I am a fairly new member, just recently I started being active here, and there are a lot of books I want. I don't have a credit card, and really can't afford the full price for credits, so if anyone has paypal and would be willing to sell me credits, please let me know! I am disabled and spend most of my at-home time reading (about 4 hours a day or more!) Please PM me if you are willing to help. Thanks! :)

The book bazaar often has people selling credits for $3--you might want to check over there and see if any are being sold.

PBS takes PayPal as well, so that shouldn't be a problem for you if no one is selling any in the Bazaar. But there is now an ongoing topic for selling & buying credits in the BB and you should find someone interested in selling at $3 which is what the going rate is.

Also, you can find some good deals in the Book Bazaar and get the most for your credits.  People are always offering deals on their shelves so you can get 2 or 3 or more books for one credit.

I tried ordering credits and all it had on the order page was a place for credit card info. So... where do they accept paypal???

Paypal funds can come out of your checking acct or from a credit card.  
Go to Paypal.com and sign up.....

Kris, when you put credits into your shopping cart, if you look down the page a bit on the right-hand side, it says something like - secure checkout - and right below that it says something like - checkout with PayPal.

I don't have a lot at the moment, but I have sold a lot of credits in the past, and I could sell you 5 of them with Pay Pal payment for $15.  Send me a note if interested, and we will set it up.
