I just had an embarrassing Gold Key issue, I was trying to order some books from someone with an offer but somehow ended up placing the order and sending the PM to someone else, a gold key member. So I canceled the order and sent a second PM apologizing, went back to the original post and started again only to end up in the wrong bookshelve again. So, my question is, if you are withn a certain distance of a GoldKey member with a book you are trying to order, can you not order it from another member? Even if you are trying to do a multiple book order? This seems odd to me, specially as it does not tell you it is redirecting you, I just had to cancel my order twice because I don't just want this one book and I didn't know I was ordering from the wrong person until I sent the PM.

If you are ordering directly from a person's bookshelf, it should not redirect you. A way to be sure is, before clickeng the "process my order" button, click the button that says "order more from this member. You'll be able to see the name/nickname of the member from there before your order is finalized. Just be sure to click the back button on your browser to be sure that you get back to the correct order page.

What Lisa said.  Also, if a member has his bookshelf on "vacation hold", or if someone else has already ordered the book from him, your order will go out to the general population.

 

How do I direct my order to a specific member?
