Tips to Sell Textbooks Successfully
Enter your ISBN to compare textbook buyback prices. Enter your book's ISBN into the search field and choose the best deal based on your book's condition. The offer page shows multiple offers from numerous trusted book buyers based on your book's parameters.
Select the fastest payment method. We suggest PayPal or Venmo for a faster transaction; Zelle takes slightly longer to process.
Print the shipping label with the packing slip attached. Pack the textbooks safely and send them to the right book buyer. If you have numerous deals, use a different shipping label and packing slip for each one.
Check your book's condition before selling. Before you sell textbooks, make sure they have little or no cover damage, minimal underlining, writing, or highlighting, no torn pages, an unbroken spine, no moisture or water damage, mold, or other odors or stains before selling them.
Check supplementary materials. If a book comes with additional materials like CDs, include them when shipping your textbooks. If you have the supplementals, you can even get a better deal when you sell college textbooks on BookDeal.
Use "Upload Book Photos" to avoid disputes. Occasionally, a disagreement concerning the state of your book may occur when you sell textbooks. The best way to prevent this is to upload images of your book. After you've printed your packing slips and printing labels, scroll down the page. You'll see an option to upload your book photos.
Sell used books early and off-season. When a new version of your book is released, the value of your book goes down significantly. So, we recommend you to sell textbooks as fast as possible. The only exception is if you can sell books online during the off-season, that is, in August or January.
And that's because demand for books is higher during this period, so prices go up. Few students sell textbooks online at this time, so the laws of supply and demand work to your advantage.
