I  thought I knew the answer to this,  but now I'm not so sure. When I had 2 books go missing last year, I decided to start using DC for almost all of my books. My reasoning was that I wouldn't lose the credit if the book went missing. But I recently read a post where a member felt compelled to return the credit, even though she had purchased DC. If that's the case, then I'm not quite sure why I'm spending the extra money. Would appreciate your thoughts.

According to the HC you still get your credit if you purchased PBS-DC and your book goes lost.  My question is though does the person that the book was being sent too receive a credit back also?  I mean why should the book recipient loose a credit if they didn't get the book but, then if I've purchased PBS-DC why shouldn't I get my credit back.

Was wondering if this is what the Credit Assurance part of the PBS-DC is all about!

Oh, maybe I am really confused. Sorry, of course the person will get the credit back. I checked the post I was referring to, and it involved BOB. Does it work differently for that?

In BOB there are no credits involved so there would be no credits to return. As for credit orders, both parties will get a credit when the book goes lost if the sender uses DC.

There are no credits being exchanged with BoB trades (you pay $8/year instead), so if the books go lost, you're pretty much out of luck. There are no credits to be returned.

OK, I understand now. Thanks.
