Good evening everyone!

I just posted my first ten books and got the two credits. Now, if I post more books will I get more credits and if so, how many credits do I get (and per how many posted books)

For example, is it one credit per everyone three books posted, or one per one... etc... OR do I need to buy them?

I want to make sure I am doing this right cause I'd rather post books then spend money, or does it depend if someone orders a book I have?

THANKS! Shayla

You will not receive anymore free credits. You will earn a credit for every book that is requested and makes it to the recipient.

PBS does not give credits for posting books. Only when you sign up they do this. I believe its to encourage people to sign up. Plus depending on what books you post it may be awhile before you get your first request.

No, you don't get any more credits for posting more books.  The two free credits are just to get you started, and after those you only get credits by sending out books and having them marked received, or by buying more credits.

I see you've been a member since October, so just let me say that I'm glad that you finally decided to post enough books to get your credits!

Shayla, the way you get credits now is to send out books that someone orders from you (you get a credit when the books is received) or to buy them.

Thanks for the fast replies!

Yes, I signed up in October and had books but I moved in with my Fiancee and completely forgot to post them! :-( well, I am glad I finally did! I look forward to using this site.


THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP! :-D Have a good weekend!

I see that all of your currently listed books are Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys.  They aren't my cup-of-tea, but there are over 200 of the various ND/HB mystreries on the wishlist of somebody (some of lots of somebodies).  Somebody will probably be requesting one of them from you.  The more books you list the sooner and the more books that you will get requested, and thus you will pile up some credits.

Hi Shayla, glad to see you posting.  If you click on the Help Center tab, then click on the TITLE of the "browse help topics" box, you will get a screen that lists the basics of how the club works.  Always feel free to ask questions in the forums or in live help, but if you read the basic help topics you'll get a lot of the information you need very easily.  Keep posting those books!
