        what is the avwrage time it takes to recieve payment through paypal and or check from the day of receiving the items

      • 07/02/2012 at 3:09 am

        We try to have paypal done within 24-48 hours of receiving material. 3-5 days to reveive a check. We always get sellers approval of final price before we make payment so that seller is clear in what he is getting paid for the total material load.
