College is more expensive than ever, and in an economy that continues a longstanding downturn, many students are finding it harder than ever to fund their educations. Despite this, many of them have piles of mandatory textbooks that once the semester is over, are useless to them. Sell Textbooks for Cash is a site that encourages students to resell their old textbooks in order to make back their investment and put it back into their education. They have recently released an ISBN checking service that will tell individuals where they can get the best deal when selling their books.
All textbooks come with their ISBN listed on the cover, usually above the barcode used for retailers. This allows the booked to be cataloged in a library and easily identified during stock takes. Students can now use this number to find second hand copies being sold online and see how much others are getting for them, so they too can go where the best deal is.
The price comparison search offers price listings for major providers which can then be clicked through so that registered users can add their book for sale in the place they can demand the best price for it. The service is now also available on iPhone and Android.
A spokesperson for Sell Textbooks For Cash, “Because the ISBN is a universal means of identifying a book, it allows us to easily identify the book the student is trying to sell and cross reference the best price offered for that book from major providers like Amazon, eCampus and Sell Back Your Book. By performing this price comparison individuals can see where the demand for their book is highest and where they can get the best price, often recouping as much as 75% of the original retail value.”

Textbookdollars, one of the leading U.S. purchasers of used textbooks, continued its industry-leading innovations by announcing free shipping on all buybacks of textbooks that total at least $15.
The founder of the company, Michael Rozinsky, added to the announcement by commenting, “We’ve been very pleased with the response to our easy-to-use website and 1,2,3 process for cashing in on your used textbooks. We are taking this step to make it even easier for students and individuals to take advantage of our services.”
Students who have used textbooks simply go to the website, enter the title of their textbook for a quick search and indication of the price offered, ship out any titles found, and get promptly paid via PayPal. With the new free shipping service many students will find this a simple and fast way to put dollars back in their pockets with almost no effort and no expense.
Concluding his announcement, Rozinsky stated, “We seek to set the trends in our market and have done so by such offers as accepting water-damaged books and textbooks with writing and highlighting on the pages. Along with our user-friendly website, we see this as just one more convenience for our customers.”
To implement the new process, the company has added one additional printout to its website. Once students have gone to the website, checked the prices offered and selected the books they seek to sell and ship to Textbookdollars, they simply hit enter. The first form printed serves as a confirmation and packing slip. If the total of the books being sent for buyback totals at least $15, a second item is printed as a FREE UPS shipping label. The student simply affixes this to his package, drops it off, and waits for the payment to show up in the PayPal account they designate.
Textbookdollars accepts a wide variety of used and new textbooks and their website is constantly updated with the list of textbooks it is buying and the prices offered.
