Hi

I have several wishlist books and I listed under wishlist multiples in book bazaar but now I realize that I'm not sure how to actually get the wish list book to them.  I noticed everyone says to have the book as auto request but how to make sure it goes to the right member?

Thanks

You do not need Gold Key to post to another person's wish list.

  1. Click on the person's name in her PM or forum message to go to her profile.
  2. Click on the Wish List tab in the profile.
  3. Scroll down to find the book you have and click the Post This Book button that is off to the right. Do not click on the book title and then post the book from the detail screen. You must post from the wish list itself.
  4. When you get to the book posting screen, look for a green message above the book description that says "You are posting this book to this member: xxx". This is your confirmation that you did it correctly. If you don't see this message, something went wrong and you should not post the book until you've figured it out.

If you do have Gold Key, you'll see a dropdown on the book posting page that lists all of your friends who have the book on their wish lists. This is nice if you don't want to go through the multiples thread in the Bazaar, but it's not that helpful if you've already posted there and agreed to send to someone who is not on your friends list.

Thanks Cathy,

I appreciate the excellent directions because I probably would have clicked the book title too.  You saved me from making a mistake.
