If a person responding (or not) as they wish doesn't fit your lifestyle simply put a timeframe for a response in your initial inquiry. You don't even have to communicate that timeframe to the recipient of your message. If you don't have a response by your deadline, don't complete the transaction.
Example: Interested in your machine. If you'll take $5327.42 in Dogecoin, respond by 4pm and we'll make the deal. Have a great day.
Example2: I'll give you $250 cash. My offer expires on April 7th, 2018.
Example3-stealth deadline: Will you take $50? (impose your deadline here. If it passes, move on.)
