Hey everyone,

I've got a pending trade that's got me a bit concerned. Around the beginning of February, I began trade negotiations with another person here on Dakkadakka.
We worked out a deal, I traded some Orks for his Circle of Orboros Hordes army.
I sent my stuff around the 20th, and he confirmed he recieved it on the 22nd. We agreed to send it out at the same time, but he said he was falling behind because of Culinary arts school.

I sent him another PM, March 01, and He said he was still super busy with Culinary arts school, but he would send it the next day.

Finally, after waiting another week, I sent a 3rd PM, pleading with him to give me some kinda update and let me know exactly when he shipped and what the box looked like, and what address he sent it to, so I would know what to expect and when to expect it.

He hasn't replied and it's been almost 4 days since then.

Should I be concerned? I understand that people can get busy, but I'm a bit worried since it's been almost a month since we agreed to send it...I thought I was falling behind by mailing it around the 20th.

I guess the main question is, how often should I PM, asking for some kinda update?

Who was it you traded with?

It doesnt necessarily mean anything bad actually happend , but it helps some of us keep track of who to not deal with. Been busy is understandable , but if a person cannot take 1 min time to type a response , there is no excuse in the world to justify it.

Yes i understand your frustration . I tend to avoid any traders that cannot reply within 24 hours between each response . And i never trade with people that says they are going to be too busy to do blah blah.

The bottom line is
If someone is too busy to do a transaction , dont do it. No one should suffer due to a bad choice that he choose to take someone's items
and is too busy to send his part out. So in this sense i blame that guy.

Did you guys know Canada has a friggin desert?

depends how long his other PMs took. around 20 days passed since you sent it, so that would be a bit suspicous imo..

You're not playing the game like I play it...why aren't you playing the game like I play it?! O_O

Its user : backfromthedead isnt it?

Seems pretty dead to me still

Perhaps you can ask greenskinlynn and monstr369 and see if they have his phone number or something.

You are correct, Lunahound!!

How did you know?

I'm hoping it's just a matter of him being busy...but I'm still a bit upset that I haven't recieved it yet...because, aside from wanting to play that game, or perhaps trade it, I'm a bit anxious because....

1. He's not going to send it, though I don't think he's the type of person to rip someone off.
2. He's sent it, but it "dissapeared" off my front porch (because, yes, I live in a neighborhood where that could happen..if somebody wanted it)
3. It got lost in the mail (which seems unlikely, but is still possible, I guess...)

I hope it's in transit or he just hasn't sent it, but I REALLY hope he sends it soon. I sent him another PM because it's been 4 days since the last one. I'm guessing he's too "Busy" to check DakkaDakka, because as far as I know, Dakka doesn't send PM notifications to your email.

In regards to not doing a trade with someone who's "Busy"...well, I had no idea he was going to be busy. He even offered to send it a few days before I had all my stuff together, so I told him to hang tight for a bit before he did that, so we could both send at the same time. I figured he had his stuff all ready to go!
I'll contact the other people he's traded with too. Thanks Lunahound.

Seriously, how did you find out?

Not that I mind, and I remember asking about the trade, but I never recall posting his name

Okay that's cool

Do you think it would be completely un-reasonable to ask for Priority shipping and/or Delivery confirmation?

If I remember correctly, we agreed to ship the Monday after Valentines day and I thought I was actually falling behind because I shipped it later that week (probably 16 or 18th).
For the weight of my package, I decided to ship Priority..also because the Post office wouldn't let me use their tape unless I shipped it Priority.

So, I definitely think it's fair to ask for Priority and Deliver Confirmation or some sort of tracking number.

Wish I had known this was going to turn out this way...like I said before, he gave me no inclination that he would be Super-busy at Culinary arts school

Pat that askala, O-H-I hate this stupid state

No it is completely reasonable to ask for that type of delivery and Del. Conf. The problem is you have to ask that they do so before either of you ship because they might have wanted the same on their package.

Luna and Vindicator both give good advice on how to deal with this.

With regard to duration between PM's, a trader should NEVER let more than a day go in between responding. It's irresponsible and ultimately, suspicious behavior.

Just as an FYI, I'm going to ask a MOD to move this to the Swap Shop, and I'll edit it to be a Transaction Report.

Always use delivery confirmation when there is something going on. But no matter what type of deliver you chose , always keep the receipt as well.
He is already slow / way late on what he owes , any normal person would feel bad and be happy to comply.

Sorry to hear about this, Darkzephyr :-/

I almost always ask for priority mail with delivery confirmation. Also, if he stopped communicating at the very beginning, it might have been best to call the trade off. Perhaps he is just busy, so hopefully he will see this thread.

If you didn't mention it in the PM, I would tell him that you have posted a Transaction Report and give him a link to this thread, so that he can start to realize the seriousness of just sitting on it and not sending it (if that's what he's doing).

Great to hear it's been sent! If Darkzephyr can confirm he's received it (priority, so shouldn't be later than Wednesday) this could then be closed...

In most cases I agree that it would be only fair to request delivery confirmation from both sides before sending.
But, considering I sent mine immediately, kept him updated, and confirmed with him that he recieved it a few days later, while he had not even sent his out almost a month later (at the time of this post)...I don't think it would be Un-reasonable to ask him to throw an extra .70 into the trade to make sure I can stay updated on the package. Especially considering he works 12 hrs and goes to Culinary school, so it's probably difficult for him to check up on the package. At any rate, it seems things are going well now and he seems to have sent it via Priority Mail last Saturday.
From this point onwards, I beleive I should insist on Delivery Confirmation, especially if it's a transaction that's valued at more than $10-$15 of models.

Thanks, He was actually very quick and communicative, until after I sent the stuff. After that things slowed down and sometimes it would take a few Pm's before he replied.

I didn't even realize there was a transaction report until now. I finally made contact with BackfromtheDead and I can see he's also found this thread. Looks like everything is going to work out okay. Hopefully, I'll recieve in a few days and I'll let everyone know.

Keep us updated. If everything works out alright, we'll close this TR.

Also, note to everyone:

Delivery Confirmation is your friend. Not only does it give you incontrovertible proof that it gets where it needs to, it also provides tracking info! ALWAYS insist on it.
