If they are the only provider of the solution or feature you want, your choice is 'How important is it to you?"

In the world of service providers there is rarely only one choice. I'll be changing SM dashboards and will have not less than 3 to entertain.

The provider you have contacted has given you a hint of what your future may hold. Move on. Clearly the left hand and right hand are attached to different bodies. Hmmm, sounds a lot like a real estate agent TEAM.

But, as a business owner yourself, you would appreciate knowing where all your customers are disappearing to.  Maybe,  this owner is unaware there's a problem. 

You have already waited to days too long. Time to go to plan B.

I'm with everyone else.  I'm not sure I actually "time" it... but I would hope for a same-day response (depending on what time I actually reached out)... but if I don't get a response by the next business day... I'm already reaching out to others.

It ain't personal... it's bid-ness.
