When I was offered and accepted a wishlist book this afternoon and  clicked on the "order more books from this member,"  the message said that the member had no books posted in the system.  Then when I clicked on her profile, it said that this member's account has been either closed or suspended.

So what happens now?  I have this book sitting there on the "books I ordered" page along with the standard "waiting for member."

Will it just time out if the member's account has truly been closed/suspended and then my credit will be refunded? 

Thanks, Jan

It could be a temporary suspension while the Team discusses something with the member.

It will time out in 48 hours  5 days if the member does not come back to the account. If it is a book that you don't want to wait 48 hours  5 days before getting back in the Wish List line, you can always send in Feedback and ask them to cancel the transaction on the sender's end if it is a permanent suspension. They've done that for me before.

Oops, edited to fix time lines. Multi-tasking is not working well for me tonite!

The member has 5 days to return and accept the request. If she doesn't do that, then your credit will be refunded and you'll be put back on the WL in your previous position.
