I know this isn't really a PBS question, but maybe someone can answer it for me.  There have been times when I ran out of credits that I would have loved to buy some.  I have set up a Paypal account for this, but I still don't know how to use it.  I guess the first time is scary.  How do I get the money to people through Paypal?

Get their paypal email address. Once you have logged into PayPal, click "Send Money". Put their email address in. Make sure all your infomation is correct then send it.

Although, you can also just use your VISA instead of Paypal.

Thank you!  Still a little scared to try it, but I was scared to try PBS and I love it!

When I sell credits I just PM the person w/my paypal email address and then transfer the credits when I see the $ has been added.  THen I use the Paypal $ to buy postage.

You can do a search on the bazaar in the forums for people selling credits.


Yes. PBS takes paypal.  You can use it to buy credits, postage, etc.

Go to Kiosk > Book Credits, add the desired quantity of credits to your cart, and you'll see a button for "Secure Checkout with PayPal"
