where is the rule?

  1. on eBay that shows how long sellers have to ship?
    Anyone know?
     
  2. I've checked eBay but found nothing...
     
  3. I see people here quoting that Sellers have 7 days. . . need to know where that little nugget is on eBay!
     
  4. 30 days for the item to get to you...not sure about when they have to ship though
     
  5. The listing should state. A good seller will certainly ship within a week, if not sooner. I try to ship within 48 hours.

    How long have you waited? Has the seller responded to your enquiries?
     
  6. no, not a Seller's rule, EBAY'S rule.

    Just like no matter what a Seller says, eBay says a Buyer has 7 days to pay. . .
    Where is EBAY'S rule?
     
  7. I'm asking for a friend on an Oilily eBay group.
     
  8. I really have no clue :shrugs:

    I've been trying to find that just now, but no luck :confused1: All I found was the rule that you had to wait 10 days until you can file an item-not-received claim

    Might want to try live help :yes:
     
  9. I actually thought that the 7 day shipping timeline was PAYPAL's rule...that to be covered by the Seller Protection Plan, you had to ship the item out within seven days.

    I don't know where (or if) it might state that on Ebay.

  14. Are sellers required to ship items within any time frame? Posted: Dec-10-06 17:27 PST cwcreelcwcreel (337&nbsp(337 [​IMG]) View Listings | Posts: 2,357 | Report

    Sellers have 30 days to ship as per the FTC. You can not simply cancel, as the seller did not state they would ship sooner.

    You can explain this is a present and need to know they will arrive and ask if they are willing to let you out of the obligation, but they are not required to.

    Always check auctions to see if they state a shipping time, if they do not, they do have 30 days.
     
  15. is there a link to what you pasted?

    We, me and my friend from the group, are longtime Sellers & Buyers. . . we understand Seller's TOS and such, we just don't ever make people wait like she's been made to wait.
    She just wanted to send a link to eBay's rule to the Seller in case she got any flack frm them.
