Set Dollar Limit

When a Dollar Limit is listed on your order, be assured that we will not exceed the limit that you have established. If you want to ensure that your limit is reached for budgetary purposes, we recommend that you provide 20% over your dollar amount. Priorities [3] can be established on your lists to indicate preferences for titles.

You can add a Dollar Limit when you create a list, or you may add this information at a later time [4].

Create a new list by logging into Mackin.com and navigating to My Account> My Lists.


…OR create a new list from any list, search results, or Search page by selecting Options > Create New List.

Once that is chosen, a pop-up will appear prompting you to create a Dollar Limit if you would like to include one.

If your list is 20% over your established Dollar Limit, when you open that particular list you should see the following pop-up.


If your list has already been created and you want to add a Dollar Limit or edit an existing Dollar Limit, you will need to edit your list information [4].

Unfilled Titles

When an order is closed, some titles might have been left off of your order. These are unfilled titles. It could be that you over-ordered by the recommended 20% and some of the items you marked Priority C and D [3] went over your Dollar Limit. Some titles might have been unavailable, or some might have been available only in different formats. Mackin keeps a record of these unfilled titles for your reference. You may choose to create a new order of these unfilled titles.

To view your unfilled titles, choose My Mackin > My Account > Orders on the main menu.


If you are an administrator for different schools, select the desired school from the dropdown menu next to Location. If applicable, choose the year your order was filled.


Any closed order with unfilled titles will have a link under Status that reads Unfilled Titles.


Click on this link to view your unfilled titles. Unfilled titles fall into three categories: Available for Reorder, Unavailable with Alternates, and Unavailable.


If you just want to view your unfilled titles, when you are finished you can go back to the previous screen by clicking the Back to Order History link.


You may choose to Create a New List out of your unfilled titles. There are some limitations to be aware of.

  1. The list you add your unfilled titles to must be new. You cannot add your unfilled titles to an existing list. (You may choose to eventually merge [5] this new list with an existing list, however.)
  2. The new list must include all unfilled titles. You cannot pick and choose which titles to add to the new list.
  3. This process can only be done once per order.

To create a list of your unfilled titles, click the Add Titles to New List button.


After you have created a new list of unfilled titles, your closed order will be stamped Unfilled Titles Posted. You will not be able to view your unfilled titles from your Order History after you create a list of unfilled titles.


The stamp will also include the date the list was created, the username of who created the list, and the list name (for reference purposes). Mouse over the symbol next to Unfilled Titles Posted to see the stamp information.
