I made a 2 for 1 deal with someone, but only 1 book arrived.  What do I do?

I have my PM to him stating the books in the deal.

My guess is it was an honest mistake. It happened to me once and I PM'd the girl and asked her if she sent the books separately. She apologized and said she must have messed up because she no longer had the second book (my freebie) I had ordered. She kindly gave me back my credit.

Check your transaction achive as well--make sure the person who sent you the book is the one you made the deal with.  If for some reason the person you requested it from canceled or didn't answer the system would hand the request to the next person who had the book, who has no idea about the deal you cut.  Also make sure you requested it from who you think you did--if you accidentily put your request into FIFO instead of a specific person's shelf, the person making the deal would not have gotten the request.

I actually forgot to send the book because i go by my PM's to keep track of deals. That particular person did not PM me she posted her request in the Bazaar only and I forgot about it.  So please remeber to PM the person holding the sale! She Pm'd me and told me and I sent it to her. :)

I also  goofed recently. I had run a 2 for l sale, and had several people respond plus I sold a couple in the meantime.            One person wrote and asked me what happened to the second book.  I guess I gave it to the wrong person as it no longe existed, so I offered her another one.  

 

I FIND IT FRUSTRATING, though, when a deal is posted, you pm the person, and days and days go by and suddenly you receive a book from someone else. I watch this close now - if 4 days goes by and no response, I just cancel the order.  I can't understand posting a deal then not at least acknowledging it, but it has happened to me several times.
