On October 11, I set up a swap with another member. I mailed here books 2 days later. How long should I give someone before pm to see when they will send books?

Thank you :-0)

I usually give someone about a week- I think somewhere in the help center it says give them up to two weeks.

Hi Desiree,

The Help Center says this:

What if I never receive my Box-O-Books? If you have agreed to a Box-O-books swap and the other Boxer's books don't arrive (or if the swap is not marked mailed by a week after it was accepted), you should contact the other Boxer using the Personal Message button on the swap, to ask if the Box was mailed (or when it might be mailed). If the other Boxer does not respond to your Personal Message within a week, you should contact us and we will look into the situation.


Since it has been over a week, go ahead and PM them if you'd like.
