I just received a PM from someone who marked a book mailed a few days ago and now says that the book can't be mailed until a few weeks from now due to financial issues. It's a wishlist book and I'd like to get back on the wishlist now. She said she's willing to cancel but how can this be done? Do I use the contact us link and send them the PM? I just want back on the WL sooner rather than later.

I think you both have to contact PBS.  They might do it if just you ask since you have the PM from her.  But they might need her to PM them as well.

The sender has to be the one to contact the Team, they won't cancel it on a receiver's request.  Test her to send in Feedback asking them to cancel it because she didn't really mail it.

Yet another reason not to mark books mailed until after the fact.

Or to mail them after you mark them mailed! :)
