    not sure if this is in the right forum.. so mods can feel free to move it.

    I purchased an item from a member here over 3 weeks ago. the member has had terrible communication with me and every excuse as to why it hasn't been shipped yet. I gave the member the benefit of the doubt after 2 weeks had gone by. but then have been blown off with more excuses as to why it hadn't shipped. I was told by the member that I would be provided a tracking # this time.. that was friday. I asked if it was going to ship on saturday priority.. no response.. no tracking # either. I am getting fed up. do I get on to his or her feedback and relay this to potential buyers from him/her?

    I haven't really traded on this site yet so i dunno if you can leave feedback or anything but i can say this you only have a month to file a claim with paypal so if you want to go that route do it soon.

    I guess that I am going to go that route then. should I still leave a negative feedback remark here if I receive it?

    if you get the item you're still allowed to give negative feedback, since it seems the seller hasn't really been living up to the promises.

    I received a message today saying that it shipped today and that I need to have a little patience. WTF.. I need to be patient..

    I am thinking about leaving a nice message in his/her sale thread!

    I agree, to hell with that. You paid, now he needs to get off his ass and ship the goods.

    Well maybe this post helped getting the toy shipped? but it is still good to make others aware in the case it happens again or if it has maybe happened before.

    If you actually do get the item, I would suggest leaving feedback stating you recieved it, but it wasn't shipped until 3 weeks after you paid for it. That way at least other members could know what they are in for, if they buy something from that member.

    Great advice here. Be honest in your feedback. No need to be out right mean with it, but laying out the story like this will make other buyers raise an eyebrow before going through with a deal.

    Yeah, ILoveDinobot got it right.

    Also, don't leave a message in the members sale thread. I believe that is frowned upon here. That's what the feedback section is for.
