What is Not Now feature? 

What happens if I click Not Now? 

For a wl offer it says:

I want this book

I Do Not want this book

Not Now

From the Help Center:

The "Not Now" button on a Wish List offer will appear between the "I want this book" buttons and the "I do not want this book" on the offer while it is active on your My Account page.

What it does:

Clicking the Not Now button will decline that copy of the book but KEEP the book on hold on your Wish List, without losing its position in the Wish List line.  The "held" wish will continue to advance in the Wish List line (if it is not already #1) while it is on Hold. 

Then, when you're ready to accept the next offer of the book, you just go to your Wish List, unHold the Wish (click to check the box to the left of the listing and click UnHold at the top of the list), and wait for the next offer. 

Please note:

  • Each item on your Wish List will have the "Not Now" option only once - so if you use the Not Now button for a book, the next offer of that book will need to be accepted or declined.
  • There is no option to use the Not Now button retroactively - it is available only during the 48 hours in which the offer is active, on your My Account page.
  • If you are the only one wishing for a book and you use the Not Now button when the book is offered to you:
    • the book will go onto the posting member's Bookshelf and your Wish for the book will go on Hold on your Wish List. 
    • If you unHold the Wish later and the book is still available, it will be offered to you immediately.

Thanks, I had  seen it the help section when I first joined but I could not find it today.

While searching today I found A Tour of My Book Shelf.  That will be helpful. It's not immediately clear if something is set to 48hr offer or auto-request so I will rely on the tour. 

Good to know you can use Not Now once per book.

If a book is set to automatic request, you will have a green background...a quick and easy way to determine.
