I referred someone who posted 10 books but instead of getting a credit or the page saying "member referred", it says "Pending (0)". Just curious what's going on, since there was no info about this in the Help Center. Thanks! :)

I had to have the person that I referred notify the PBS Team to remind them they were referred and I contacted the Team also.

They'll be listing as "pending" until they've posted 10 books.  (The "0" means they haven't posted any yet.)  Once all ten books have been posted, you'll get your referral credit. :-) 

If you haven't gotten your referral credit... doesn't mention the "pending" designation, but there's some good info there.

Actually, Patty, the number is the other way around. The number in the ( ) is the number of books they need to post to reach their 10 posted. I know this because I have a member with a (2) pending, and she currenty has 5 books on her shelf, and I know she sent a couple already.

Rory, I would send in feedback, AFTER I checked with the member to see if they are the second member of a household to have an account. Since the second account in a household no longer gets startup credits, I'm wondering if they generate referral credits either? If they are not in a multiple account household, then send in feedback to see if they can tell you what the problem is.
