Selling books on Amazon.com

My son has college textbooks he's selling. We're not quite sure how it works. The agreement is to mail the item within 2-3 days and states payment will be dispursed to bank account within 14 days. How do we know the buyer paid? Does Amazon take care of the billing/invoice and such with the buyer? It wasn't really clear in the confirmation email from Amazon.

  • you can say paypal only~it that taking 14 days? I have bought a lot, and I use the amazon score to decide. I like the fast send out and score people for doing it. If it comes after a long time I don't.

  • I've done this. They do take care of the money. The buyer gives them the money, and they give it to you. I had chosen Amazon credit because I wanted to just buy more books. You have to be sure to mail it on time.
