How long to wait until asking if an item has shipped?

I bought some yarn on spots on the 22nd. The label was printed by the seller on the 23rd but I haven't see any updates to the tracking at all.

Should I ask her if she's shipped or is it too early?

DC is not tracking so yo may not see anything on it until it is at your door. Does it say that the PO has it or is it still waiting to be brought to the PO?

Personally, I'd just ask her nicely if she's shipped it yet.

I didn't end up asking because I hate doing that. There was finally an update that it is in a sort facility in my state. But no other updates besides the label had having been printed. Now that I think of it, I think that has happened with some packages I have sent before. I am just more paranoid about spots transactions than ds FSOT for some reason.

Something is up with the usps, I bought a dipe on spots last week, the dc# never updated and the diaper arrived safe and sound. I still run the dc and it still says the usps was electronically notified to expect a package. Someone at the usps isn't doing their job imo.

Keep an eye out, you should have yours this week since it was sent last week. If it don't arrive by friday, I'd start looking into it more. You said the dc has a status now, so it is moving, just slowly.
I have a package coming, from my same state, priority, it's been on the move for 3 days now, very weird but it is moving, finally out for delivery today.
If the dc never updates or you haven't gotten a dc#, I'd email the seller after 5 days have past with no package showing up.

I usually wait 4days and ask by the end of that day. I waited a week before and the mama had forgot to mail it. I knew she was honest though bc she is a well known WAHM.
