  • Reason: SwapaCD to PBS Transfer
-1

I did it once before why can't I do it today? It says I need to recieve 3 books. Last I heard it was 2. I really just want SwapaDVD credits. Anyone know why this rule changed within the last 10 days?

Jon, you'll probably need to contact the site owners to get an answer to your question. I just don't see enough detail in your post to be able to tell what's going on with your account. Use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page and then select "Send in Feedback" and ask them about it.

well i think the problem is I transfered a credit from SwapaCD to PBS after i earned my own credits from sending CDs/books, and now i can't because i've only recieved 2 books (which used to be the rule the rule is now 3), why did it change all of a sudden? To be clear I want to xfer credits I earned myself not the "Free for joining" credits.

The rule for PBS has always been that you must receive 3 books before you can trade out your credits. As you can see, I've been here nearly 3 yrs, and it's always been 3, maybe SaCD or SaDVD was 2, but PBS has always been 3.

If you weren't able to transfer a credit to PBS from SaCD, and haven't recieved a CD, then was it your only credit that you had there? SaCD will let you transfer credits that you've earned, but will NOT let you transfer the free credit UNTIL you've received a cd.

The same thing is true with PBS, except they changed from giving 3 free credits (and thereby needing to receive 3 books, which is how I know it was always 3 before) I thought they must have forgotten to change the need for receiving books to match the number of free credits given.

But, I looked up in the Help Center, and don't know where you see that you can't transfer credits unless you have to have received 3 books, when it clearly says 2

  • In order to give credits to other members without using the GIve Refund button, you must first have received at least 2 books from PBS.  Once you have received two or more books, the option will be available for you.

I would say that atleast 1 of your PBS credits were one of your initial free credits, and you cannot transfer your initial free credits to one of the other sites because as the Help Center says, they are to get you started on THAT site, not the other.

 

  • The initial (startup) credits cannot be transferred; so you will need to have used them in the account you are wanting to transfer from, in order to be able to transfer any credits from that account. 

    • The startup credits are intended to get members started swapping on that site, and are not intended to be generated and then transferred for use on the other sites.

HTHs

3 sent, 2 recieved. Is that a problem? It should be 2 to transfer not 3, I earned that last one to do what I want with.
