Some nationwide retailers and websites that buy and sell used college textbooks are Amazon.com, Half.com, Barnes and Noble, and eCampus.com. Users may sell textbooks for either cash or store credit to use toward the purchase of new textbooks.
Amazon.com has competitive textbook prices as well as rental options. Amazon.com offers trade-in store credit in the form of Amazon gift cards for books in good condition.
Similarly, eCampus.com offers both store credit as well as cash for textbook sales, but the cash value is always lower than the trade-in store credit value. Textbooks can have notes and highlighting in them.
Barnes and Noble has new, used and rental options for purchasing textbooks. The company only pays via cash, check or PayPal, and there is a $10 minimum requirement for any sell order.
Half.com functions like its sister site eBay, allowing users to list textbooks for sale.
