I specifically checked, on "request details" and there were no RC. However, i got a complaint that RC was not met and its unresolved. The complatint was allergies to smoke. I personally didnt smell smoke on any of my books, but, due to this i will no longer accept RC's with a "smell" type request. 

What should i do? there were no RC's so i shouldn't refund the credit, right?  How would this be resolved? i just recently started pps and i do not want a black mark on my account. Had there been a RC, i would return the credit with no question.

I wouldn't return the credit especially since there was no RC.  I'm sorry that you got a RWAP so early in the game.  That's not the norm.  I've had lots of transactions and 99.9% were great.  I don't think this will count against you.  One RWAP with no RC? 

I know it's hard but just shake it off and get ready for some great books coming your way.  It'll get better.

Thank you. I know its not so bad, I just wonder why, Maybe she had her RC turned off for some reason. 


Annyway, ive already met some great members, and i have no doubt that this site will prove to be a great experience

I had the exact same scenario -- RWAP conditions not met with no RC.

You are required to respond to the recipient's PM, so state that there was no RC in place; therefore, you are not returning the credit and ask them to mark the transaction "Marked RWAP in error" (not "Resolved"). If they don't, it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. I have contacted TPTB about this and they said if they ever have to review your record this would not count against you.

Sorry to hear about the undeserved RWAP.  I hope it works out for you in the end.

I PM'd her explaining there was no RC. That is how i looked up to see if there was one, before i even sent her a PM.

Thanks for all the help.

Check their profile page. Maybe they posted it there not understanding the way RC's work.

No RC....No Refund.

Those Smell type of RC's are really subjective.

Welcome!  Happy Tradeing!
