I'm not asking for myself since since I neither sell nor buy on ebay but someone (on another forum I frequent) mentioned this as the reason her seller gave her for not shipping her item not right away.
thats what I said. I don't know this person well enough to side email her to tell her such but at the same time I don't want to come off as a know it all because well...I don't know it all when it comes to ebay.
"a long "buy it now" period.
I don't think that's an option" (that was me)
"It is an option. I checked the listing and it was on a 15 day "buy it now". I'm guessing that means the listing is up for 15 days or until someone buys it? That's what I assumed anyway. I really need to get on top of learning my way around ebay."
