I want to ask my buyers and anyone else out there who has an opinion to please give me some input on this situation:
After you purchase an item online do you expect or want to hear personally from the seller that they have received your order?
I ask because I've been comparing the many different places that I have purchased items from online, from Amazon to Office Depot, and when I compared the different businesses I felt that Amazon was the most similar venue when comparing to Etsy and Artfire. On all of the sites when I purchase, the host site sends you, the buyer, an e-mail confirming your purchase. I have looked back through my purchases and I can't find any additional correspondence from the actual seller concerning the sale. That's to say I haven't heard from them if everything is going smoothly. If they have a problem with my address or there was a problem with the order, then I heard from them. Up to this point I didn't think it was necessary, but I am now curious to see what everyone else thinks.
If this interests you please leave a comment!
