They come up when you're asked if you can send the book.  The requestor's conditions are identified, and you're asked if your book meets the requestor's conditons... and, if not, why not.  You can't miss them as you can't move forward without answering the question.

BTW, welcome to PBS.

RCs are pretty rare.  I would say I see them once every 15 books or so that are requested from me.  You can't miss them - you have to review them and agree that your book meets the conditions before you can accept the request.

It is a large window under Account Tab and it will appear when someone requests a book with conditions.  You need to agree the book meets those conditions and you can mail - if doesn't meet  the RC you need to  decline.  Your book goes back in the FIFO order it was prior to the request.

It took me several trades to finally see one, and I haven't seen many since.

I haven't seen one in ages.  I've sent out about 80 books and I've only seen 4 or 5.
