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.

Belinda--

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.

Cheers,

Catt
