Sending a Paypal payment should mean faster shipping, but some of our selling friends don't live close to their local Post Office and perhaps can only make it there once a week. I had a seller who had to drive 30 miles one direction from her home (thru the mountains) to get the cash from the bank to send my package and 50 miles the other direction (thru the mountains) to mail it at the Post Office. Needless to say these trips were not made in the same day (barely in the same week) and I chose to be patient and give her the benefit of the doubt.

On the boards we purchase items "sight unseen", but we also don't know the situation our sellers are in as far as family constraints, vehicle availability or how close they are geographically to their PO. Showing a bit of patience and compassion can keep our transactions smooth.

Some sellers come right out and add to their posting that they only go to the PO on M/W/F or every Thurs. When finalizing a sale, I tell a buyer "when I receive your payment, I plan to send the package within 48 hrs. letting you know it's on its way." Usually, I get it in the mail the same day I receive payment, but, occasionally, life happens and it's the full 48 hrs. before I get it mailed. If the seller says nothing about shipping time in the posting or reply, perhaps it would help to gently ask the seller how soon your package will be sent after payment is received.

Hope this helps and have a super-blessed day!
