A transaction was was canceled by PBS due to not mailing by the date.   If I happen to get the book and mark it received, will the sender get the credit for it?

 Or will I need to buddy the credit to them?

If you mark it received, they will get the credit.

Make sure that the system has not ordered another book for you and if it has make sure that you are giving the credit to the proper person.

This is the exact situation I'm in right now - the transaction times out today at 11:00 p.m. EST, I pm'ed the sender but haven't heard from her so I'm waiting for it to move to the trans archive so I can mark it received.

I'm just hoping the system doesn't kick my request over to another sender. If I mark the book as received, is there some lag-time where everything will be good and I won't end up getting a second book? It isn't the type of book I would have an heir & a spare . . . . .

That's a good point.  In my case, it's a wishlist book.  So it's just back on my WL, and I'm still #1.

You can put it on hold on your WL if you want to wait. 

If they didn't print the label then I would assume the book has not been mailed. If it was printed then I would PM them and ask and just say you will reorder the book (or unhold it on your WL) if you don't hear from them within a week and they won't get a credit if they had mailed it afterall.
