Interestingly enough, I'm in the midst of a contract law class, and Lazygrae's hit it on the head. Even if you don't settle on a specific time frame, there is the legal concept of "reasonable amount of time" which is basically what most people would consider to be reasonable. The contract is invalid if the other party doesn't meet their end of the deal within a reasonable period of time - if they send you the stuff after that period has elapsed, you have no obligation to perform your originally agreed-upon part of the contract, because the contract is void.
