So I went to mail a book that I printed the label for this morning and the post office wanted to charge me an additional $.90 to use the confirmation number issued to me by PBS. The new fees include confirmation numbers on first class and media mail so I paid PBS  for confirmation numbers to get my credits quickly but now I am going to have to wait. I sent an email asking PBS how this is going to work so I will update when I get more info.

If someone has info on this please let me know.

thanks

Jane

Jane, there is another thread talking about the delivery confirmation/tracking issue. You may want to watch that one for updates.
