I just had 2 WL books come up. I only had 1 credit. When I went to buy PBS credits, I got an request for one of my books, so I figured that I'd buy postage (since I have a few books on their way to others) mail the request and then be able to order both books. 

Well, I guess it's changed since I last used it? I mailed the book and then marked it mailed - no credit.

So now I have PBS $ instead of credits and I have to pray that the post office scans the book in the morning (before my 48hr WL runs out) so I don't have t figure out which book I want more..

it doesnt generate the credit until the book is scanned at the PO.

I could of sworn that when you purchased the postage along with the DC that you got your credit when you marked it mailed... Oh my brainis acting out with my "old" age.

Thanks!

Thanks for the offer, but I just checked my account and I did get my Quick Credit!  It just took 10 mins.

Thank Goodness.......

Happy Dance Now!

You should get the credit right away if you bought the postage.     If you bought just the DC, no, but postage gives you an instant credit.

With printable postage, the credit should come through when you mark it mailed.  You shouldn't have to wait for the scan.

Yes, of course you are right, I had DC stuck in my head instead of PP.  Glad it came through for you!!

I imagine with the number of users on this site, it takes the computer a few minutes to catch up sometimes.  I mean it's late at night and there's over 1000 people online right now.
