HOW CAN WE BUY SO MUCH?
Quite simply, we have the industry's largest database. A typical wholesaler has 10,000-100,000 titles, and we have upward of 750,000. This includes countless older editions.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE INVENTORY WE BUY?
The inventory you send our way is sold through our extensive retail and wholesale relationships (domestic and international) or donated to the International Book Project.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
There are two options: SELF-SCAN or CONCIERGE.
- Self-scan: we provide the hardware and free shipping. You scan your inventory, determine what you want to ship and get advanced on those boxes as soon as you send us the tracking labels.
- Concierge: need help? Have our regional rep stop by and do the heavy lifting for you. They come, they scan, they box and ship -- you get paid on the spot
HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO BETTER WORLD BOOKS?
We are very similar to Better World Books except we pay higher prices. Better World Books is a for profit textbook retailer, did over $65m in revenue last year and are the number 1 textbook vendor on Amazon. We are the step before Better World Books. To truly maximize the value of your dead stock we recommend you liquidate what you can through us at market rates for your inventory, and then send any remaining (truly) dead stock to Better World Books at their per carton rate.
