If you've sold a textbook on,, etc.

How does that work? I know that some give you quotes on how much you'll get for them, but I'm just wondering about things like shipping, getting your money, etc.

  • I know you've asked questions about this before. Do you have any local universities? I was going to do, but they didn't want to give me anything for my books... so I took them to the local university at their buy back and sold them for a great rate. I would try that first.

  • Our college does buy them back, but it's a total rip off (like last semester, I got $20 back for a new book that I'd paid about $140 for, and it was supposed to be a 50% back book). I'm trying to figure out all my options for selling these things lol. I've already listed them in a local paper that's just for things that are for sale, but I'm trying to find as many back up options as possible just in case. I was quoted a nice amount on and, but I'm waiting to see if I get any calls first.
