How long do you wait for a response b/f moving on to another seller?

I contacted a seller about a listing to see if it's available and I received a response within twenty four hours saying that yes it was. I immediately responded asking for the PP addy saying that I could pay as soon as I get the addy. It's been two days and I haven't heard anything. Should I just write this off?

24 hrs is the most I would wait and sometimes less depending if something else comes for sale

Yeah, that's pretty much what I've done.

Agree with the op's.
That kinda thing irks me - I'm big on communication, and I always let everyone know what's happening with transactions.

If they're this bad at communicating when they haven't even gotten your money yet, imagine what it would be like when you pay?? I'd move on for sure.

Yeah, it stinks, it happened with two different sellers. I ended up buying two high ticket items brand new because of this.

I really would not have minded if I had not heard anything back from the beginning, I'd just assume that the item was sold or whatever, but to hear back and be told that it's available and then be left hanging? That's just rude.

Horrible seller! I would move on. If they want to sell, then they need to be available and quick to act with buyers. Sorry mama!
