There was a deal on the book Bazaar , and I ordered a deal on the 9th , and sent a pm for my feebie, and it still says" waiting for member"

How long does it take.  I mean if they cant send it for awile  ,thats okay. But , shouldnt they at least pm me about my pm ?so I know the frebie I  picked is okay.  It was my last credit and if they cant do the deal I rather they let me know now incase I need the credit.

send another PM, and just ask if the deal is still on, since you haven't heard back from them yet.

Transaction will time out in five days if the other member doesn't take any action on this so you may wish to send another PM to them to remind them.

I agree you might want to send another PM just to make sure that the deal is still on. 

If the person who offered the deal doesn't accept your order before it times out, the book you requested will roll over to the next available copy automatically--meaning you could end up with a copy of the book you ordered but not the other books in the deal.  So, if you the original sender doesn't accept the deal before it's set to time out, you probably will want to cancel your request so that it doesn't roll over.

Well , I went to pm them again and it says their account is on hold....She could have  at least  pm'ed me or said on the BB that the deal was done...or something.

Since the member's account is on hold, cancel the order.  With the lack of communication on her part, I woudn't want to do business with her anyway.
