May be the instant gratification thing, but changing the culture is going to take a long time..The seller, once paid is a retailer, and if there is a problem, then you need to communicate with the buyer, as you now have his/her $ and his/her item, and it's your responsibility to assure him/her that you are not going to keep both-ever get the uneasy feeling after you buy something online from a private party? Unless there is communication-tracking.. etc. then the buyer doesnt' get reassured that they will get what they paid for, and things will usually go downhill from there unless you let them know what's going on.. A tracking # is like communicating with the buyer, they can (usually) see the item has been sent, so there is no more worries-(again usually)-I try and make sure the buyer gets the tracking info asap, and I usually ask for it after payment has been made..

just my --->
Well said !! Sometimes things come up with shipping a day later than promised,but communication is key.
