How to Make Money Selling Used College Textbooks Online: College Bookstores

Updated on April 1, 2015

Making Extra Money by Selling College Textbooks

The following websites buy back textbooks. Some are more expensive than others. Of course, you want to make the most money for your books that you can, so finding the store that offers you the best deal is important. All the stores listed offer one great feature. They allow you to just print a pre-paid label that pays for the shipping of the book. All you have to do is find a box. Tape the label on the box. Attach your printed shipping packing slips from their website that they give you and seal it. Then, you can just drop it off at the Post Office. No shipping charges or additional charges of any kind. After that, within a couple weeks, you will receive a check in the mail for the amount agreed upon for the used textbook. They will usually give you a tracking number of some kind that you can follow the process as it goes to see how soon you will get your check. This is the best way to “make money.”

If your goal is just to get rid of your book and get your next textbook for your next semester’s book, then you may want to just “trade in” the book and get a credit on the website. This is really only a good idea if that site charges a fair amount for their books. Typically, this is not the best option, because a site that is the best at buying back books usually is not the cheapest at selling books. You can usually get a better deal by doing these actions separately.

The Websites

The following information contains information about each website, a brief description of the website, which textbooks I used as “buy backs” to see how much they would pay me for them and the price they offered me for each book. I used many because I wanted a strong control group that would give me the most accurate results.

Control Group

I carefully chose the textbooks that were used in this analysis. I wanted newer textbooks which sites would actually want to buy. I chose books that current courses would actually use or have recently used. These may even be textbooks you own and can sell. This is the list:

Cost Accounting by Madhav Rajan, Charles T. Horngren and Srikant M. Datar (2011, Hardcover, Revised); ISBN 0132109174

Marketing Management by Kevin Lane Keller and Philip Kotler (2011, Hardcover, Revised); ISBN 0132102927

Www.bookscouter.com

Description of Website: It’s a comparison book site that lists a lot of bookstores and their prices for the book in question. I found all prices to be accurate when I double checked them. Every ISBN has to be entered separately. If you decide to use this site and choose the first item listed, there is a link that says, “Sell Here,” that takes you to the separate company’s website. There, of course, you can easily add the text to your cart once you set up an account.

Www.amazon.com

Description of Website: Unfortunately, I could not find a way to get an actual check for buy backs. Instead they give you a trade in, where you can sell your textbook and buy your next one. You can also receive an Amazon credit, which is very helpful if you use this site often. However, if you need cash, this option isn’t very helpful. When you get on the site, look on the left side for “Books.” Put your cursor over that word, and you will see “Textbooks,” which you can click on. There, you can sell your books. You enter your ISBN and click the button “go.” Then, choose to “trade-in.” At that point, you will need to have your account information ready.

Description of Website: On this site, you have to enter each ISBN separately. They can pay you in store credit, a check, and by direct deposit – your choice. This has always been one of my favorite websites – for decades! There were quite a few textbooks that were underpriced, so I would not recommend trying to get money via this site.

Description of Website: At this bookstore, you have to “enter” after each ISBN, so it isn’t as fast as some of the others. You can enter the ISBN on the first page which is nice, and then, you can immediately complete your order. I found the prices to be quite lower than those of the competitors so I would not recommend this site.

The Best Price

So which bookstore gives the best price? That’s what this analysis shows. This will also determine how I rate each bookstore. I did not include Amazon since they are offering a credit, not cash. I narrowed it down the top 5.

    Thank you! Yes, this was quite a project, taking more time than I thought, but I remember being in college and needing to sell back books. I'm hoping this will help some college students sell their books back.
