(OK - never mind - I guess it just took the system a little bit to 'catch up' and process the multiple-book orders --- I just now saw the extra credits show up, so all is good!)


I just mailed out a bunch of books --- two packages contained multiple books going to the same person.    I used PBS printed postage & DC, so I got instant credit once they were mailed.

On the multiple book packages, I received 1 credit for the entire package --- will I get the additional credits once the other member has received the books & marks them received?   Or am I out of luck because I mailed the books in one package?   

This is my first time using the PBS postage on multi-book packages...  I'd hate to think that I lost the extra credits, it would have been worth it to pay add'l postage to mail them each in a seperate wrapper if that was the only way to get credit for them.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but as I said, it's my first time running into this.

When it puts them on seperate labels like that and you use the quick credit or DC-it only gives you the instant credit for the book that you printed the label/DC.  You'll get the credits for the others when they are marked received

It only does a bulk label when the requestor orders the books all at once using the Order More From Member button before finalizing the order. If they make the request or accept a WL book and go back later to add more then it puts them on seperate labels.

These were all on the same label, requested all together.   That's what threw me a curve - if they had been seperate labels & I had "combined" them myself, I could understand it working like you said.    But they were one single label covering multiple books ordered at the same time.

But it's all OK now - for whatever reason, the extra credits didn't show up right away, but appeared about 5-10 minutes later.   Thanks for your response!
