I posted some stuff on Ebay the Friday before the 4th of July holiday weekend and everyone used the "buy it now" the very same day. Well the P.O. wasn't open on Monday and I didn't notice they even sold on Saturday.
Well I come back to my computer on Tuesday the 5th and everything is bought and paid for.
I wait for the Paypal to clear my bank account (three days) and sent the stuff out the following Monday Priority Mail. (Most places it will arrive in two-three days.)
Now a few bidders are totally furious with me saying they are gonna leave bad feedback because I didn't send it the instant I got the Paypal. I didn't even notice they ended until Tuesday the 5th, four days after the auction ended. I was on vacation as so many people are on the 4th of July.
I've been burned before with Paypal, I ship and then the bidder reverses the charges or their bank account denies the charge. (E-check) So I wait until that money is in my account, then shipped the following business day. I guess I shoulda sent it on Saturday, but I didn't realize they would get so damn freaked out.
I know when I buy stuff on Ebay it takes well over two weeks, sometimes three until I get it. So why are they freaking out over less than two weeks? (5 business days)
Am I a deadbeat?
(All this is because the holiday made for an extra long weekend.)
