How long after purchase of item should you expect item to be shipped? Not items that need special shipping ( crate or oversized boxes) Smalls that would fit in oversized envelope.

Please use For Sale forums to sell

Please - NO offers to Buy or Sell in this forum category

Statements such as, "I'm thinking about selling this." are considered an offer to sell.

I try to ship all of my stuff out that day or the next day. I would say anything faster than 3 days is acceptable.


FREEDOM oil items wanted.

I ship the next day after payment. Most go priority , so the buyer usually receives the item within 4 days of payment.
Unless there is a holiday or Sunday involved.
I would say a week is plenty of time unless it takes special packing.

I usually try to ship the next day or so, but you also have to face the fact that some people sell so much that they only ship one day a week. Or they may live in a place where they actually have to go to the post office to even mail a letter. I know that seems out there but it still happens.


Originals only for me. Always looking for Simpson oil, Super A, and MFA oil cans and globes.

I think, it depends on who you are dealing with. Most businesses and e-Bay sellers clearly stipulate their shipping times. Most private sellers, that sell regularly are set up to ship everyday and are more efficient and have a system in place.

On the other hand there are those like me. I don't like packing or shipping items simply because I'm not set up for it and don't do enough of it. Therefore it is always a chore and takes me a while to get it done. For me packaging and shipping is very time consuming and is one of the reasons why I don't sell on e-Bay or the web.

Being aware of this; when I buy items, I'm a lot more lenient with sellers. Most of the items I buy are collectibles and I buy them for my pleasure/fun and try not to allow them to create stress in my life. For me that would defeat the purpose of collecting.

Marky if its first class or priority they have to move it no matter what. I don't think USPS will stop Sat. delivery it will cost to much in OT.on Monday. Piece is coming from Indiana.
