Help Center - Can I refer others without giving out my email address?
You do not need to share your email address with referrals!
A new member can enter your PaperBackSwap Nickname when she or he registers, to record the referral.
We also provide a PaperBackSwap email, a "dummy" email derived from your PBS nickname, which can be used instead of your personal email address. Your PBS email cannot be used to send or receive email messages.
You can also insert your "PBS email" (or real email) address into linked icons or email sigs, and get referrals automatically.
To choose a PBS Nickname, you must make a PBS Profile in your Account Settings.
