I have a book on my shelf that Paperback Swap said is 2 credits to purchase.  Is there anyway in which I can change that to 1 credit?  I don't want people to have to pay 2 credits to obtain my item.  thank you for your information.

No book costs more than one credit to swap.  Audio books cost 2 credits to swap.  The item on your bookshelf for two credits is an audio book.  If it's not an audio book you need to delete it and re-add it as a book.  You can't swap an audiobook for less than two credits, just like you can't swap any books for more than two credits.

Audio books are automatically set at 2 credits. You can offer it in the Book Bazaar for 1 credit and/or put it in your shelf header that you are offering it for 1. When someone orders it, you can just buddy the extra credit back to them.

If you didn't post the audio version, but have the printed version, double check the ISBN and post it again properly under the "print" ISBN, which will only cost 1 credit.
