Question about shipping etiquette?

So is there a time frame to get things in the mail? I generally ship things the next day thanks to Pay Pal and a nice mail man who can pick things up and most things I've bougt off here have been shipped quickly.

I can understand a few days, or notes saying "I only ship on Fridays" (or whatever day). But waiting a week or more (payment was funded-- so no wait to clear)?

I just wanted to see what the general feeling is on that.

No we cannot tell members that they have to ship out their items by a certain date. Sorry! It's totally up to the seller as some work and don't have time to go to the PO and don't use paypal to ship from home.

Best thing you can do is ask the seller before buying when they will ship it. I never buy things I want right away until I ask if it will be shipped w/in a certain period of time. If they can't ship w/in a couple of days I pass. If I don't care when I get it I will buy no matter when the shipping will be done.

Also, any ?'s regarding transactions/feedback/etc go in the section at the bottom of the forum index called "Transactions & Feedback Disscussion" or something like that. LOL

ETA: some more stuff....I post then think of things I could add! LOL

You can move this if it's appropriate there. Or actually since I got the information I needed this could be deleted.

Yeah you can change the title to "delete - answered".

But, if you leave it you can get other ppl opinions so it's up to you!

I think most mama's ship within a day or two.

If its wool the item might need to dry before sending, which could add 3-4 days before the item ships.

Re: Question about shipping etiquette?

Hi mamas! I usually state in my post that I can only ship on Saturdays. It's only because I work 9-5 during the week, have 14-month old twins, have to go over the border into the U.S. to ship (faster, cheaper) and make it there during business hours to use the post office. The only time that I can break away is Saturday mornings!!! lol It's impossible to do it during business hours during the week, and sometimes due to border (bridge) traffic I cut it close on Saturdays! Most mamas understand. I can ship from Canada right away, but can't guarantee when the item would reach the mama. Much faster to wait until Saturday! lol
