1 week from the time I sent in my money order. Send in a money order and there will be no problems. I can't believe how many times I've said this in one months time. Do a search.
I know what he was asking. I just wanted to be sure the OP wouldn't use a check because that does take upwards to a month. There is quite a strong relationship between the method of payment and how long it takes for the books to arrive.Maybe you should re-read what OP asked; because the author asked how soon he should expect them to arrive because he was hearing otherwise.
Not, what the best method to pay for them.
It shouldn't make a difference at all. Mistakes like that mean little when the person depositing them is familiar, the company is reputable and the dollar amount is normal. At least that's what my sister told me when she worked at a bank. It seems like common sense prevails in banking....that is, outside of real estate lending.
