I hope this makes sense! I printed a mailer with DC today for 2 MMPBs. Later today, the same member ordered 3 HCs. I would like to send all 5 books in the same box/package with DC. BUT - I still have to print a mailer for the order of 3, with or without DC - and I don't know how to get credit for all 5 in one box/package with DC if DC is printed for 2 different mailers. Make sense? Any answers? Couldn't find anything in help.        Blessings     M'ann

I don't believe there is a way to place DC on those 3 extra books without paying for it again, and it cannot be combined after the first label is printed. If it was just DC you printed, I am pretty sure that the weight doesn't matter, so you can use the first label for a package containing all the books. 

The only downside is that you won't get credit for the second order until they mark them all received.

You won't be able to get quick credit on all of them if it has it on 2 seperate orders even if you pay for DC twice.  I don't think there's a way to combine them once you print the label for one of the transactions.

Well, it's as I thought it is! Thank you for your input. I'll send all 5 with the one DC already printed. You're great to take time to answer!   Blessings    M'ann

PBS will combine the book orders, even if some of the books are ordered after a wrapper has been printed. I did this just last week, so I know that's how it worked.

Unfortunately, I do not remember if I printed the wrapper the first time with DC. (I know I ended up printing the second wrapper with DC, and mailing it that way .... but I just don't recall that first wrapper. The first wrapper was for 2 books, so it was pretty likely that I did print with DC, but I don't know for sure. I do know that I was only charged once for the DC printing, though.)

So, with DC or without DC might make a difference in whether or not they combine orders. And, if I could remember, I might be able to tell you guys for sure. I do know that without DC, the system definitely will combine the orders, though.
