Selling textbooks is something every student does at the end of every semester. We spend a good amount of money on them and we want to sell them right away to get the money to turn around and buy books for the following semester.
Back in the day when students finished the classes for their online Bachelors programs they would sell their used textbook back to their college bookstore. Things are different now and students are turning to the Internet to quickly get rid of all their used textbooks.
Here are tips for selling your used textbooks online.
Get the ISBN Number
The ISBN number is going to help make listing and selling your textbook a lot easier. When you include the ISBN number it will show all the information needed for the listing as well as a photo of the book. The only thing you will have to include is the book’s condition.
List your Book
Think about how much you want to sell it for and go ahead and list the book. If you use Amazon they will let you know what the average selling price is for the book based on the condition. Before it’s officially listed Amazon will let you know how much you will receive for the item, including the shipping credit and what Amazon takes in fees.
Keep Track of Everything
If you’re listing multiple books keep track of everything. You will get an e-mail when your book’s sold, but it’s good to keep track if it ends up in your spam box.
