You'll have to wait 1 hr. until the requests show up. That's the lenght of the "buyer's remorse" period in auto requests.

There is a way around this waiting period.  I think it is that you PM them.  

ETA   Looks like it is already past your hour.

It's the other way Emily. If the requestor PMs the sender after ordering, then the buyer's remorse period is eliminated. As I recall, this was done so senders wouldn't be so confused about why this stranger was sending PMs. At least now they see the request at the same time as the PM.

Ah.  That makes sense.  That way a PM about adding a book or a deal will not arrive before the order does.

It will take longer if the autorequested book member doesn't have any credits as then it acts like the 48 hour hold.
