One of the most popular ways to sell and buy college textbooks is Half.com. It is a part of Ebay, which sells books, among other things, at a fixed price. Half.com is really easy to use. You don’t have to take pictures of your book or even write a description (other than the book condition). All you have to do is locate the book’s ISBN, insert it in a designated box and Half.com will do the rest.
If you are not sure how much to list your book for, Half.com has a neat feature, which shows you the average price the same books were sold for and which conditions they were in.
Listing the books is free, so if you end up not selling it, you don’t have to pay a penny for having it listed. If your book sells, you have to pay the final fee, which depends on the amount you sold your book for. Here is the list of current commission rates on Half.com:
In order to get a Half.com account you need to have a valid credit card and live in the United States. You will also need a checking account, because this is how Half.com is going to pay you when your book sells.
