I periodically buy books from the PBS Marketplace using the 1 credit + price option.  If I remain a la carte will the 0.49 fee apply to these purchases in addition to the old fee.  In other words would there be an advantage to buying books now rather than after 2/15/15?

Unfortunately, the sister sites that have a fee structure don't have anything like the Marketplace so I don't have anything to compare it to. I would *hope* that it would still just be the credit + $X without a transaction fee as that technically is a purchase not a swap.
