weblordpepe: Just out of interest - I paid on the 6th way early on saturday morning. Its thursday afternoon now and it's not arrived yet.

Anything after Friday 10pm wont show up in many banks till Tuesday morning. Give him say, 2 - 3 days leeway from there, + 3 days postal travel.

A friendly email like "Hi, its Eugene here, I paid on xyz date for the Elvis wig, what day should I expect it here please?" would possibly help. (The above example will only work if your name is Eugene, and you bought an Elvis wig - not, you may need to change to suit.)

Sat - paid
Sun - wait         
Mon - processed
Tue - appears in sellers account
Wed - seller sees its there, packages item
Thu - seller gets to town and posts item
Fri - transit
Sat - transit
Sun - sits in depot somewhere
Mon - delivered to you by postie

Although its not ideal, the above is a perfectly reasonable scenario.

I too was impressed by speed of flashcards.co.nz service. Some TM sellers are good too. I wouldnt panic till a good 7 full working days have passed since payment made.

Hey tonyhughes

I bought an Axim X51v with 1GB SD card, BT Keyboard, VGA Cable plus other stuff and it took 3 weeks from time payment was received by the Trader to actually arriving and that was after I sent emails, emails and more emails and then sent it to Trademe Investigations team. So if you can get it with in 5 days of payment made you are already ahead...

Cheers

Yeah freitasm finally got that Axim so now have the Apache and the Ax here's what I got click: Here

Cheers

All
