Subject: Can I cancel an order after they've accepted?

I very politely asked a member if they'd do a 3 for 1 deal, where I'd order 7 books with seven credits, then pick 14 to go along, plus I asked for one extra book. So 22 books for 7 credits. At first they seemed unsure. I explained how it would save shipping to send so many to one person. I asked if they would be more comfortable with a 2 for 1 deal. They said they would deal and I could pick the original asked for 22 books. I told them there was 16 books I wanted most and would they rather do 16 books for 7 credits. They said no, do the 22. So I ordered 7 books and messaged them with the 15 other books. Now the person is accusing me of being greedy and says I am asking for 25 books. I'd really just like to cancel my order. I'm not sure why they accepted if they didn't like what I asked for. Can I somehow cancel this order now that they've accepted or is it all in their hands?

If they have not printed out the wrapper yet, then yes, you can cancel the order. I would just make sure to PM them as well, to let them know you are canceling, and why.

Something must have gotten lost in the translation. ( no meeting of the minds,,lol) PM them and apologize and hopefully they haven't mailed anything yet. They should not have agreed to something they were not comfortable with.

Thanks for the replies! :) They messaged me back and I understand what they meant now. It was totally my mistake. I ordered two books that were similar (same characters, same author, same series) that weren't books I mentioned on my list of wanteds instead of the two I wanted. I even actually already own the two books. Boy do I feel foolish! Therefore they thought I wanted two extra books on top of the others. It was just an overtired mistake on my part. I will wait and see if they are now okay with everything after I messaged back apologizing and explaining!
