Tips to Sell Textbooks Successfully

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

BookDeal offers you competitive prices from different buyback vendors, allowing you to sell textbooks at the highest prices. Rather than selling your college books to campus bookstores, use BookDeal to get the best offers.

You get attractive offers right away when you enter your ISBN. Then, you choose your preferred options and ship your textbooks for FREE! BookDeal makes it easy to sell college textbooks, and it only takes a few minutes. No stress. No lenghty selling process. Yes free shipping.

The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a 13-digit number (previously a 10-digit number) that identifies a book. It's a unique identification for published books and helps you to sell textbooks smoothly. You can find the ISBN on your textbook's back cover, above or near the barcode.
You can also use the printed ISBN on the copyright page if there is a sticker on the back cover of your books or if there is no ISBN on the back cover. Only use the ISBN found on the barcode on the back or front cover for loose-leaf books.
You can't sell textbooks without ISBN at the moment.

When the book buyer receives your textbooks, you'll get paid within five business days. However, the exact timeframe of your payment depends on the distance between you and the book buyer. And that's because of the time it takes to deliver the package. Remember that processing times may be longer during peak buyback periods (8/15-9/30, 12/15-1/30) and if weather disasters such as hurricanes, blizzards, etc., affect your book buyer's facility.

Get a sturdy box that will fit your textbooks. You can use packing materials such as newspaper, bubble wrap, paper, etc., to fill all empty spaces inside the box. Include supplementary materials and a packing slip, and use packing tape to seal the box tightly.
Remember to place the shipping label on top, and depending on the shipping label offered, drop your package at your nearest UPS, FedEx, or USPS office. Make sure to ship your textbooks within seven days after making your deal.
We recommend checking our Packing Guidelines for more details.

After packing your books in a box, drop them off at your nearest USPS, FedEx, or UPS location, depending on the shipping label provided. Make sure to ship your books within seven days of completing your transaction.
When you ship your books on schedule, you can rest assured that you'll get paid the quoted amount. However, after seven days, the quotes will expire, and you'll have to make a new transaction.

If there are no current offers for your books, this means that our book-buyers are not buying your books at this time, or your books don't have a resale value. You can try another time for better offers.

We recommend donating or recycling any used books you have with no or little value, that is, after you've tried checking on BookDeal again.
