I don't have a credit card. Can I send something in the mail?

I know it's not likely, but is there any other way to buy credits?

From the help center:


You can buy credits in the PBS Kiosk, which is accessible from the toolbar at the top of any page on the site, or from the right-hand menu of your account page. You need to be logged in to see the Buy Credits option in the Kiosk. The price of credits can be viewed in the Kiosk. In the Kiosk, you can use:
  • PayPal
  • Your credit/debit card
You can also send in a money order/check by snail mail to: PaperBackSwap 3651 Peachtree Pkwy Ste E-390 Suwanee GA 30024-6009 If you send in a check or money order by mail:
  • Please be sure to include your full name (in the form that you used to register at PBS), and a notation of what the money is for (credits, Gift Certificate for Credits, PBS Money, Box-O-Books, Box-O-Books Gift Certificate, Book Journal, etc).
  • You should allow 10 business days for your payment to be processed.

You can also set up a Pay Pal account using a checking or savings account.  You wouldn't need a credit card then.

My PayPal is attached directly to my bank account. It takes a couple weeks to get it verified, as the have to veryify your house address as well as you band transactions, but then it's great for auto transfers.

I have had credits for sale for quite awhile and will take Pay Pal, checks or money orders.  The latter two take a bit longer while they are in the mail.  They are $3 each, and I usually sell them in lots of 5 @ $15 per lot.  If interested, send me a PM.

Yeah I just sold $80 worth of them last week. Paypal is the easiest you just give the person buying them your email address and they send the money on to you.
