No, it isn't possible.  However, the credits are the same and can be used on either site.  You just have to transfer them from one site to another.  Put "transfer credits" in the Help center to get all the details!

What Cozette said. 

I've transferred tons of credits between SwapADVD and Paperback Swap, because I've many DVDs to give away but not many I want in return. So I transfer the credits and spend them on the books I want instead. It's a wonderful system for me!

Keep in mind that 3 PBS credits = 2 SwapADVD credits, while SwapACD and PBS are 1= 1.

Well for some odd reason I was under the impression that you can do that, since another member offered to give credits from the other sites....I did not take the offer  however. thanks for letting me know

Whatever member offered you credits from another site was wrong to do so because it's not allowed.

I'm not even entirely certain why you would want to give a book away for a SwapADVD credit anyway since transferring between accounts is so easy. Just set yourself up with an account on every site, that's what I've done. Post your DVD set and then transfer the SwapADVD credits to your PBS account instantly. It really is just that easy!
