I sent two books to the same person, in the same package, with the same DC. Will I get one credit or two?

I believe that if it was a bulk order (both books on the same order and the same label), you will get 2 quick credits.  If it was 2 separate orders, you'll get the credit for the one whose label you printed with DC.  The other credit will come when that book is received.

Here is an extract from the Help Center on it:

Will a multiple-book (bulk) shipment sent with PBS-DC get Quick Credits for all the books?
Yes, if the wrapper is printed with the PBS-DC barcode as a "bulk wrapper". Since Delivery Confirmation is charged per piece, and not by weight, you need only use ONE barcode (costing $0.27 in PBS Money) to send a bulk shipment, and need add only 18 cents to the postage, no matter how much the package weighs.
The single PBS-DC barcode will contain information for all the books in a bulk shipment ONLY if the requests have been linked together by the requestor clicking Order More from this Member and submitting them as a bulk request.

* If the requestor submits the requests as multiple individual requests, these cannot be linked together after the fact.
* If this is the case, you will get 1 QuickCredit, and the rest of the books in the shipment will earn credits when they are marked received.

...there's more.....

Thanks. It came in as two requests from the same member, so sounds like I may get the 2 quick credits. Hope so!

What I meant was that the books seemed to be "together" in the request. Can't seem to say it right. Too early!

Yep, if it was a bulk request (ie, the ordering person used "order more from this member" button) then you get as many credits as there were books ordered for just one low DC price! One time I got a five-book order like that which I put PBS DC on, and was thrilled to see five more credits pop up the next day after sending the books at the PO....which averaged out to less than 6 cents per book for the PBS DC fee, and I think the total postage was less than $3 too, as they were all mass market paperback size. Can't do better'n that! Well, unless it was a six-book order! LOL

Edited because it's too early to be doing math...jeeeeeeeez! LOL
