How does this work?  I'm new to this site and in order to get my books moving, I would like to offer two books for each one selected.  Is there someplace on the site I can go to find out how to accomplish this?  For example, how do I put the 2 for 1 note on my account?  If someone chooses one of my books, do I choose the free one to send or does that person make a selection?  I have other questions about this process, but before I ask them I'll wait to see if there is information on the site.  Thanks for any help!

I let them choose. Post that you're offering  2 for 1 on your shelf & to PM you / post on your thread. You can only post deals in Book Bazaar.

Go to the Book Bazaar thread and you can look at how other folk's deal look.

Some things to think about when you post your deal:

Ask people to PM you and also to post their choice for freebies so that others know that they are taken.

Ask them to order one book off your shelf and PM and post their freebie choice.

Thanks!  I found the thread and will read now ... hopefully, I'll be ready for deals soon.

If you're going to run a deal do it when you can keep up with your thread and bookshelf. It's really annoying when someone posts a deal and then doesn't remove the freebie ones from their shelf or acknowledge that you ordered from them. 

Also don't cancel any requests for a deal that come to you. If you can't mail a book for some reason-have them cancel or it'll go to FIFO and they won't get their deal.  If someone has RCs that you can't meet, accept the request and then have them cancel for the same reason. If you just hit decline it'll put the order to FIFO.

Thanks for the info.  We are bracing for TS Fay here and expect to lose power any time, so I'll wait a few days before doing anything.
