I have a box set of manga books that I want to post, but I'm trying to figure out how many credits it is worth. Do box sets count as one item and cost one credit, or do you receive a credit for each book in the set?

Box sets ( with a single ISBN for the set) only count as one credit. Sometimes the books in the boxed set has individual ISBNs and if that is the case then you can post them individually and get a credit for each one, but ONLY if they have individual ISBNs.

How do I post my 'boxed set' of books?

If each of the books bears a unique ISBN, you can Post each as a separate entity

  • this way, you will earn a credit for each.

If the "box" holding the boxed set bears an ISBN, you can post with that number, BUT

  • this way, you will earn only ONE credit for the SET.

There is not a way to post the books individually yet require one member to take all of them and award you all of the credits for the one bulk request.

If you do post the books individually and want to send them all to one member:

  • you can start a topic in the Book Bazaar Discussion Forum to advise members that you have a boxed set.
  • Another member may be glad to learn of this and request all of the books from you using the bulk request "order more books from this member" feature.

You can offer the set in the Book Bazaar.

You might consider posting them in the Graphic Arts & Manga forum.
