I was offered a 3/1 deal from a member, I found 9 books that I wanted and she said ok. I ordered 3 of the books.  Got them in the mail today. Only the 3 that I ordered was in the box.  They were so not postable, covers are falling off of one, the other looks like it was used for a paper plate food crumbs all over, the third was not bad but still not postable.

I did pm the member to let her know about the other books that I didn't receive.   Now if I get the others I will chalk the ones above as oh well. If I don't get the others, I am afraid if I mark the others as not postable she will think that I am doing it because of the bad deal.

What would you all do??

If the books you received were not postable, then please mark them RWAP.  Regardless of the deal you made, they need to be reported in the event that she has a habit of sending out unpostable books.  That way the team can look into it.

I am sorry she shafted you on the remainder of the books.

As Mary said "If the books you received were not postable, then please mark them RWAP". Regardless of any deal, you ordered these books from her shelf, and they should have been postable. And, request your credit back. IF the sender refunds the credits & IF the other six books turn up, you MAY choose to buddy her a credit back then, if you feel it is appropriate.

I am also sorry she shafted you on the deal.

As for your concern she will think you are RWAPing her because you didn't receive the other books, so what? You are RWAPing her books becasue they were unpostable, simple as that.

Regardless of weather the sender shafted you, shipped some books seperately,  or just made a mistake, the books that they did send are not postable and they could see what condition they were in just the same as you. She went ahead and sent them anyway. RWAP.
