Are you a student, recently qualified or perhaps you've just been hoarding your old school books? Well, we will buy textbooks as well as novels! So there's nothing stopping you.

When you think about the condition of your books, CD's, DVD,s and gadgets, ask yourself if you would buy the book in the condition that you would like to send it to us, should it be available to you at a book store or online.
Therefore, in a nutshell, we accept all kinds of books from your personal collection that are in SALEABLE condition

Sell it Back currently accepts Books and Media (CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray's and Video Games). All Items are required to pass the acceptance criteria. Items that fail to meet these acceptance criteria will be rejected by our inspection team and recycled.

Please see our quality guide if you are unsure if your item is in a saleable condition

The app works fine but

The app works absolutely fine but I gave 3 stars because I was appalled at the price I was offered! Brand new books, read only once that cost me £40-£50 were going to be bought back for 0.18p! I scanned about 20 books (I’m clearing out my flat) and if I bought these from the shop I would have spent nearly £200 and this app offered me £19. No, thanks! I went on Facebook marketplace and I sold them effortlessly for the price I expected.

Hi Lintu09,
Thank you so much for your review. We apologise for the disappointment caused. The pricing algorithm is complex and factors in a myriad of permutations and combinations, that unfortunately cannot be altered to cater to individual customers.
We hope you appreciate the difference between selling to us or other similar marketplaces like us (business) versus selling directly to the end customer/user (individual).
There is absolutely no obligation for you to sell to us and you are free to do as you please with your property. The important thing here is that your books have found a book lover and that’s all that matters!
Thank you!

A real find

I’ve been trying to get rid of several hundred books and since lockdown am finding charity shops don’t want donations as they’ve been inundated. It seems that everyone has had a clear out at the same time. I have started selling them to Sellitback and can’t recommend this app highly enough. Yes, it’s surprising and disappointing when an expensive book is rejected but the company make it very clear that they operate according to demand. Bestsellers and genre fiction is often rejected or a very low offer made. On the other hand, textbooks and self-help books have often netted me £2 or £3. Sellers are not entitled to receive what they think their books are worth, nor are they forced to use this app!

Easy to use

We had a lot of books we needed to sell. The app is really easy to use and accepted a good part of the books we had. Once the package was sent we got confirmation when the order was processed and money all in a couple of weeks.
