Okay, so I clicked a “buy it now” button on an item (Pikmin for the Gamecube) and immediately paid through paypal the price of the item and shipping which I confirmed through an ebay message.
That was Monday, 6 Oct.
To date, I haven’t received any news about the item, and the seller hasn’t responded to any of my 3 messages asking him about when it’s going to be shipped, for an update, etc. He doesn’t seem like a flake - his rating is about 2200, and he’s got 98% positives, and most of the comments look good.
I’m getting a little twitchy, though. This whole “no communication” thing makes me nervous, and I’m thinking about clicking on the “no delivery” button. I’m really hesitant to do so, because I don’t want to screw him out his money, and I can’t really afford any negative feedback - I’ve got 4 ratings so far, and I don’t want to get blacklisted.
