Is it just me?  There have been several times when I have sat down to mail books and realize AFTER I paid for the Paypal shipping on one book, that another book was requested by the same member!  I could have shipped them together.  I'm not sure why it doesn't come up as a bulk order or something like that.  Or am I missing something?

If it didnt come up as a bulk order then they didnt order it that way. Ive had it happen when they were ordered from a search rather than the member looking directly at my shelf.

I've had the other side of the problem, I order more from someone's shelf and they get spread out by FIFO. They all list on the side of the screen and I ok the full list as an order. I am pretty certain I click add from their bookshelf, not after clicking on the book. But the way they show up on the main screen, I cannot tell if they a bulk ordered or single until I notice some not making it past my smoking clause and some being accepted before others. Would be nice if books coming/going to the same place would be clearly listed that way on my account tab.

They were probably on the persons wish list and that's why it put them seperately  That happened to me the other day but I caught it before I had them wrapped and postage paid.  I had 3 people order multiple books from me yesterday but they did it from my book list and it put them on one wrapper.

I can see myself turning down a smoking condition on one book, and not on another.  My books come from various places--any smoking conditions undergo my SO's sniff-test, since I can't smell it. 

I remember sometime a mention of a possible feature of being able to combine books if they were requested by the same member, but I don't know if that works, or if you'd have to notice before printing any of the labels.

I have several times clicked on "order more from this member" and had them process separately. I am not sure why that is. I do not have conditions currently. I usually PM and point out to the member that it should have gone through as a bulk order.
