Sooo - just wanted to get some opinions here :giggle2:

What do you think is a reasonable amount of time to hold some Qs for someone?

1 day? 2 days? 1 week? 1 week+!?! :whistle67:

I would think 48 hrs would be enough.

If I see they haven't been online since the initial trade PM, then I'll wait two days. But if they have been online and still haven't written back, I'll give it only 24 hours.

48 hrs unless I say otherwise. If they're hot qs or I had multiple PMs, I specifically say "if I don't hear back from you within 24hrs, I will move on because I have other offers"

This is almost word-for-word what I was going to say. You can go to their profile to see when they were last online. If they've been online...and posting (especially if they're bumping up their ISO trade that we were working on), I only give it 24 hours.

I feel 24 hours, you snooze you lose. But that's just me.

24 hours if still in the inquiring phase...i would wait a little longer if in the actual trade process (she says x and i say yes but i didnt hear back yet).....

remember, do unto others as you would want done to you.

I would like to hold for 24 hours unless asked to hold for longer.
I don't mind to hold for up to 3 days but hate to hold that long and never hear back.

I agree

I do 48 hrs since I know I sometimes don't make the 24 hrs for whatever reason. If someone leaves their browser open with the page up - does it register as them being online even though they aren't there? But if it's very time sensitive trade for expiration dates or postmark dates then I'll state something.

Usually 48 hours since I know there are times I look at my pm's but they dont always register in my brain that I need to do something with them. LOL

Hoping you don't mean me too...:giggle2:

Seriously tho, I see if they have been online. If they have, I send another PM telling them they have 24hrs to respond. After that, move on down the road.:whistle67:

Thank you ALL for your opinionS :BigHand: Will keep that all in mind now ...


If I see they haven't been online since the initial trade PM, then I'll wait two days. But if they have been online and still haven't written back, I'll give it only 24 hours.

Sooo, if on.line & just don't respond.. I can move on!?!! cuz as cybilx10 stated, what if she's read the pm but just didn't respond? what then? Should we still hold?

And if not on-line, sooo, you've now held the q's for 3+ days? Is that fair to the Seller? As well, what is to stop the other side from then saying - "ooooh, I don't want"... cuz, at a certain point, we just don't know, right? We're kinda being held hostage... or is that the right phrase? :giggle2:



I feel 24 hours, you snooze you lose. But that's just me.

I wonder what part of this I'm gonna keep in mind now!?!! :whistle67:




you don't mean me do you.....:hysterical:

OH yeah BaBy - soooo you... I'm soooo gonna ignore u now :giggle2:
