You can offer it FREE with a required number of requests from your shelf. You cannot require any requests from your shelf in order to post it to them for a credit though. If you are offering something for free you can have whatever requirements you want to get it free as long as there will be no more than 1 credit be book and no credits for non-book items. 

eta: you can offer an unpostable book for a credit in the Bazaar too. You just have to have them buddy the credit and PM the address.

There are several places you can post the book Denise, and you can even ask for a credit if you wish.  So long as you clearly define the condition of the book for the reqester, and the condition is accepted before you send the book.   The unpostable book must not be posted FIFO.

Haven't been over to check, but it's my understanding there is a thread in the Book Bazaar for members hoping to send multiple books, you can post the book there.  Depending on the genre, some of the specific forums also have threads for posting wishlisted books looking for new homes (including multiples).  Romance, Paranormal, and possibly Cozy/mystery.

You can list unpostables on your siggy line and ask for a credit to cover postage also.

Thanks - sorry I didn't make it clear, I knew about the credit/no credit thing, just didn't know if I could ask for a multi-book order as an incentive to get the free WL.

I believe you can offer the book as a freebie with whatever # order you want to ask.

You can just offer the book to the first responder on the Book Bazaar.  You don't *have* to offer it with other books.

I haven't checked the thread guidelines, but have you seen this one ***NOVEMBER*** Wishlist Multiples in the Book Bazaar?

The way you have offered it is within the rules. I will add that I have never seen anyone have much luck with the approach. One member was offering postable wish list books that way, but in the end not many people were willing to spend 3-4 credits on available books to get at that wish list book.
