 Selling - Texbooks

    Selling textbooks on Half.com is quick, easy, and fun! Here are a few helpful tips that will help you sell the right book at a great price.

    • Always use the sell your item page to list a book by its ISBN. That will guarantee you are listing the book in the correct place. The sell your item page can be found here.

      • Note: Beginning January 1, 2007, all books will be identified by a 13-digit ISBN. However, you can still search for books on Half.com with either the old 10-digit or new 13-digit ISBN.

    • Be sure to indicate you will ship "Expedited" so that buyers can choose this option to get their books fast.

    • List your textbooks at a competitive price. If you have a brand new textbook in a popular course, you can often sell it on Half.com for a few dollars less than the list price! Of course, if many other members have listed the same book, you'll probably want to set your asking price at or near the lowest price offered.

    • You can sell textbooks any time of the year, but make sure to have all your books listed during August, September, January, and February. These are the months when textbooks sell fastest and at the highest prices.

    Always use half.com's guidelines for listing textbooks in their appropriate conditions. Those guidelines can be found here.
