This is new for me. I have 2 books that should have been mailed already. One label is printed, they said they'd mail and PBS gives us an extra couple from the date we choose but what happens if the books aren't mailed? At what point can I go back to my WL place? So let' say someone says they'll mail on the 1st. Add 2 days to that and then if the book isn't marked mailed by what date does PBS return you to your place in line?
My other book was supposed to be mailed already , it has a will mail by date which passed but the label was never printed.
If these 2 folks changed their minds, that's ok but I'd like to go back in line.
I hope I explained myself right. Thanks !

Michelle, I don't remember how long senders have before the swap "times out" but if it does so, you go back to the same place in line you were when you were offered the book.
So if a friend offers you a book, even though you're 64 of 325, and then doesn't get it mailed, you go back to being 64. If you are offered a FIFO book, and were #1, then you return to being #1.
Hope this helps.
Here are the general deadlines. The final deadline should be listed on the order details. Orders "roll over" in the middle of the night. If the time isn't the middle of the night, then it was manually done.
Here is a list of deadlines associated with the PBS swapping process:
*The PBS system works on calendar --not business-- days. Members need to keep postal holidays and their own schedules in mind when accepting a request and choosing the mail-by date.

Yes, if not marked 'mailed' the transaction will time out and roll over to the next member offering the book (or you will be returned to your previous location on the wishlist).
