    Default Trade Me response time

    Not heard a word in 4 days, sent 2 emails.

    Is this normal, I say that as all my other trades have communicated with in 2 days.

    Not a good sign. Probably a bad egg. I think you have to give the trader 5 days to respond. After that you should probably contact Trade Me if the seller doesn't respond.

    I've had a few slow people. Some seemed to be deliberately doing it. Most got there in the end though.

    If it were not for the fact he is of the male gender, I think I would have asked for his hand in marriage, so pleasant has the experience been.

    If they're not in touch with me same day, I'd consider it "slow" by todays standards.

    I had one die on me once, well that;s was my conclusion. I was the buyer and I found out from his feedback that several people had also bought stuff and were waiting for account info, after 3 weeks I gave up, no money changed hands

    It's rude really......the auction closes, they win....so why then take days to respond? They know when it closed, they know the process, OK, straight away perhaps not, they may be at work....but leaving it longer than 24 hrs is just plain lazy.

    I agree, but pleasantness always wins me over.

    That's a bit harsh. There are innumerable reasons why a 'winner' may not respond immediately. Yes, it is polite to respond as soon as you can, but TM must have had reasons for suggesting 5 days. I think we should allow a 5 day gap between "polite" and "rude". Some TM folk don't have internet - they have to visit internet cafe or library to check. They may not be checking email every day. I've had sellers not respond for 2 or 3 days even after I've paid almost instantly with PayPal, but I don't see that as rude. Some folk over 65 are subject to life's slowing down events.
    Either go where you're looking or look where you're going!
