Great Option For Old Textbooks!

So, I’ve sent 2 orders to Booksrun. Some of those textbooks I had for 6+ years. The texts I sent include typical bio or math textbooks and both classical & modern literature for class use. Honestly, this is the only buy-back site that I’ve used, but I did check w/other sites & Booksrun sometimes paid more, but at least comparable prices for the books. One of the important things are that they’re fair when pricing. The app itself is super easy & great to use when you’re wanting to sell 15 or 20+ books! I’ll definitely be using these guys again!

Scammers and Liars

They will make up bogus claims in order to not pay for some of your books. They tried to claim my books had water damage and the pictures they sent looked like someone had literally just splashed some water on the books before taking the picture. When I called them out on it, then they said that the book “had been rebound” which was an absolute lie. I sent multiple packages at the same time and when they got the next package they claimed one of my books had pages detached but couldn’t provide any pictures to prove it. I emailed them and asked for pictures but they simply wouldn’t respond because they were lying to begin with. This is also why they don’t offer free return shipping via media mail which costs very little. They try to charge you to get your books returned in the hopes that you won’t want to spend the money and they get to keep it and still resell it. If you think a company that makes its money reselling books is going to throw away a $100 textbook over extremely minor damage then you need to think again. When they skim a couple books off the top with their bogus claims, it means free money for them. If you do pay the money to have your book sent back to you, they make money that way as well because the shipping cost is well below what they charge you. They are as unethical as a company can be.

Not worth it

I recently sold two very new and recent volumes to BooksRun. I received an email today saying that one of my textbooks had water damage. They sent pictures as proof. The damage must have occurred during transit because I inspected the books prior to sending them. (I recommend taking your own pictures to avoid this happening.) They offer to send the textbook back (for $8.00 in shopping costs). So my options are: receive $5.00 for my $50 textbook, or pay them $8.00 to get it back. Either way, I was pretty disappointed that books in such perfect condition could lose so much value in just a semesters worth of time. I didn’t see any other sites with better options, so I decided to sell the books even though I am only getting a very small percentage back. I’m curious to know how much these textbooks will get resold for. I can understand that companies need a profit margin, but unfortunately this just isn’t worth it. I was better off trying to sell them on Facebook Market Place or on the college platform to incoming students. Needless to say that I will not be using this platform again, nor recommending it to my students.
