If you need TT credits, please message me. I'd love to trade for some of your PBS credits. Thanks!

Just to let you know site doesn't allow this. Here is their post on the subject of trading other sites credits here:

All right, here is the PBS Team word on this.

You can sell your PBS Credits here. 

You cannot sell anything else.

That means that [name], you could have posted "Anyone want to sell me some credits?  Contact me by PM if so," and then in Personal Messages explained what you are willing to pay.  But you should not post a topic selling anything for credits.  If in PM negotiations anyone was willing to accept the currency of another site for PBS credits, then you could make the exchange.  

It is a small point, but there you have it.  Don't hawk your wares (whatever they are) for credits.   But you can ask if anyone is looking to sell credits, and negotiate payment with them privately.

We are sure someone else will find a way to do the above inappropriately somehow, and we will hear from members again asking us to clarify, but for now this is the ruling.

Interesting, because one look down the first *page* alone of this forum and there have got to be about 20 people flagging their books for credits, saying they need credits, so they are hawking their books. And there's also a lot of messages about people selling their credits, along with the prices listed in the forum posts - NOT individual private messages. I guess you're going to be awfully busy emailing every single person in this forum! :-)

Anyway, I'm happy to abide by PBS rules.

Heather,

You can pay money for credits from other members and you can give credits for books, but can't offer anything else in the Book Bazaar for credits, including any other sites "points", etc.  But if you want to offer other such deals, you can have other members PM  you about it.  Just no advertising specifics.
