Getting paid takes about 2 weeks at the earliest!!

It takes 2-10 days for them to receive the items, then it takes another 2-4 days for the “inspection” and then another day for the payment to be process to your account. So it’s not a fast or reliable way to get some extra money. It takes WEEKS not days to get paid.

Great Service but...!

I used this app already. Scanning my books is easy to do and deleting the books I don’t want to sell is easy as well. It does take them a while for processing but they do pay as agreed. The only thing I would like is if they are little more fair in prices offered. Some books are worth more than just a few cents. Regardless, it is up to the person selling their books if they want to sell it at the price they are offering or not. I recommend this app. My only suggestion is double checking your book value before selling them. They may be worth your time to try to sell them on your own.

Side Note: Keep a copy of your shipping label. I was unable to locate it in my orders or in any email received when trying to track it. Good thing I had saved a copy on my computer. Due to COVID 19, my package was delayed an extra 2 weeks since it was lost a bit in transit. Eventually, it was delivered and I was paid via PayPal.

App works well

The app is fine. Overall, I had a decent experience. I was able to scan and ship about $21 worth of books. They paid the shipping. The whole thing took maybe 2 or 3 weeks.

The biggest downside is that they didn’t want to buy most of the books I scanned. But since I was going to donate all of them anyway, at least this app was able to get me $21. I would definitely use it again. I’m already working on my next shipment to them.
