How can I tell if someone has restrictions on the type of books that they wish to be sent?  I tried checking profiles, but neither of the ones that I've sent out so far had profiles. Should I have pm ed them before sending.

New and confused,

Wendy

When someone orders from you if they have conditions you will have to say if your book meets them before you can accept the offer.

Before you can accept a book request a screen will pop up to let you know if/what the restrictions for that receiver are. Then based on that you can either accept or decline the offer. If you haven't seen that screen yet when accepting an offer, than no one that has ordered from you has had any conditions on their account.

If someone who has restrictions orders a books from your shelf, you will see their restrictions before you can accept the transaction.  You have to answer "Yes, my book fits their conditions" or "No, my book does not fit the conditions" then if you say yes, it will continue on to the "How soon can you mail this book?" part.

Thanks so much for your answers. I didn't see any restrictions, but I was reading some of the discussions and it occured to me that I might be missing something. I'd rather ask than make a mistake.
