impatient?

    todays dec 7th and still nothing......no message or MY ITEM still!! I sent him another message saying if i get no response or item soon ill report to paypal

    Call him out, he'll be more likely to do something about it if his reputation is at stake.

    That is plenty of time to respond. all the sellers i have done business with have been very good about letting me know whats going on. I say it is fishy..

    If he doesnt man up then call him out by name. Putting bad rep on somebody makes them look bad and they will most likely fix it. No shipping comformation number?

    I would go with this. If he set it up to ship on the 30th but dropped it late or whatever- It possible it got shelved over the weekend and didn't get out until Tues. A couple days for the mail to process it thru (during the holidays when mail load is high). Seems like today could be a reasonable day to expect it...
    The no contact at all thing tho...That is a little weird. A note that says "Sorry...Got held up..Shipping it next week" sucks-but things happen and at least you know what is going on.

    i'd be legitimately concerned starting today if you don't receive it. granted the post office was closed on monday of this week. but even so that doesn't excuse his not replying to your messages. that is just poor business and especially so if you saw him online. i would call him out myself if you don't have anything in your hands today.

    If he shipped USPS there is a huge delay with getting shit. I'm on 7 days for a item I ordered that I could of drove 20 min to get. USPS sucks.
