Selling casebooks?

Postby ExAnt3 » Thu Feb 09, 2012 1:45 pm

How do people typically go about selling back casebooks? I sold a few of my 1L books to some 1L gunner, but I'm trying to offload the rest. I saw that Amazon has a textbook buyback system, but they pay you in Amazon credits.

Any suggestions?

I've sold them to other students at my school, and via both Amazon.com and Half.com. For both of those, you list the book under the "Used" section, and when someone buys it, you ship it. They charge you a commission. I usually check both to see which one I can earn more money from before I list them.

We have groups that come out and set up tents at the end of every semester. You probably get less, but it takes 2 minutes. No dealing with whiny buyers who want to return or claim the book is unusable because you dared to highlight something or whatever.
