I need to clear these books out also need the credits I had to pass up a few wish list books because I don't have credits. So if there is anything you see and you don't want 6 for 2 make a deal I'm open for any. Thnaks and Happy new year

I PM'd you on Jan. 5th and we agreed to a 6/2 deal. The next day I requested two books and you were going to send all six--but you cancelled the order!! My requests went through the system anyways, costing me a credit each for books I wouldn't have ordered without a deal. I received one of them today which is how I caught on. What happened? Why didn't you let me know you were cancelling??

Here's what happened for those interested. I like to follow up on my questions, problems, etc. for those searching forums for similar issues. If anything-good lessons can come from bad things that happen to others, right?

I don't know what happened, but you should have let me know you were cancelling. Today I got the dolphin book in the mail, it took me a while to figure it all out. When you cancelled, my requests still went through the system (without alerting me) so I was charged a credit each for the books I ordered from you. Not really fair, I only ordered from you to get a good deal and would not have ordered these books otherwise.

I have no idea what you are talking about. I didn't receive the credits so I don't know where they went. I only get the credits when you get the books and claim that you received them. I did let you know that I was canceling the order that something had come up and I wouldn't be able to send out any orders. You need to ask PBS where your credits went because it wasn't from the books I was going to send.

You don't owe me credits, I only meant that because you cancelled and I was unaware, my requests still went through and I got those books from other people at one credit per.
You did not let me know you were cancelling. Did you send a PM? If so, you should have record of it. Please check your personal messages and click the tab that says 'from me'. See if your cancellation email to me is there and please re-send it. Maybe you thought you sent it and didn't. Maybe it didn't go through-if that's the case PBS is at fault and I will let them know.
I'm not mad & you don't owe me anything, just wish this would have worked out especially since I barely wanted these books. I saw your post saying you needed credits so I thought why not take the deal. You could be more apologetic since it was your fault, even if you did send a PM that I didn't get.
Thanks anyways, and I hope things are okay for you.

How is it my fault that you ordered books that you didn't want from other people. Personally I don't order more then one copy of a book from multiple people. That shows that it is not my fault but yours alone. This is ridiculous that because I canceled the order you feel you need to blame me because you ordered the same books from other people. Obviously you don't pay attention to what you order or you just like to create drama when things don't go as planed or doesn't go your way. Maybe this will be a lesson learned not to order the same book from more then one person at a time.

I think i understand what Melissa is saying since i beleive the same thing happened to me.


I ordered a book with a deal of 3 for 1 .........the sender cancelled the order becauce of my RC........the order went to another member ......i didn't know what was going on since the original person said she cancelled but i was still seeing the order for the book.

I then realized it was a different person and when i pmed them explaining what happened they refused to cancel the order.i got the 1 book for 1 credit instead of the 3 books for 1 credit like i originally wanted.

Sucked but i just let it be.........i beleive the sender has a right to cancel because of RC,but maybe PBS should not auto fill the order from another member.


Not saying anyone here is right or wrong,but just wanted to post what i think happened with Melissa when her original order was canceled.
