HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT?

Post by BRIAN KB0CIG » Sun Oct 23, 2011 8:30 am

i AM FAIRLY NEW TO SELLING, BUYING AND TRADING ONLINE SO I HAVE A QUESTION..A PERSON RESPONDED TO MY AD AND SAID HE WOULD MAIL OUT MONEY ORDER THE NEXT DAY. AFTER NOT HEARING ANYTHING FOR FOUR DAYS, THIS PERSON CONTACTED ME VIA EMAIL AND SAID " PROBLEMS " AROSE BUT HE JUST MAILED OUT MONEY ORDER, BUT NOT REALLY BEING SPECIFIC AS TO WHAT DAY. THE PERSON IN QUESTION LIVES A FEW STATES AWAY AND IT SHOULD TAKE TWO TO THREE DAYS AT THE MOST FOR MAIL DELIVERY. HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT BEFORE POSTING THE AD AGAIN..I JUST WONDERED IF THERE IS A REASONABLE TIME..I THINK I AM JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO AGREE WITH ME THAT I SHOULD JUST REPOST THE AD AND MOVE ON..TNX, BRIAN

I SAID I AM NEW TO QTH, I DON'T MEAN I JUST FELL OF THE TRUCK.

I'd give it a week. If not received, then I would call or email the individual and tell them that the payment has not been received. I would then say that I am cancelling the transaction unless he/she could provide proof of money order purchase (copy of MO receipt tab). If no proof within 24hrs, I'd re-post the ad.
