Subject: PBS Money Gift Certificate ?

I have accrued more points than I need in the near future.

I thought about selling them but would really like PBS money instead of cash.

I looked and saw there were credit gift certificates & Box of Book Certificates but did not see any for PBS Money.

Is there a way for 1 member to send another member PBS Money?

Thanks!

Lisa

Why couldn't someone buy your points with cash (pay through Paypal or something) and then you could just turn it into PBS money?

I do not have PayPal & isn't there a fee to receive money on it?

I just thought it would be so simple to transfer PBS Money

I use D/C on all my books so I use alot of PBS Money

If you set up a basic account with Paypal and specify that those that send you money via paypal have to do so from a checking account and not a credit card, then no there are no fees.  Only if someone pays via paypal with a credit card.  If they do it from a checking account or balance in paypal there is no fee.

now if you set up a business or premier account then there are fees no matter how they pay
