I swap credits between the sites. What did you need to know?

I'm a SwapaCD member too.  I haven't tried transfering credits yet.  I'm planning on trying as I need the credits on PBS.  When my sent books get marked as received I might "repay" my SwapaCD account.  Does the credit swapping go smoothly?

Yes the credit swaping goes smoothly.  It's usually pretty instantaneous.  I like swapping between swapadvd.com and paperbackswap.com more.  I believe the current conversion rate between a DVD credit and a Paperback credit is 2 DVD credits for 3 paperback credits...

I think you need to go to the DVD or CD page to find the option.  But once there, it goes easy.  Has a diagram to click on where you want from and to.  I move my credits between all three sites.

Look in the top menu under the "kisosk" heading. Menu item #5 is "transfer credits"

It's quick and easy, done it many times.

If you are buying credits, buying from swapadvd is cheaper than paperbackswap (only slightly). I transfer credits all the time, or at least I did before I stopped buying credits for lent.
