I'm sure this is not the right place to post this but alot of people dont go to CMT forum.  I have a question and was wondering " I have 3 books to mail out ( one of them in Alaska)   It my take longer then 14 days to get there, what if those people dont pay a membership fee? will I not get credit for them?

here is some info:  http://www.paperbackswap.com/PBS-Membership-Fees/topic/300055/?ls=275#p6615229

Since their credit is deducted when they order the book, I would think you would still get the credit.

The accounts don't close on 2/15, just those without a membership go to paying per transaction. They can still mark books received. If by chance, they close their account, PBS can mark it received.

Lisa it looks like everyone who doesn't pay for a membership gets switched over to an a la cart plan where they just pay the .49 every time they request a book, it doesn't cancel there membership if they don't pay for one of the new plans.  You should be good, though you might want to consider using printable postage or the dc option jic.

However, Elizabeth, they do not get their 200 wishlist anymore w/out membership.  

I think it goes down to 100.

I am wondering which 100 they are going to delete from a person's account?

This is more reason why the rollout of a new club protocol should have been made with more time given, i.e 2 months or so.  We need time to react and reaccess.

They are not cutting your wishlist down. You will not be able to add until you drop to 100 (or whatever level you are at)
