I do find it odd that people can be super responsive before the sale, then once they have the money they all of a sudden can’t reply to messages. No idea if the OP’s situation was like this. But i can relate. Its not impatience. Its the anxiety of not knowing. Had it happen to me once. Once. Omg - who doesnt want a Johny Dangerously pin? Ok nobody. Back on track. I got my item but it was a long period of silence before i got tracking. And ya, could see they were logging into pinside everyday.
So when i sell something i make a point to ship it as soon as im sent payment. the next day at the worst. I feel its my obligation to fulfill my end of the bargain once they fulfill theirs. I’m in the camp of those who give a shit about their rep.
I didn’t read the OP’s post as impatience. Or entitlement. Just wanting advice on when to do something. I’m sure right now someone else has a similar thread where they are being told they shouldnt of waited so long to say something....
Anyway, I would consider the sellers rep, history on pinside and feedback before i got too nervous. Plus you didn’t use F&F so you always got that to fall back on.
