Purchase Credits

A Credit is a form of currency used by LabX Members to run ads for items they are selling.

LabX does not charge any final value fees or commissions. Your up-front payment of credits for your ad is all that you ever pay on LabX. By using the credit system LabX Members have the ability to purchase ads in "bulk" and receive a quantity discount.

You can read the FAQs to find out more about how to purchase credits.
