I was on another book trading site and saw where someone offered PBS, FR, etc. credits for a credit on that site. The way the did it was like posting a book w/out an ISBN and for the title they put "PBS Credit" cost: 1 point.

Just wondering if it's  OK or not to do this.

Thanks.

You can't do it here. You can't list anything that's not a book. You can sell your credits for real money if you want.

PBS can't stop people from doing this on other sites. But if the other person doesn't deliver the credit after you've paid, then I can't imagine they would get involved and help you.

Actually, I think you can do it here - and hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong!  But you can post in book bazaar that you're selling credits and have people send you a pm - then you can determine the "method of payment" - which can include credits/points on another site.

You're right Rhonda. Here's an example ~~

PBS credits for Title Trader credits?

Posting in the forum is done, but I don't think posting something like that on your shelf as a "book" would go over well on the site. It would most likely get reported as a suspicious item and be removed.

Correct Melanie! You can only post books on your shelf here at PBS.
