I am new to book swap and saw the book bazaar forum and was wondering how to change books so i can do a 3 for 1 credit.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Actually, it is negotiated between the two members.  We do not change the one book for one credit setting.  I find that I'm most comfortable with using the "Mail book to a friend" option on the free books.  So the member orders one book, and the free ones are added.  Using this option helps me to remember to remove the free books from my shelf as well as letting me use the PBS address labels.

Welcome to PBS Cortni!  Not quite sure what you're asking, are you looking for advice on how to advertise a bookshelf special of 3 books for 1 credit in the book bazaar?

If you want to offer 3 books for only one credit, you can put that in your profile, list at top of your bookshelf page, as well as advertising in the book bazaar.  Folks who see your offer  will then go take a look at your "bookshelf"-- they will place an order for ONE of the books they want, then PM you to say the other two they want included for free.  After accepting the order, but before actually printing the label, You need to select "mail to a friend" option for the 2 free books and input  the name and address you were able to see for the one book they ordered.  The system will then add the 2 free books to the one ordered and the address label will reflect the estimated postage for the package of 3 books.

(sorry all 3 of us were typing answers at the same time!)
