    I know I just went through this. Guy was selling a bunch of Maxx parts, I swooped in, got them for a steal. Seller went that route and I finally got them almost two weeks later. In the meantime, two days after that, I bought some more parts, got them almost two days before, the original purchase of Maxx parts. I think I saw those parts on my daily Ebay sweep, nice lot of parts lol.

    Lol, no kidding always a good day. Just pulled my trans apart and replaced the primary gear, missing 3 teeth. Good thing there was no grease in there, they would have stuck in it and circulated up in the others, wiping them out also. You might appreciate this, I had that emaxx trans, took apart an old Craftsmen 19.2 volt cordless drill and slammed the motor on it. Hooked it to the car battery to test it lol. I call it the parts killer. Not in any big hurry to put it in lol.

    It' because so many whiners on ebay want shipping either for free or as little as possible.

    I also heard from people I trust that buyer's have thrown fits over shipping & shipping cost, then make false claims to ebay over it when the seller refuses to eat the shipping.
    It's why you now see "if you don't agree to the shipping charges don't bid" in the terms.

    I would rather pay a little more & get my parts fast then have to wait on them.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    LiPo? Naw NITRO!!

    Sometimes it's because the seller didn't get what they wanted for the item, so they cheap out on shipping. I caught a seller lieing awhile back. Bought and paid for the item on a Sunday, i always pay immediately. Got a tracking number Monday afternoon. Checked the tracking number Wednesday, still hadn't been checked in at post office. I turned around that day and emailed the seller, he promised it would go out Thursday. Friday, it finally went out. In a case like this, the best the seller can hope for on feedback, is a non response from me. I paid for faster shipping, probably more than I should have. He even withheld his feedback, waiting to see if I would bang him on mine. Kind of like a form of blackmail. I have heard Ebay bases fees on feedback?

    i usually use 1 of 3 places(if i can) on eBay..The main one i use is located 2 hours from me and are usually really Good.... I have been buying small orders from them for a while. Well Monday i decided i was taking the plunge on a $100 order. Well the company really screwed around on this order In past orders if i order say on a Monday I see it Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. so i emailed them Wednesday when no shipping info was added said it was going out that day... Needless to say got it on Saturday Finally. I am not sure if i should bring it up to the seller again? Maybe just leave it alone? I honestly don't know what to do...
    IMO that is unacceptable 5 days to ship something to me when i live less than 2 hours away?

    I would just let it go. Any number of things may have caused this. I always try to order no later than Sunday. Seems if I order on late Monday, it never ships before Wednesday. Maybe I'm at the end of the line from them being slammed from weekend orders?

    Yeah but alot of companies take 24 hours or more to process an order. So that puts it up into Tuesday, then depending on how fast they package it, could be Wednesday before it's actually shipped.
