What Will I Get for My Used Books?

That’s the most common question people ask when looking to sell their used and unwanted books for cold hard cash. 

Generally speaking the re-sale value of most used books is usually a quarter to a fifth of the original purchase price but what most people fail to take into account when selling their unwanted books for cash is the time and effort it takes to actually get the books sold.

While you might get a higher selling price for a few of your unwanted books selling them at your own garage sale or even on ebay, you can’t avoid wasting a considerable amount of time organizing your garage sale and then you have to waste a whole day sitting outside your home and deal with people rummaging through your collection of books. It’s a similar case with ebay, you still have to organize each auction and even pay for the advertising up front and it can be really disappointing when your book auction fails to sell!

With selling your books online through a reliable and reputable book buyback site that is part of a used book merchant network you don’t have such problems. You can sell all your books at once without wasting time with garage sales or ebay auctions and usually receive a cheque for your used and unwanted books within 14 days of pasting your books and even quicker if you opt to receive payment into your paypal account.

But still the question remains, how much can I expect to receive from each of my used books by selling them to a book buyback site like Cash4Books?

Well it really depends on the type of books you have to sell and the quantity of each one of your books is in circulation. Usually books that have enormous print runs will sell for a lot less and the Harry Potter series of novels is a good example.

But the resale value of some non-fiction or instructional books can often be surprising, even if they are somewhat ‘old’.

Here’s list of examples of what some books sell for on the Books4Cash website……

9781429215978 9780670022410 9781608952786
$35.94 $3.65 $7.73
9780323071505 9781576839546 9780495386933
$16.62 $3.38 $15.38

Sell Books for Cash for Friends or Family


In fact it's likely that many of your friends and family have a large stash of unwanted books living in a box in the ceiling which has been totally forgotten about, I would hazard a guess that most people don't know how to sell books for cash through online book buyback sites.

I was helping my grandma clean out her shed some weeks ago and stumbled across three boxes of books.

Asking my she would like to do with them I was horrified at her reply.

'Ah just throw them out love' was her my Grandma's reply.

After overcoming my horror of throwing perfectly good books into the trash, I managed to convince my lovely Gran to let me try and sell some of them online through a book buyback site.

Well the look on my Grandma's face when I handed her $165.50 after selling all but seven of the used books.

To say my Grandma was a bit upset with herself that she nearly through over a hundred dollars into the trash would be an understatement, but the story does not end here.

Ebay, Amazon or Book Buyback Site


I have personally tried ebay and to be honest trying to sell books on ebay is a nightmare.

Ebay is flooded with used books and unless you have a rare book that might be signed by an author and considered a collectors item. You could in fact make a loss for your trouble and at best break even and still have wasted a lot of your personal time.

As far as Amazon goes they are pirates with the prices they offer for used books and in my honest opinion if you have a large number of books to sell you will get a much better price from smaller online book buyback sites.

Ironically if you look to smaller sites that buyback books, you generally get a slightly better price for your pre-loved books.

In fact you may be surprised to see the prices paid for many books are quite competitive.

I sold fourteen books just recently and the average price I was quoted for each book was around $6 dollars.

I received  a little under $85 for a for about ten minutes work!

But it really depends on the books that you have.

Convenience is a big plus, not having to waste time organizing ebay listings or having garage sale and wasting a whole day watching people rifle through your unwanted book collection.

Having a website buy back books you no longer want or need quickly and easily and not having to worry about poastage is a valuable convenience.

Convenient Way to Sell Books for Cash

If you love reading books as much I do, you probably have a huge collection of all types of books in boxes stored away in your home because your book case has been filled up a long time ago.

In fact my spare room was once a ‘store room’ filled with boxes of all manner of books which I had read or just didn’t have the time to read.

Living in a small unit I was really short on space so I just had to do something and I really couldn't bring myself to throw perfectly good books away so I tried to sell them on ebay.
Bad Idea!

I quickly found out that Ebay is absolutely saturated hundreds of other people were trying to palm off their collections of space hungry books as well.

In the end I found out that selling perfectly good books on ebay is not only a real hassle, its time consuming and extremely hard to make a profit after selling costs and shipping.

Then I came across a cool website which provides a quick and easy way to sell books for cash.
This website makes things so easy you can virtually sell back your books in minutes.
All you basically have to do is create an account, type in the ISBN number found on the back cover of each book on the form on the site, click on the price my book button and hey presto!

You instantly get the offered amount for your books.

Whats even more amazing is they provide a shipping label for your books right off their site for free, so you don’t even have to pay for shipping!

They even offer a text book buyback.

So if you have a collection of books which you have read or no longer want and would love to pass them on for other readers to appreciate while getting some cash in your pocket.
