It's never enough to make the majority of buyers happy. I mean if I'm spending $100's on an item, I'm not trying to get over someone a few bucks with fees or something.
Amen to this and to g transistor
about allowing some time to ship. For the most part, the members I've dealt have been very good and reasonable and have patience. Sometimes it works out that I can ship the next day and sometimes it takes me up to about 5 days to get it out, but I usually try to update and not stay out of touch. Life gets busy sometimes, I'm not a student anymore, and this isn't my full time job.
I've been good with International sellers for the most part too, but it seems it's the international ones that ask 5 days later where an item is more than the domestic ones. I guess certain individuals fail to understand that internation shipping via USPS priority can take in itself 5-10 days, then you have potential customs delays, and then add the fact that it can take me a few days to get the package together (usually all my buyers are notified via paypal or occasional PM when things are out the door) and that just takes some time.
