I have some points on bookmooch.com. I want to trade them for credits here on Paperbackswap. 1 point for 1 credit. Would consider selling them.

Matt - the site does not allow posts asking for trading of PBS points for anything but books. Here is the post that the site owner posted to:

Swapping Bookmooch Points

For anyone that does want to search the thread the contents of Richard's post:

You can sell your PBS Credits here.  (And this should be done in the Book Bazaar, [  ].)

You cannot sell anything else.

That means that [ ], you could have posted "Anyone want to sell me some credits?  Contact me by PM if so," and then in Personal Messages explained what you are willing to pay.  But you should not post a topic selling anything for credits.  If in PM negotiations anyone was willing to accept the currency of another site for PBS credits, then you could make the exchange.  

It is a small point, but there you have it.  Don't hawk your wares (whatever they are) for credits.   But you can ask if anyone is looking to sell credits, and negotiate payment with them privately.

We are sure someone else will find a way to do the above inappropriately somehow, and we will hear from members again asking us to clarify, but for now this is the ruling.

You also need to watch your percentage at Bookmooch.   It works differently then here.  You can not use points when you reach a certain give/get percentage.  I forget exactly how it works. BM gives you credits for every book you list and book marked recieved,  so someone could have lots of points if they had lots of books listed,  but may only be able to use a small number, if they have not given many books.  It is hard to explain, sorry.

You'd also be more likely to find takers at BM.   The folks who want credits at a site are more likely to be active at that site than at another.  So, if you wanted PBS credits I'd suggest posting here, but since you want BM credits I'd suggest posting there.
