I am sending out 2 wishlisted books to another member to save on postage.  I have not posted the books because of the FIFO system.  The books would go to the first person in line.  How do I post the books directly to the other member, so they could order the books from me, and there would be a mailing label.

Just make sure neither of you is on vacation hold and that you post from their WL and not the book description page.  Or even that the little pop up description isn't open.

Go to their Wish List and use the [Post this Book] button on the right.  That is the only posting button that will post directly to someone. You should then see a green banner saying you are posting the book to that member. If you don't see their name, back up and try again, don't complete the posting process.

What they said above.  Posting from any other location than the other members wishlist sends the book FIFO.

Also, folks that direct post to WLs usually ask that the book is on Auto-Request.
