Morning All,

I am trying to figure out how I have a book that was accepted on 2/8 and still only has the word accepted underneath status.

How do you work things to get this much time to play with?

When someone says "I can mail in 2 days" it only says accepted instead of will mail by such & such date.

In your case, if you look at your transaction archive, you will see that another person actually first had this order and they did not respond within the time limit, it timed out, and went to the current sender.

well, there is also the thought that when you get a book to send...ie:  I had one requested on 02/15 and I do not have to accept it until 02/20 then I can choose to have another 5 days to mail it but, like Sherry said if I chose the 2 day mailing option I would have until 02/22 and it would only say accepted.

Sherry and Christy,

Thanks so much - I really should learn to look at the transaction details. :)

Just an update . . .

the transaction got canceled due to the sender not responding to emails.

I had a feeling . . . .

Here's to a good book week for all.

Thanks for the info!  I'd wondered the same thing - why some of my requests just said "accepted".  Now I understand.
