It is nothing like ebay. I've been there for years, sent out over 400 books and received over 300, plus a bunch of CDs and DVDs. Postage is between $1.50-$3.00, most around $2. AND you can keep a wishlist and they'll advise you when someone posts a book. I've even gotten Harry Potters, just weeks after they come out, in hardcover, for the price of one credit. And it is free. Once you send 10 books, you get 10 credits, not 4. I find a lot of books on PBS that are not available in used book stores.

Yeah, I joined and then after 2 weeks left that site. Seems you have to list books like on ebay. And then you get "credits" built up to entitle getting a book. Posting 10 in order to begin leaves a person potentially mailing off 10 books(about 3.00 shipping each) in order to "get" 4 at most. I like the local used book stores better. But the idea is a good business.A
