Manners questions when selling dipes???
 
What would you consider the appropriate amount of time to wait for a response?
Say you've had people show interest in the diapers you are selling. They've picked out their colors and they seem settled on the price. You request their e-mail for invoice and...wait 2 days? I'm a patient person, and have no problem waiting. However, what if someone else wants those dipes now, and still no response? What is the appropriate amount of time I should wait?

I give buyers till the end of the next day (and let them know) unless weve made other arangements.

I don't give out my paypal unless they say... yes, i want it. Then I'll wait a day or two before I send another pm asking if they still want it. It can be frustrating because I send payment right away the same day if I want a diaper.

Sounds fair to me. What about special consideration for weekends?

I usually send payment as soon as I get the address. I try to wait a day or so as a seller and then message them again. If they don't respond, I move on.

I just recently had a mama ask me to wait a week or so for her to sell some things to buy a wallet I had for sale. I said okay, and then she messaged me like a week and a half later asking for my PP addy, which I give her... And never hear from her again. I pmed her a few days later, I know she read the PM and no response. It's just so rude - I don't care if you've changed your mind, but I'd appareciate being told. I will never hold something for someone again, tell ya what! /rant

I think waiting 12-18 hours after replying to a pm is reasonable. Honestly if I am wanting to purchase something I will check my messages several times a day. Even if I am working I can still check back within 18 hours. It only takes a minute to Check if I have received a message.

Now if the mama said in her pm I won't be able to check back for 24-36 hours or whatever because of a lack of Internet access then I can see waiting longer.

I totally agree

Thanks ladies, that's kind of the conclusion I came to. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't being unfair.
