Can we trade PBS money somehow? Member to member, or something within the system? Because I have an odd amount left over, and can't use it to post books, but I decided that I'd rather not use PBS money. I can't afford the fees to fund it for one thing...

Do I really have to decide between losing the money I already put in OR putting more money in and wasting some of my money on the 50 cent fee?

Currently there is not a way to transfer PBS to another member. When I had an odd amount left, I donated it to PBS. Currently I have $1.50 in there, but will leave it til I reup my monthly postage allowance of $20. You can use PBS money for Kiosk purchases, including MarketPlace books now.

If it's enough to cover a couple of DC's then I'd just leave it until I had a multi-book order and buy PBS DC with it.  I stock my PBS money with about $25 once a year or so and then use it for the occassional DC on game books or multi-book orders.
