First I would look in teh book bazaar and see what people are asking for them. Then decide how much you want for them and how many you want to sell.  I think most people go through Paypal although some take a check or money order. I wouldn't transfer any credits until it cleared though. Of course I also wouldn't buy any with a check or M.O. either.  But not everyone has paypal.  Just make a post in the BB with how many you have to sell and how much you want.  When someone PMs you and wants to buy some you give them your paypal email address. THey transfer the money and when you see it you buddy the credits. THat's how I've always done it.  Paypal does charge some fees and those fees area based on what kind of account you have. I pay a higher fee because I sell books on another website and have a merchant account.  So you might to check on Paypal to see what it'll cost first.  It also depends on how they pay. 

It's pretty easy though.

I too, have a bunch of credits I'm thinking of selling, so thank you for the link and advice. Since I don't have Paypal, I like the E-giftcard idea the best (I'm thinking B&N, Amazon, or Borders ;)
