Should I Pay First, Or Wait For A Reply

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I managed to successfully bid for 3 pens from the same seller on eBay and have send a requested total to see if he would be able to combine shipping to Singapore from Philadelphia. However, it has been more then 24 hours since the end of the auction and I have yet to receive any response. I normally pay within a few hours of the auction closing or immediately but this is the first time, I purchase that many items from the same seller at the same time. Should I just bite the bullet and pay now with International Shipping at USD$15 times 3 or wait abit longer to see a response? I understand people should be on their way home from the Washington Supershow so what do you guys think?

I would wait, maybe send another message saying you are still waiting for a reply.

That I know, I am painfully aware it is Monday Afternoon in the Eastern Seaboard, Headaches when working West Coast timing in my day job and Eastern timing on my other job. It is already 1:30am here in Singapore. I guess I would wait. After all the auction ended between 9 and 10am Sunday Eastern. I will followup with a message later in day. Thanks guys.

Hello Studiohead,

 

Remember that patience is a virtue. :)

 

It can also pay off, you're talking about paying almost $50 just for shipping! I would wait a couple of days and give the seller a chance to respond; he may have to check with his local post office to get the correct actual rate- and that can take some time. This is one of the reasons why I don't even offer international shipping on my e-bay sales- it's a real headache getting all of the different rates- and those website rate quotes can be "iffy."

 

I'd just relax and give the seller a little time... good things come to those who wait. ;)

 

All the best,

 

Sean :)

Be patient and wait a little longer. I know that waiting is unpleasant as I always immediately pay as well. You can send another email if you like; I have done that in the past.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
