I like the map feature but I am new. When will the books start showing up on the map? I mailed a book today, but its not on there.

And does the person who recieves it have to say they recieved it to get credit (even when I used the option of printing out postage with pbs money)??

If you used PBS postage, as soon as you marked it mailed you got your credit. If you're not sure you got it ,check your Credit Registry . And only completed transaction will show up on the map.

I think this is a great feature as you can see where all of your books have come from and all the books you've mailed out.

Welcome to PBS Cindy,

You will need to mark that the book has been Mailed to get your credit and to have it show up on the map. You can do this from your Main Account page, scroll down if you dont see the tabs from your screen view. Click on Book Has Been Mailed on the book you sent and your credit should show up in your account immediately if you used PBS Printable Postage. If you have used only DC, the credit will be awarded when the PO scans the book and the scan information is transmitted to PBS.

The other member should mark the book as Received when they get it, and if you have not used any additional services, ie, PBS Postage or DC, you will get your credit then.
