I have ordered two sets of audiobooks (new from Amazon) that have 3 books on them. Call them a triple feature, if you would. When I list them in the future, will they pop for 6 credits each, and if not, is there a way to modify this? Thank you, Ree

Richard, this is the audio equivalent of a boxed set.  If each book has a separate ISBN and is on separate discs, you can post them as separate books, but there is no way to post them all together and get more than 2 credits.  If you search the Help Center for "boxed set" (without the " marks), there are more details there.

I'd say this is also similar to ordering an omnibus, like THIS one. I just recently ordered that. It was one book/one credit, even though each of the three books it contains could also be ordered seperately. If there's only one ISBN, it's considered one book and you'll only receive the regular 2 audio book credits.

Yeah, I would say it is more like ordering a book that is 3 stories bound in 1 book - which is equal to one book credit. Most of the audiobooks I have seen like this do not have a separate ISBN for each book because they are not meant to be separate books, they were published as one.
