Is there a rule on how much one can sell credits for.  I have way too many and am not looking to make money, just get some of the money I've spent on postage back.  I don't do paypal and haven't had any luck when I've offered credits for sale with a money order.  Any suggestions?

Thanks, Kris

There's really not a specific price range to sell credits, just whatever is the "fair market" value of the ones being sold in the Book Bazaar.  As for not taking paypal, I think some people have used Amazon and had the funds go into a gift card or something like that?

How much are you asking for them?  I see them going for $2.50 in the BB. I would never sell them that cheap. I recently put 20 for sale just in my signature line for $2.85 using Paypal (they charge a fee) or $2.75 for an Amazon gift card.  Within a day another regular forum poster bought them with an Amazon gift card.  Which I used to buy a bunch of WL books under their 4 for 3 sale.  I used to be able to get $3 for them but there's so many people offerign them for $2.50-$2.75 that they just don't sell for $3 anymore.  I think I only got $2.75 because I'm a well known poster here and so was the member that bought them.
