When you first order a book, the site gives you the chance to order more books so as to save the sender some postage.  I noticed today that after a while, even though the sender hasn't responded yet, you can't order anymore books nor can I even see who the sender is.  Why would that be?

What do you mean by not being able to see who the sender is? There should be a PM button there on any requests. The order mor button does disappear from the transaction when the label has been printed I believe. I wonder if it also goes away if they put their shelf on Vacation Hold or they don't have any books on their shelf?

Hi, Melanie.  I forgot about the PM button so yes, I guess I could find out who they are that way.  They haven't accepted my request yet and the "order more button" is gone.

Hmm, if you click on the PM and then on their name can you get to a profile where you can see if they have their shelf on hold or have no other books posted? If they don't have a profile, I guess it remains a mystery.

I can get to them through a PM, profile, etc.  I checked although I'm surprised that the "order more books" button is gone on both book orders.  It's not a big deal.  There's nothing more that I want to order right now but I'm just surprised, that's all.  I thought that the button stayed until the sender accepted the order and printed the label.  There hasn't even been an acceptance yet.

 

But like I said...it's no big deal. (smile)

Now I've ordered another book, looked through the member's bookshelf and processed my order.  The "Order more books" button is gone.  Would that be because I've already looked through the bookshelf?  Didn't happen before.  Quirks in the system?  Hmmm

Is it possible that the other member has printed the label?

There are three requests from three different people.  No one has accepted them yet nor printed.  (shrugs)
