    Always use email/text messaging when doing deals unless you really trust the seller. Leaves a paper trail in case things get ugly, meanwhile, phone calls leave he said she said as the only evidence of communication

If he hasn't answered an email where you requested this information, most websites have phone numbers, which are typically better for reaching people who don't sit at their desks all day.
    Yes I have explained to him a few times that I wasn't receiving any confirmation email. He said he would send it personally a few days ago, since it's automated, however I didn't receive it. I actually just received a response from him and he sent me the information I needed. I have to email another account and schedule delivery. There must have been a computer glitch or something for me not to receive the automatic email, I have checked my spam folder and everything. Oh well I am just glad I have the information now and I feel a lot better about the whole situation.

    I agree with you when it comes to negotiating the actual sale. However, if you can't trust someone enough to call them as a follow-up to an email you sent, asking for an email confirming ship date, then you should not be doing business with them.

    To the OP - I'm glad it looks like everything is working out.

    If you have to ask for a confirmation of sale almost a week later, then IMO...I don't want that person to take my money

    OP, glad it seems to be working out and was a simple computer glitch. If there appeared to be an issue, I would have called/texted to confirm. I know it gets old sometimes, but it never hurts to ask again. Sometimes questions can get buried in a long winded message and the seller may have simply forgot to answer it. I think we've all been guilty of this at one time or another.

    Eh, these paper trails are worthless a lot of the time when it comes to a big name or popular breeder. I've had problems with a few breeders and always ended up being the one on trial thanks to the fanboys if I had anything to say, even when I provided a "paper trail" and other such "proof". Never hurts to have it, I suppose.
