App is buggy

They do pay you the agreed upon price for the books, but half the time the scanner doesn’t pick up the barcodes and you have to type in the ISBN number. Also, it’s difficult to complete a sale because there’s a bug that says you are not signed in when you are, so you have to keep trying it to get it to go though. Honestly, it’s the best sellback books app, but it’s got a lot of issues.

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.

Great service, app has a few issues

Something happened to this app, there are a few changes that were not for the better. I’ve found that the scanner works great (almost too good, as frequently it scans my book, adds it to my cart, then scans it AGAIN and says “this book is already in your cart” before I can move the phone away from the book).

But now I can no longer see the total $ amount of all the books in my cart- kind of important, since there is a $7.50 minimum for sell-back.

Another change I dislike is the ability to swipe-and-remove a book as soon as I’ve scanned it. Instead I have to leave the Scanner, go into the Cart, and remove from there. Why change what worked?

Also, I too have experienced the anguish of being logged in and having a full cart, then getting the “please log in” error message when I try to Complete Sale.

One other bug is scanning a book, being told it is worth “$0.48”, then later the app not wanting that book after all. “$0.48” seems to be the kiss of death- beware if your book has that value! It might not be true.

I still use this app/service very frequently, but would be happier if some of the bugs were fixed.
