I must have clicked the wrong thing because I accidentally cancelled a transaction.  Somebody requested a book from me and I thought I was accepting it.  When I went to print off the label, it was gone and my transaction archive says that it was cancelled by the sender (and that's me, right?)

 

Can I undo this?

Thanks.

You can't officially UNDO it.  If this wasn't a wishlisted book then the request has gone to someone else.  The book has been removed from your shelf.  You can PM the requestor from the achive transaction and tell the requestor you'd like to post it to their bookshelf, if it's a wish listed book.  OR you can just relist the book.

Well, I did that.  And so I wait.  (sigh...dumb me).  I re-listed it on my bookshelf and I already sent the requester a pm about it.  Still don't know how I did it but I don't doubt it.  I'm exhausted today so that's probably why.

Don't feel too bad. I did the exact same thing several weeks ago. Thank goodness it was not wishlisted and I was able to contact the other swapper. We got things sorted out quickly. I bet I never do that again!!

Don't feel too bad, I have done it a couple of times now.  I am sure many on this site have done it.  It is one that I always want to bang my head against the table when I realize what I have done!

Make sure the other member knows to cancel the new transaction she has going with the next sender in line.  Otherwise she'll receive 2 copies.

I'm surprised that when you push that button a message doesn't come up saying are you sure you want to cancel this transaction.

I am, too, and thought that was odd.  It didn't have a space to write a reason either.  It just disappeared.
