    Hey everbody, i bought a sweatshirt on ebay 8 days ago and payed with paypal. The guy had great feedback and was selling alot of sweatshirts brand new. I got an e-mail Monday that said it had shipped. Shouldnt it have been here by now? I am prly over reacting but this seems like its taking longer then usual and i havent got a hold of him in the last couple days.

    Actually you are overreacting because generally something like this may take 5-10 business days depending upon how it was shipped. The cost of shipping is no longer an indication as to how it was shipped because people ship things for $3.00 parcel post and then charge $20 shipping.

    eBay isn't nearly as fun as it used to be.

    Good luck and be patient.

    Gotta agree with Jessica. eBay has its pros but fast is not one of them. And eBay sellers rarely use particularly fast shipping methods unless they say they will....Because the cost comes out of their bottom line. If the shirt shipped domestically, it's probably coming through government postal service (and not 1st class), and depending on where the two of you live with respect to each other, yes, just as Jessica said, it could take two weeks....

    i agree with the above posters. people dont care how long it takes to get to you once they have your money. but if they have good feedback and said they sent it... it should be there soon.
