How do you get PBS to adjust your postage if you are sending 2 books for one credit?

You weigh them together and manually input the weight on the label for the one book in the system.

I finally had to break down and buy a postal scale.  PBS sells a nice one in the Kiosk.

You can also add the second book as a "sent to a friend" book. I will download the label without postage, use that address to add the second book, then re download the label with the computer estimating the combined postage. (I still check the weight with my scale. But it is much closer.)

The place to adjust the weight is at the bottom of the "print wrapper" page.  You can choose either the weight of the books or the weight of the wrapped books.
