Someone posted a book that came up on my wishlist and it was then declined. I was worried it may be due to my DC & so I checked my email and didn't see any messages on why it was declined.

I contacted the person and told me it was acually a mistake the book being posted, but they read my profile and since the book may help with my health issues they'd love to send me the book. They are worried though if they post it again it won't go directly to me.

This person says they are not an active PBS user so they are not sure what to do. I have never done this either.

Is there a way this person can post the book FOR ME only?

We were going to do just a private swap and I sent them a credit, but they said they had problems printing out the custom DC. I don't know how do use that since I don't use it. I mail things with Paypal.

Thanks

They need to click on your wl, find the book on your list and click "post this book".  There is a box that pops up after that that says something like, "you are posting this book to Ashley, is this who you want to post this book to?"   Tell them to watch for that box and make sure it says your name and not someone elses.  They can still back out of the transaction at that point if your name is not the name they are posting to.  Make sense?
