Is there any way to give someone else PBS money? The only gift certificates I can find are for credits, box of books, and book journal. I'd like to give someone a gift of postage money but don't know if I can do that.

I don't think there's a way to do that. You can give credits to another member, of course...

Hi Barbara....the only thing I could think of was to perhaps give them a Gift Certificate to Paypal and then let them know it is for PBS Money....   I've never done it that way, but I would imagine it could be done.  ??

ETA:  I just checked Paypal....the only way to do GC's is to be a merchant.... BUT, you can Send money to the person if you have their email address.

I bet if you send in feedback to the PBS Team they would help you do it. Click on the Help Center tab at the top of the page, and choose Contact the PBS Team when the new page opens. You can send them a message from there.

I think I suggested it to TPTB quit a whilr ago. I still think it would be a good idea.
