I have a 5 volume boxed set that I would like to post; however, I would prefer to not split the set but keep it together.  Any recommendations?

this is from the help docs:

 

How do I post my 'boxed set' of books?

If each of the books bears a unique ISBN, you can Post each as a separate entity

  • this way, you will earn a credit for each.

If the "box" holding the boxed set bears an ISBN, you can post with that number, BUT

  • this way, you will earn only ONE credit for the SET.

There is not a way to post the books individually yet require one member to take all of them and award you all of the credits for the one bulk request.

If you do post the books individually and want to send them all to one member:

  • you can start a topic in the Book Bazaar Discussion Forum to advise members that you have a boxed set.
  • Another member may be glad to learn of this and request all of the books from you using the bulk request "order more books from this member" feature.

I would offer a deal  in the forums so you can get multiple credits, but still keep the set together.  I have the same issue when i offer a boxed set.

Kicker -

There is a discussion thread titled Multiple Listings, Same Author in the Book Bazzar- you can post there and indicate you want to keep the set together and maybe offer a deal, such as 4 books for 3 credits.

Another idea is to just post the first one in the series and then when it is accepted by someone, PM them and tell them you have the whole set available. Chances are they will want the rest of them as well and you can work out a deal. I just did that with a set of 3 I wanted to keep together. I was getting no bites on the WL Multiple thread or the Paranormal thread for over a month. Then when I posted just the first one in the series into the system, the person who accepted it was thrilled that I had the next 2 books as well and I did get 3 credits for the 3 books. Plus she took another one from me as well so I was very happy to save the postage.

Good luck!
