As a buyer, I've always been contacted by the sellers first. As a seller, I have always made sure to contact the buyer first. Perhaps it was my mistake in assuming this was normal etiquette.

I had started with a fresh PM, not the one which had been used to contact the seller during the sale as in inquiry about whether or not they had certain other items to add to the order. I have just now sent another PM, quoting the previous one and explaining that I was doing so to make sure they hadn't accidentally removed themselves from the previous PM. I'm fairly certain this is not the case, however, because it tells you at the bottom of the PM when someone has removed themselves.

Guess if there is no answer to this PM and no one has any other suggestions, I'll just forget about it and move on.

It sucks, but sometimes sellers back out of deals. Its happened to me 3 or 4 times.

You're welcome to blow it off, but this is what the PL is for. Put him up for inclusion in the list and see what happens.

Even if it doesn't rise to including him on the PL, you at least let the other members here know if they hit the in his sales threads, you might not actually ever get a book \(thumbs u

Thats info i'd like to know when looking thru a sales thread \(shrug\)

Agreed. Give the seller the appropriate time to respond. If still no response, out the seller. The PL is for both bad buyers and sellers.

I think the seller should be outed so others can benefit from your experience. Goal of this thread is more about minimizing issues going forward (atleast that's how i view it!)

DEFINITELY!

When i hit the , i expect to receive the book. Thinking you already have it, you can pass on another copy, a different book, whatever only to find out 30 days later that the seller has decided to just blow it off and not sell.

That certainly isnt cool in my book and would be a seller i'd avoid. If i buy something, i expect to receive it \(shrug\)

What would be an appropiate time to wait to receive an invoice? How many ( semi nagging ) PM's should be sent without an answer before bringing it up here?
