    PayPal with royal receipt

    Hi all. I just purchased something from gumtree and paid via PayPal. He then sent me the receipt via royal mail all paid for etc online. He says he sent it today but it still don't show up on the tracking. It's suppose to be next day 1pm delivery? Should I worry?

    If he only sent it today it could take time to show up on the system, that's normal from my experience. Check again tonight.

    Once an item is sent at the post office, the tracking shows the time and date of when it was processed there, if it's special delivery (by 1pm next day) then the tracking will update at each step that the parcel moves (local depot, central depot etc)

    all it will show is posted, but not the address sent to.

    Doesn't even come up with being recieved? He's still in touch with me but he sounds odd. Told me he's posted it.

    gumtree is best for face to face pretty sketchy for anything else

    Royal Mail tracking is pants. I have had many things sent to me via them and often its been delivered BEFORE the site even shows it was received by them. You may be lucky and find it updates later today but usually the best you can expect will be overnight updating.

    How did you pay for it on Paypal? Friends and Family or Goods?

    Ah ok thanks.
    Yeah I agree with the face to face thing, it's just that it was miles away and plus I thought via PayPal I'm pretty safe anyway?
