Some sites that allow users to sell used books and novels online include Amazon.com, AbeBooks.com and Powells.com. Sellers can also consult a book scouting site such as BookScouter.com to get price quotes from numerous websites.
Many retailers that accept used books allow sellers a choice of taking their payment in the form of cash or store credit. Amazon does not offer a cash option, but sellers may use their store credit on most items in the Amazon store. Sellers who choose to take a cash payment for their books may have the money transferred to a PayPal account or wait for a paper check to arrive in the mail.
