I'm making my first sale in classifieds; just mags, but what is an appropriate time to wait till you go to next buyer? Gentleman said he would check his email tomorrow ( to check the PayPal info I sent him).i want to keep a good rep. Thanks

Looks like they've since been bought and paid for?

Yes. I was just asking in general. Great having a forum like this.

I'd say 24 hours is an expected maximum timeframe to secure a sale and payment. If I don't get good communication within that time I'm taking the second bidder and alerting Para.

Around here, an "I'll take it" is looked upon the same as a man looking you in the eye and shaking your hand on a deal. It's the gold standard.

24 hours isn't feasible if the buyer doesn't use Paypal. I refuse to use it, preferring USPS money order, certified bank check or good ol' cash. I think payment within 7 days is generally acceptable as long as there is good communication between buyer and seller. Payment should be prompt, no excuses. Shipping should be prompt, no excuses.

Para covers the topic pretty well in the sticky at the top of the classifieds...

To be clear, I was not saying "receive" payment in 24 hours, I was saying communication after an "I'll take it" to make arrangement for payment.
