So, yesterday evening I printed a wrapper for a book to go out and wrapped it and went down the road to put it in the mail box for p/u this morning........well, at about 2 am when I couldn't sleep, I realized that I didn't see that solid black box that is usually printed on the wrappers I print out (I send mostly hardbacks, so it is most always over 15oz. - which means  postage and pbsdc).  Well of course I am fitfully awake, trying to figure out if I am dreaming this mistake or what!  So, I run down this morning and yup, I messed up!  So, I run back home and reprint the wrapper with Postage and PBS DC.  Now, the 1st time I printed it, I used just PBSDC and would have gotten the credit when the PO scanned the package, but this time when usually I would get the credit when I hit Book Has Been Mailed - well, that button of course was not available to me - so when do you think I will get the credit?

I am hoping this makes sense, I didn't get much sleep!!!  Yup, sign me up ~ My name is Carol and I am a PBSwap addict.........keep me up all nite trying to figure out how to correct my screw-up..grumble, grumble.....

That's a good question Carol.  Maybe you will get credit on the first scan.  I don't know for sure, though.

You will get the credit when the book is scanned.  I recently marked a book mailed when I meant to print a wrapper with Postage and DC.  Since the book was already marked mailed you can't get instant credit, but you will get a credit when it is scanned or marked rec'd.

Thanks guys!  I wish I hadn't tossed and turned all nite trying to figure out where I had messed up and how to fix it!  But, if it wasn't that, it would have been something else I'm sure!
