If you mark the book recieved, then they will get the credit. You can find the button in the transaction archive - I think. I have done this when a book was marked lost in the mail and showed up. And I have gotten a book and had to send them a PM to mark it mailed so that I could mark it recieved , LOL.

You got the book within 11 days.  I personally would mark it received and just let it go.  Fill in the postage date. If it's a habit with them then they'll get a warning from PBS. If it was a one time thing then where is the tragedy?  Things happen, cars break down, kids get sick, work gets busy etc.., 

The book was received relatively quickly. Does it really matter that it was mailed a little late? Yes they didn't mark it mailed-but if you didn't get another copy offered and sent-mark it received for them.  If another copy had been posted to you in the mean time, then I would say don't mark it received.

If you don't have another copy of that book on the way, you should mark the book received.  They did send the book and you did receive it.  The exception would be if you would end up with two copies of the book.

This usually happens when the member that sent this book did not complete the sending process by marking the book mailed, but sent the book anyway.  In these situations, there is a possibility that the requestor will end up with 2 copies of the book.

If you received (or will receive) two copies of the book, you are NOT obligated to give a credit to the sender whose transaction was canceled.  If you got (and will get) only one copy, you should mark the book received so that the sender gets credit.I

 

WHAT TO DO:

You should FIRST check your My Account main page to be sure there are no currently ACTIVE requests for the book in your account.

  • If you DO NOT have an active request for the book on your My Account page (check all tabs there)
    • you should mark this book received as described below.
  • If you DO have an active request for the book on your My Account page:

I didn't think I had ripped you a new one  but I'm sorry if I think you did.  It wasn't intended that way.   And in rereading my post I guess it was harsh and I am sorry for that. I have no problem admitting that I was wrong.

MY QUESTION was if the sender got the credit or not.

Not seeing the answer posted to this, if the sender never marks a book mailed they will never get the credit if it is not marked received even if they used DC. The quick credit/instant credit will not be activated if the book is not marked mailed and a scan will not produce a credit. The only way they get the credit is if the receiver marks it received if they forget to mark it mailed.

They may have suspended the account until they could talk to him and make sure he knows that he has to mark stuff mailed.
