Link us to his feedback so we can see what's up.

The funny thing about shipping is this... some people will freak if they don't get their stuff in a day or two.

Sometimes we sellers aren't sitting at the post office waiting to ship stuff out. For some it requires an entire afternoon of packaging, driving there, waiting in line and other things. for me I have top plan it on my day off, sometimes that means it's only a few hours after payment is received, sometimes it's five days. Then it takes 2-7 days from that point on for transit.

So a week - week and a half after payment is good, any day after a week and a half is when you should start to email the person.

he seems like a cool seller! i would trust him! just seems to have a few shipping mishaps!

I'd probably bid also. If your still unsure, email the guys and ask him about it. If he wants your $$$ then he shouldn't have any problems putting your fears to rest.

Just ask him when he usually ship's. It's easy for people doing e-bay as a business like my brother or retail stores with acess to UPS or USPS. What ****es me off is sellers who demand payment right away and wait to ship for a week or two.

It's also important to look at who left the feedback. I bought from a gentleman with one negative recently. Turns out the guy who left the neg is a jerk who negs anybody for the slightest reason and frequently claims not to have received items. It'd almost be an honor to get a neg from him. In fact, I chose BIN just to make it up to the unfortunate seller.

Also, neutrals such as "Ordinary transaction. I got what I wanted, nothing special" should also not count against a seller. I have to admit, I left a neut or two like that when I first started eBay, until I understood that a neut is more like a D+ than an A-.

This guy looks pretty good. Despite a couple delivery problems, he's considerate enough to leave grateful replies to positive feedback he receives.
