Guidelines for selling used books for cash in Birmingham AL:
1) Determine which used books and textbooks to sell back online for CASH:
Collect all the books you wish to sell – whether your recent best-selling fiction or old college textbooks. Even if you think that no book buyback website wants to buy an old edition of your calculus textbook.
2) Create a list of ISBNs to sell:
Books are sold back based upon their International Standard Book Number (ISBN) which is like a social security code for books – it is a unique identifier usually on the back cover or copyright page. Consider making this list on your computer as most buyback websites will allow you to paste multiple ISBNs at once to quickly find all their cash prices.
Note: Check to see if your used school book has a sticker over the ISBN on the back cover, double check that ISBN against the ISBN on the copyright page because often bookstores mislabel books. Companies buy back books based upon the true ISBN on the copyright page, not the campus bookstore label applied to your textbook.

4) Read each buyback companies condition and timing guidelines:
Each company that buys back books have similar, but unique, condition criteria that must be met for them to pay the full price they offered for your books. For instance, some companies require CDs or DVDs to be included – others do not. Make sure you read and understand any condition guidelines, and also when a price quote expires.
5) Pack your books carefully when selling books online:
Getting cash for college textbooks or any books is easy, but understand they are like cash. Make sure you use a sturdy box, and use filler (magazine papers, old notes, etc) so your textbooks won’t while in transit. Packing peanuts are not good to use because they break down during shipment and get in between the pages.
6) Shipping your books from Birmingham, AL:
Read the shipping instructions for the company you are selling back your books. Some use a USPS media mail label (add tracking if your books are expensive), UPS, or FedEx. They will all provide you with a free shipping label and usually a packing list as well. You can typically have your books picked up, but might have to take them to a drop-off location.
7) Get paid for your books:
The companies buying back your books will typically receive your books in 3 to 15 business days, and most will issue payment in 3 to 10 business days. Remember these businesses have no control over the companies delivering your books, so sometimes you will need patience. Get paid via PayPal for the fastest cash back as a check will take longer to arrive and can get lost in the mail. However, realize that most companies do not pay the PayPal fees for you so your amount will be reduced by up to 3%.
