How long to wait before opening a paypal dispute

18
Found 25th Nov 2008
I bought an item off hear almost 2 wks ago which I paid for by paypal.

I pm'd the seller last weds (a wk after I had sent the payment) to ask when they had posted the item. Their response was I'll do it tomorrow I dont get to the post office everyday.

So it is 2wks tomorrow since I paid for an item I have not got. Pm'd seller but they have not been online since day before yesterday.

Postman has just been but didnt have the parcel.

So do I continue to be patient and give the seller the benefit of the doubt?

I dont want to hang the seller if they are genuine but startin to lose patience!

When do you suggest I open a dispute?

No not mario kart ds.

I received that and I left feedback ages ago.

I pm'd the seller to let them know it had arrived but forgot to update their thread with the info.

Have now done so.

I paid by normal paypal not gift as the seller didnt request gift until after I had made the payment and as they didnt have any feedback I thought it was the best way to go.

No it wasnt done by pm.

I suppose I'm going to have to give you a link to the thread now so I dont get wrongly caught up on dealing by pm.

So reluctantly here is the link

Just to let you know that I received a refund today. The seller offered to post another GH to me on tuesday but Having logged into paypal I spotted the refund.
Not sure what happened as had no explanation but at least I got a refund.
So thanks to all of you for your help & advice
