From the Help Docs:

At present, we are a US-only club.

  • PBS members must be able to receive mail at an address served by USPS.
  • The PaperBackSwap system uses Media Mail postal rates provided by the USPS.
  • Media Mail rates are good for:
    • all 50 US states
    • US territories and commonwealths (American Samoa, Guam and the Virgin Islands; Washington, D.C., the Northern Mariana Islands and Puerto Rico),
    • APO/FPO addresses
    • If you live in any of these areas, you can belong to PBS. 

We've had requests for international membership from all around the world.

  • Eventually, we hope to expand.
  • We have had a LOT of requests from Canada!
    • We have been working on shipping issues regarding the Canadian postal system. Until we work these out, we will not be able to trade across borders with our system.

Non-US members are welcome to join in the forum discussions, but cannot order books.

If you live along the border and frequently travel back and forth to the US you could get a PO box in the US for your mailing address.
