Is there any way to transfer credits to SwapaCD or SwapaDVD?

As it so happens, I have a number of books to get rid of (but no DVDs) and a couple of DVDs I'm looking for.

Yes you can, I've done so on several occasions, just go into your SwapaDVD account and look under Kiosk, it is the bottom option Transfer Credits, then you want to click on the arrow between the two sites..

 

Example... you would click on the arrow between Paperbackswap & DVD swap to transfer credits from your Paperbackswap account to your DVD swap account... now if you wanted to do it in reverse, you'd click on the 2nd arrow between DVDswap and Paperbackswap.  The same goes for CD swap account..

 

It seems that the DVDswap site is the middle site and that is how you would do any transfers between the 3 sites.. :)

I see it's a 3-to-2 from PBS to SwapaDVD. What's the transfer rate from DVD to the CD site?

From DVD to (CD or Books) is 2 to 3.   CD and Books are 1-1.

OK, thanks!

But I can't do a 1-1 CD-book transfer, can I? Or am I missing something?

yep, you can transfer 1 credit from PBS and it will transfer as 1 credit to swapaCD and vice versa

Go to swapaCD and go to "My Account"  On that page, you'll see several links in red letters under the "My Account" tab.  The link on the right says, "transfer credits."  http://www.swapacd.com/members/index.php  <not sure if this link will work for you

For some reason, the same option is not listed under PBS-My Account.

You can also use the same method on swapaDVD...."My Account"  Green lettered link under My Account tab "Transfer Credits"

I signed up for DVD Swap and got out the DVDs that I had decided to post. Well, they aren't in the system. AND they all have the same ISBN or UPC or whatever and that's already listed as something else, so I can't list them as my first 10. My tour guide was going to find out if I could exchange credits from here without listing 10 DVDs to start but I haven't heard from her in a month.

Susan, I think you can. You just have to have a minimum of 3.

At any rate, I just successfully transferred my 1 credit from here to SwapaCD without posting anything over there.

Susan, I can't find your question in the SwapaDVD help docs, but I'm pretty sure you can order DVDs using credits you've transferred from this site or the CD site.  I don't know if you can buy credits, though, from the kiosk if you haven't posted your 10 DVDs. 

You can offer your DVDs that aren't in the system on the DVD bazaar for full credit.  If you don't get any takers after a while you might offer a deal on them like 3 for 2  or  2 for 1.

Thanks for the help. I had thought I might fill out my DVD collection by using some of credits here. I just was unclear if I could do anything without having listed the original 10.

Hi Susan,

You don't have to list DVD's on SwapaDVD to order DVD's.  If you post 10 you get the gift credits, but it's not a requirement.  You are welcome to either transfer credits from here or purchase credits in the bazaar or kiosk.  I'm also a TG at SwapaDVD if you have any questions :)

Susan, I haven't listed my original 10 yet, and I've transfered credits back and forth.  I've ordered several there.

I have very few DVDs (request very few also), and some of those I had weren't in the system. Every now and then I find one to post.  I'm slowly working towards the 10.

I have a bunch of CDs and boxes of books, so I'm not too worried. :)
