Do trading deals expire if I do not reply?
As illustrated each deal has a timer, this means that you must update your partner or take an action within that time-frame. If you do not do so, then the deal will expire.
Examples of valid actions would be: posting a chat confirmation, negotiating on the deal, updating the offer, and either accepting or declining the deal.
