DS ettiquete

I have never sold anything before on DS. i have something listed now. Is there etiquette or official rules on how to handle interest? Basically I have 2 people interested. the first responder asked for more info (but did not give a definate "I want" or as for pp address) and the second asked for my pp address. So... what do i do? I provided the additional info to the first responder and am waiting- thats what I should do right?

Re: DS ettiquete

That is the courteous thing to do but you don't have to. I have had plenty of people ask for more info and then never hear from them again. I normally wait till they check the message and if they don't respond soon after that I move on. That's just me though. I am sure lots of mommas have their own ways of handling these situations.

Let the second mama know why you are waiting to get back to her.

Tell first mama.. "I have another interested buyer, please notify me of your intentions by x date."

Then tell second mama you are waiting to hear back from first person and let her know that if first person backs out, then you will sell it to her, but you'll let her know either way.

If first mom doesn't get back to you by your deadline, sell the item to second mama.

That's how I've handled it in the past.

God bless!
