I have a three book boxed set I recently posted and has been requested..all well and good ...no problem there.  But; I just realized today that this set only generates 1 credit.  I was wondering why a three book set would be one credit?  I thought the credits were generally per book/volume?  Any inputs?  Like I said, no big deal.....I don't particularly care this time. ....just want to know for future reference.

Melody,  on PBS all books are 1 credit and audiobooks are 2 CR.  It's per ISBN.  

A Book set might have one ISBN so it trades for 1 credit.  

Sometimes each book in a set will have different ISBN's and you can over them individually.  

You can also offer a set of books in the Book Bazaar for 1 credit per book or offer a deal on the set.

I have always broken up my boxed sets and posted them individually for exactly this reason...don't want to send three books for one credit when I could get three credits.

Melody,  when I first joined PBS I was shocked to find out it's only 1 Credit for a multiple book set.  So you have options for next time.

I really love that on SwapaDVD and SwapaCD its 1 credit per disc.  2 credits per Blu-ray disc.
