I'd like to just ship once a week. It is OK to just clcik the "I can ship this book later" and choose Friday?

It sure is! Quite a few people here on PBS only do once weekly post office runs.

Of course it is.

I only ship on Sunday, myself. (Usually. Right now I am doing a Bazaar deal so I have to go on a day they are open with my boxes).

I just wait until Tues or Wed to accept orders that come early in the week, and choose Sunday as my mailing day.

I used to only ship once a week. I would jsut hold off on accepting until it would give me that day.  Now I have to go to the PO almost every day for work anyway so I just ship whenever.

If it wasn't why would they give you the option? smiley

Sure Robin, this option is used by a number of PBS members with difficult schedules.

I always chose the last mail by date - even if I'm planning on making a run to the PO that same day.  Life happens and I figure the built-in cushion of time is offered to us for a reason.

I do the same thing, Becki. Yesterday I got a request, chose the last mail-by date, and then had the book in the mailbox in less than an hour. :)
