Dear Librarian; PBS Market,

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Dear Librarian-  Wow!  I am so psyched by the PBS Market.  Do you have any tips on how to find out quickly if any of the books on my Wish List are in the Market right now?  – Shopping in Cheyenne

Dear Shy,

Sure!  There are three really easy, quick ways to find out if any of your Wish List books are being offered in the Market:

  1. On the Browse page, under the “Welcome back!” message, is a link to “New Bargain Books” – if any of your Wish List books are in the Market, there will be a link in parentheses, next to the “New Bargain Books” link.   This will take you to a list of your Wish List books currently for sale in the market.
  2. On the Market page, if there are any of your WIsh List books currently available, a link will appear above the Search options to take you to the list of Wish List books that you can purchase from the Market.
  3. If you go to your Wish List and choose “Market books” from the dropdown menu next to ReSort, your Wish List will display any books in the Market at the top of the list.

We hope this helps you find your next great read!

Dear Librarian – The Market is great, and I do plan to get books there, but I hope PaperBackSwap will keep on SWAPPING.  Isn’t that the main point of the club? I love PaperBackSwap!  Are things going to change?  – Stalwart swapper in Springfield

Dear Springy,

Not at all!  PaperBackSwap is dedicated to bookswapping, and the Market is just a great way to get more wished-for books to our members, while supporting the club and keeping membership free.  Every purchase will help defray the cost of running the club, so we can all keep on swapping!

Dear Members; Introducing PBS Market – NEW overstock books at bargain prices

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

We are really happy about what we got for you for St. Valentine’s Day this year! It’s a very special addition to the site: the PBS Market. The Market offers NEW overstock books at bargain prices – many of the books are on your Wish Lists right now!
The Market is not like any bookstore you’ve ever been to – we’ve integrated it with your PaperBackSwap account so you can

  • Opt to use a Book Credit for each book purchase to lower the cost of that book even further
  • See at a glance if any of your Wish List books are currently available in the Market
  • Sort your Wish and Reminder Lists to show books available in the Market at the top of the list
  • Use the Buy from PBS Market button wherever it appears on any listing on the site, to buy a book from the Market
  • Support PBS with every purchase you make

Get books for your friends and family, and really share the love! Encourage them to shop the Market too – every purchase supports the club and helps to keep it free. Books are mailed to any valid USPS address. The shipping is Media Mail (in our testing so far the transit times have been quick), and you can save greatly on shipping and handling by ordering more than one book in a shipment.
You can find the Market under the Search option in the grey menu bar at the top of any page on the site, you can see Market books during your regular book searches, and you can also browse Market books on your Member Homepage by clicking the “New Books for Purchase” link below the lower sliding display.
Head to the Market to browse the selection (over 8000 titles)! New books are added every hour, so check back often. Please note – supplies of some books are limited, so if you see a book you want, you might be wise to grab it. You can read more about the Market in the Help Center.

We hope you’ll love this new feature and the newest way to support the club!

Happy reading to you, your friends and your family,
Richard
and the PaperBackSwap Team
