Hi - I am assuming that this is what I am suppose to do - but want to verify that there isn't anything else.

I rec'd a book from HI that took way longer than PBS allows.  Thanks to a couple of posts that stated books from HI can take up to 6 weeks or a little longer, I didn't reorder when it was marked lost to give it some more time.  The sender uses PBS postage and DC so I am assuming she didn't lose her credit when it was marked lost and I rec'd my credit back.  I went to mark it received but the only positive option I had was:

Click Yes if you DID receive the book from Miriam S. and need to give this sender credit.

Is this the option I  select and PBS system sorts out the transaction?  Or is there something else I must do?  thanks

Yup. That's all you need to do.

It won't give her extra credits if that's what your worried about.  That's just the standard responses as most people don't use the DC or PBS postage.

Being in Hawaii they are probably used to books going lost in both directions.

I am not worried about the extra credit - I wasn't sure of the process.  I only rec'd 3 books so I do not have the common knowledge that many others do on this site.
