since I brought seven books into the PO with PBS D/C. The clerk scanned all of them. Yesterday, 3 of the quick credits showed up. The other 4 quick credits have not shown up yet. Every other time I use PBS D/C ALL the quick credits show up at the same time. What do you think happened this time?

They may not have downloaded the scans to their own computer server for whatever reason, or they didnt get uploaded to the PBS server. Sometimes they dont show up for a day or two. Sometimes not until they are scanned somewhere along the way. I have had this happen, though rarely. My PO doesnt always scan the ones I put in the bin. They are often scanned at the Bulk Sort Center in Memphis.

Check the USPS site to see if the scans are there. Once you see them there, give PBS that night to get it uploaded. If it doesn't show up the night after you see them on USPS.com, send the info on the scan into the Team and they will catch the system up. I've had my FC and MM show up in different batches for some strange reason.

I can often find them at USPS a day before before PBS.  Like the data gets loaded in batches rather than right away.
