I have an RC that I apply when I am ordering a book that (I think) may have been used as a text book:

If this book was used as a textbook: Please do not send a used text book with highlighting or underlining of text. Handwritten notes in the margins or on blank pages are fine. Thanks!

I recently put a book on my wishlist that may have been used as a text book.  When I put it on my wishlist I had the RC in place but nothing on my wishlist indicates that there's an RC on the book.  When it shows up to be ordered -do I set the RC again before clicking I want this book?  Will that work?

 

Thanks-

Ann

The RC needs to be on before you accept the offer. Then you can turn it off after accepting the order. What matters is how it is set when you accept the order.

If you have your wish list on auto-request, then the RC needs to be on. 

It is not how the RC is set when you wish; it is how it is set when you accept it.

Thanks-

I wasn't sure if it would 'take'  if I turned it on when accepting the offer -if it was turned off when the offer was made (If that makes any sense).  My wishlist is not on auto-request.  I just have to remember to turn the RC on before accepting.
