How long do you usually wait for a seller to ship?

I found that some people had waited 10 days (in older threads) but they've had *some* sort of contact with the seller. The seller hasn't replied my message ( I know it's only been 4 days since I won the item) but I noticed that they haven't actually had any feedback since Jan5 2012, there's no notice on their shop saying that they'll be out of town or anything.

Not sure how long I should wait before doing anything ?

Thanks!

ETA: not that their feedback necessarily means anything but it's just that prior to Jan5th, the seller seems to be selling quite often.

Jessica, it's fine.. It happens so often. I paid for something recently as well and asked the seller to post the items asap, I contacted them twice. They didn't reply at all, although the combined postage was added promptly after I had requested a new invoice. Later on I noticed it said *shipped* on my ebay page, and today I got a notification on my Paypal email also saying that the items were shipped.. well.. don't know.. It has been 4-5days.. It varies.. probably, your item was sent out already, anyway, only seller knows and he is keeping it to himself for some reasons.

Maybe they don't print postage online and just haven't updated with tracking. I have noticed lately, that the shipping policies of some seller has changed to 5 days after cleared payment with Exp shipping. That seems like forever to me, so I am attempting to avoid the sellers with these terms. What is the seller's policy?

The Seller is not required to ship within the time you are experiencing. (I wanna say that they are required to ship within 7 days but according to the Selling practices policy, they have even longer) It's in their best interest to ship sooner so their stars don't get dinged, but don't be surprised if they have not shipped yet and it doesn't make it in time.

I find that many Seller's do not give any kind of notice for shipping (which is weird because even at the volume I sell, I personally message each buyer once their item has shipped and then also update tracking so they have access to it). And many sellers never enter the tracking number so there is no way to see if it has shipped or not without actually asking them. They may very well have already shipped it but just haven't updated anything.

I don't think that 4 days without ship notice or communication is too odd at all. Have you sent a message asking if it has shipped?

Yup I've messaged the seller already and in the listing, it says he'll ship 2 business after cleared payment and I paid right away. I wasn't sure what the policy was for eBay (thanks for the link Amber). I only found it odd because I looked through the listings and feedback dates for his sales and most of the buyers have received their packages (most were US buyers) within 2 weeks (which is the standard time for expedited shipping).

Thanks for everyone's input, I'll just wait it out

Maybe none of his items have sold for the last couple weeks so there isn't any new feedback? You can run a search for his completed items. Then again, sometimes people just neglect to leave feedback.

Hopefully he has shipped it since he stated that he ships within 2 business days. Maybe he just hasn't updated tracking.

I ran a search and all of them came back as sold the same day I won my item. There are actually quite a fair number of them sold. He's probably just behind on shipping then I guess. Hm , one of them does say that seller ended it (Feb 5 at 17:58) and there's one that says "This listing was ended by the seller because the item was sold." and 18:06 same day. I have actually messaged him prior to bidding on the 3rd to which it wasn't replied to. Also in Oct I had asked him about more pictures of an item I was interested in then and he replied the same day. So I just found it a bit odd that he hasn't replied yet

Hopefully
