Textbooks sell for outrageous prices when you need them for school. The problem is, when you no longer need them you won't find that same rate exchange. In fact, if you try to resell them back to the school bookstore, you are likely to be very disappointed. A book that you paid a couple hundred dollars for may be worth $20 or less.
Fortunately, there is a place that pays more for used textbooks. Valore Books has over 1 million products that can be bought and the process is really simple.
How it Works
All you have to do is enter the ISBN of the book you are looking to sell. You are able to enter multiple ISBNs at once by simply separating each number with a comma, return, or space. Once you have entered the numbers, research the marketplace, find the best price, and get a quote instantly.
Once you have found the vendor you have chosen and accepted, you are given a free shipping label to ship your items back.
What is Acceptable?
Valore Books has quality standards that have to be met before you send in a textbook. The following situations are reasons why a book cannot be accepted through their program:
- Severely damaged book cover, binding, or pages
- Missing or ripped pages
- Water damage
- Excessive writing or highlighting
- An ISBN or edition that is different from the ISBN or edition that was quoted
- Tampered ISBN
- Missing CDs or discs (if required)
Fees and Payments
There are no fees to the seller to use the service that Valore Books provides.
Payment is provided through either PayPal or by check. If you choose PayPal, you can expect to see the payment within 2-7 business days. If you do not have a PayPal account or choose to have a check issued, this takes a little longer and you can expect to see the payment within 7-14 business days.
Sell More Than Books
Valore Books also allows you to sell your old iPhone or iPad. This is a little different but the same basic concept. With an iPhone or iPad, you have to choose your carrier first or pick that it is an unlocked item, then the model of your phone or iPad. You then choose the storage space and the color and the condition of the item. The choices are broken, good, and flawless. Each area lists the acceptable wear of the item to qualify it to fall under anything other than broken.
Track Your Sales
Once you have everything ready to go and have shipped your items back, you are then able to track your sales on their site with the easy-to-use tracking. You are issued a tracking number and can simply go to the site and find out the status of your sale.
Keep in mind that your free shipping label does not cover lost items so you do have the option of adding insurance at your own expense.
Valore Books makes it easy to earn extra cash on the textbooks (iPhones and iPads, too) that you no longer need. It does not cost you anything to sell your item and you are able to get the best possible quote before you commit to sending your item(s) in.
