I just referred my mom, got her signed up and added her as a buddy.  I want to send a specific book from my shelf to her but when I try to send it it doesn't look like I get credit for it, it just asks me to fill in a name and address so it can create a label for me.  It doesn't ask for my buddy's user ID or email address.  And when she views my bookshelf and tries to request the book it apparently sends the request to another member.  What are we doing wrong?

TIA!

She has to order the book from you. The mail to a friend is just a way to get the label from here.

But  I order the book from her bookshelf she doesn't get the request.  How do we make sure she get the request?

She has to be looking at the books on your shelf. If she checks a description or leaves the page for any reason the order will go to the FIFO (first in first out) line.

OK, that's what we did.  Maybe we just weren't patient enough for the request to come through.  Thanks for your help!

I think it takes a hour before you get the request,  but after she requests it, you can look at your book shelf  at the book and you should be able to see that it is on hold 1 hour buyer remorse. ( I think )
