Usually a reminder or "no stress, just haven't received yet" is sufficient - often I feel an unwritten caveat as often cheap prices on here is that people posting stuff do so somewhat more at their convenience. Obviously completely taking the piss is no good - I purchased something and the guy said he'd send 3 days later and I hadn't heard anything for 10 days so a polite email with no response, then another a week later and another a week later (at this point I was thinking PayPal dispute though didn't communicate it in my msg). Anyway just over a month later bits turned up with extras and genuine apologies - all fine and glad I didn't get shitty! If it'd been much longer, after three well spaced polite messages, I'd have just started a PayPal dispute without notifying them I think.
yep, I always try to keep things amicable for as long as possible when stuff like this happens. Usually you still want to end up with the thing you’re buying and it tends to be the best way for that to eventually happen.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
