I read that, in theory, its possible to sell surplus credits.   How does one arrange for payment when selling books?  The only possibility that occurs to me is paypal.  Are there other ways?   What's the best way to handle this?

Some people ask for amazon gift cards (the e-gift cards).

I've sold credits and asked for a money order. With repeat buyers I've accepted checks. I've not had a problem.

When I've sold credits, I asked for either Paypal payment or an Amazon GC.

Look around the Book Bazaar Forum (that is where selling must be done) and you will see some of the posts by people selling and how they handle it.

In addition, check to see how long they have been a member. Protect yourself.

I'm moving. Been cleaning off my bookshelf with deals and donating to the FOL. Just sold some credits to a long term member who walked me through it.

Of course I meant credits.
