Best portal to sell engineering/management books?
« on: January 05, 2014, 07:00:44 PM »
I have a lot of engineering and management books which I plan to sell. I buy stuff on Amazon but I've never tried selling on it.

I know eBay and Craigslist are some other popular seller sites, although I am not sure how these work for used books.

Does anybody have recommendations on the best re-seller site to get the max value for the books? It would be great if the effort to sell was minimal.

Thanks in advance!!

I should a bunch of my books on Amazon. The fees are kinda high, but they are like that everywhere. It was really easy to do and in the future I will use it again.

Make sure to buy the shipping material in bulk ahead of time online to minimize your shipping costs. You can use big bubble wrap envelopes with the media shipping.

I know this isn't what you're looking for, but I plan on giving most of my old textbooks to the library (assuming they'll use them, which I haven't asked about yet). Zero hassle, you're doing your community a solid, and you still get to use 'em later if you want.
