I posted a WL book.  The person accepted and the requested 2 more books. It put the 2 extra books on one wrapper and the WL book on a seperate wrapper.  Is there anyway to get it to go all under one?

Not and get instant or quick credit for all 3 if you are using PBS-DC. But, if you don't mind waiting until the receiver marks it received, then you simply adjust the weight for one of the wrappers to be that of all 3 books. Then on the other wrapper, you would have to do a fake printing (hit print, but cancel it going to the actual printer). Don't add DC or postage to the second wrapper either.

The reason the wrapper came to you separated, was because the requestor did not use the "order more from this member" button, they went thru the PM only button to look at your shelf again (or one of the other two books were from the FIFO line, and your's just happened to be next).

Anyway, as I say, there is no way to combine them into one wrapper and receive the instant or quick credit for all of them, but if you use only one wrapper, when the receiver gets the books & marks them received, you will then get all 3 credits.

Actually I have sent 3 books before in a bulk wrapper and got instant credit for them all. But if you can't see the bulk wrapper option I don't know how you'd find it!

I was just wondering why it put one book on one wrapper and 2 on another for the same person. It must have been the way they ordered the books. No biggy.  Would be nice if there were a "combine orders" button though. I have had this happen frequently and since I use the PBS postage it would be nice to have it combine them for me.

I've been wondering about the bulk wrapper myself, I notice that not only does it offer "order more books from this member" before you finalize your first book, it also offers it on your account screen while the book is "waiting for member."  Since the orders "waiting for member" haven't had a label printed yet it would seem possible to make them into a bulk order, but maybe it doesn't?
