I can't seem to find the answer to this question.  Do you get 1 credit for every 10 books you post?

No, you only get the free credits (2) for the first ten books you post.  After that it's 1 credit for every book mailed (2 for each audiobook).  This exact question can be found in the Help Center docs.  Do I get credits for every 10 books I post?

You can find the Help Center docs here:  http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/help_index.php  There are plenty of questions and categories, as well as a search field where you can enter keywords or entire questions.  It's really helpful and full of every bit of information a Swapper might need. 

Hope that helps :)

When do you get your credits? Because I listed my first ten yesterday, and mailed three, and I still have 0 credits.

And I want to start ordering books...

Siobhan - Do you have any other PBS accounts at your house?  The two free credits are actually per household, not per account.  That might explain it.

AH!  My mom has an account that she never uses.  But she's never listed books.  I asked her to log on to check and she doesn't have any credits either.  Hmm... But maybe since she signed up first, the credits will go to her as soon as she lists her first ten?

Yes she will get the credits if she posts 10 books since she was the first to open an account. Encourage her to do so.
