Has anyone tried to sell their used books ? OK Apparently, there is absolublty no other way shape or form for selling textbooks other than using Amazon.com, it would seem. There must be a monopoly with them, because if you have books for a previous semester that you truly want to sell simply to use for funds for new books for the next semester, to have a well balanced school budget, then you must sell it on Amazon, there is no where else to sell it- If you list a book on Amazon it is sold in just hours much of the time, depending on the book. However on other sites, regardless of the book title it does not sell. On Ebay NO ONE buys the books, the books just sit there and sit there and no one buys them. On Alebris, their site is configured in a way that is just ridiculous, after they charge your bank account $20 for setting up an account then it's certainly not second nature on how to tinker with their site to even have a clue on how to actually set up any listings on their site, and they barely mention in the fine print that you'll be charged $20 to use their so called book selling service that'll yield nothing anyways. Then there are all these other sites that get no traffic so you may as well not even bother selling your books on their sites. Then there is the college bookstores at your campus that will give you 2 cents back for books that you spent at least $100 dollars on each.
