I just returned from the post office from mailing 5 packages of books.  When I went to click on the "Books Have Been Mailed" button, it wasn't clickable.  I checked my delivery, confirmation slips and found that I haf mailed 2 of the packages to thesame person.  Sp now one persons books are going to the wrong place!

How do I fix this?  Do I PM both of the parties and tell them what happened?  I can send money to the person who will be getting two packages from me and ask them to forward the wrong package to the right person.

Man, I feel like a big ole dummy!

it happens, just PM the person that will be receiving the books and offer to paypal money or send credits for her to ship it to the right person.

Pm the person that is receiving the book to let them know of your mix up and that once it gets to its destination you will be having it shipped to them.

Like Leslie said, it happens.  The important thing is you realized it and are willing to fix it.  You can find everything you need in the Help Center document I sent a book to the wrong person!

Thanks!  I have PM'd both parties and she is going to forward the books on to the proper person.  I am sending her the money to cover the postage.
