About a month ago, I placed an order with Amazon. It was late at night and somehow, when my order arrived, I noticed I had ordered three of the exact book--when I only meant to order one. I meant to return them to Amazon, but forget about them and the 30 day return period has passed now. I decided to post them (never read, brand new from Amazon) into the PBS system, as I noticed there were 18 members waiting in line for the book. I successfully posted the first copy of the book and note that it is currently "pending on another member's wishlist." However, I tried to post the second copy of the book I have and I am not met with a message saying, "You cannot post duplicate copies of the same book."

Is there anything I can do about this? Am I unable to post the second copy because the first copy is "still pending" or will I never be able to post the second copy of the book?

Thanks for your help!

after the first copy has been marked as received you can post the other copy

When you mark the 1st copy mailed, you can post the 2nd copy  :)

Posted the same time, but the Help Center says mailed, so I'd think that means marked mailed. Sorry to type on you ;)

yup as soon as you mark the first book mailed.  I've done that before when I've had several of the same book

Yes, you do have to wait until you post the first book mailed.  I managed to get about 5 copies of a book that was WLd, and it took about 2 weeks to get them all out. LOL, but I did manage it.  Thought maybe I could post the second book after I'd printed the first wrapper, but didn't work, only worked after the book had been marked mailed.   Pat
