Ebay or Amazon? [Dec. 18th, 2006|12:44 pm]
Students Parenting


I have decided to sell my old textbooks. Up untilthis emester I just kept them, and then if someone took the same course I woul loan them the book. However we're moving next summer and I don't want to tote them across the country with us.
I played with the idea of selling them back to the University, but they only give you 10
% of cover price, then sell the used books for roughly 75% of the cover price.
I decided I would rather sell the books to someone who needed them, that way they could get affordable books, and I could put more money into my textbook fund.
So then the question arises" Ebay or Amazon?

Has anyone ever sold textbooks online?

I've never sold any textbooks, but I did buy most of mine from the people selling theirs on Amazon. It was a much better experence than dealing with the University Book Store
