Default Reasonable amount of time you expect to have an online order delivered?

If you guys order something online, in stock, how long do you expect to wait for delivery IN FULL. I want to know what others think so I can decide if I'm being unreasonable or not.

Without going into detail. Smallish items, shipped from Florida to Georgia.

Depends on the item, its weight, how it is being shipped. Generally speaking I expect delivery within the timeframe the seller gives me when I order.

What did the shipper/seller tell you? Same day shipping? USPS, UPS, Fed Ex, standard, express, two day, etc?........... Too many variables.

It was a pretty standard order, I didn't ask how long shipping would take, thats why I am asking what people think is reasonable. I would imagine that UPS, FedEx, and USPS shipping times are pretty similar one state away.

From Florida to Georgia? Small items? 2-3 days for ebay or amazon, 4-5 for a private transaction. I would be on phone if it took more than 10 days either way, unless other conditions were agreed upon upfront

Some companies take days to ship an item. Transit time for UPS and FedEx is online, that should be one day ONCE SHIPPED if they make the cutoff that day.

A good company will specify that they take x days to pick and pack.

Amazon has intentionally set unrealistic expectations to drive everyone else out of business in their quest for world domination.

It all depends on the company / individual you're dealing with. If you ordered from the (small) company I work for before 3pm and we have it in stock you'd have it in two days, not counting weekends. If it isn't in stock you'll have an email with a rough ETA by the end of the day. My order at PSA has been sitting at "processing" since Monday, I'm OK with that as they're a much larger company with a much larger inventory and more orders to fulfill.

Florida to Georgia should take no longer than 3-5 days.

In stock seems to mean there is a quantity available at a warehouse that are not accounted for yet. So if you are in NY and the seller is in NY but the warehouse that has it in stock is in Houston ,, I have a wild hunch , you will be waiting a while.
