Who pays for shipping when selling back textbooks?
Usually the store buying the books will pay for the shipping. Most of them will provide you a prepaid shipping label you simply print out and tape it to the box with your books in it. Simply drop the box in the mail and you don't need to mess with anything else!
I can't get the barcode scanner to work on the app, what's up?
The barcode scanner is kind of picky and needs a lot of light to work properly. Make sure you're in a well lit room so it can see the bar code clearly. If it still won't work please just go to the page where you manually enter it and and type out the ISBN.
Are there any international sites that buy textbooks back?
We have seen a few sites located in Canada that buy back textbooks but not very many. Other than that it seems like it's something that is only located in the US at this time. If you find some stores that buy books back out of the USA please let us know and we can see about making an international version of our app.
Do I make more money selling books back online or in a store?
We've seen that you make quite a bit more money selling back your books online than in a local bookstore. Most of the local bookstores know there isn't much competition and can get away with paying you as little as possible for your books. While online there are a bunch of stores and they heavily compete on price to get your books.
