Now I know students are low on the moolah and all students are seeking ways to make some money! Doing some research I found that selling back your old textbooks can get you some quick cash, deposited right into your PayPal account. Here are a few of the ones I researched that seem quite promising and legitimate!
Cash 4 books This site offers an easy solution and easy payment. Enter your books’ ISBN numbers, get a quote, print your postage and then get your money. Used books are of course accepted.
I also loved BookFinder.com – this site allows you to compare sites to see which one will give you the most cash for your used books. It also has a search feature that lets you find virtually any book, including those no longer in print and prices it in your currency. Currencies go beyond the normal Pound, Euro and US Dollar to include the Eastern Caribbean Dollar and Argentinian Pesos, just to name a few.
Check out this blog post at www.studentuniverse.com that lists some sites to buy back texts and where you can even rent a textbook! Yes rent a text – the world has evolved. The article lists sites such as Chegg and ecampus.com.
International students can visit AbeBooks for International text book versions and for international shipping. Also www.bookdepository.com ships internationally , worldwide free by post. I personally know university students who have used bookdepository successfully. Although they may not buy back books, the free shipping they offer is sure worth a look. They also have many genres of books available and their stock is not limited to texts.
Before you rush out always do a quick Google search for customer reviews on these or any book resellers. I hope you make some money or at least get some cheap books to help you in your studies!
