How Buyback Quotes Work on Bookbyte

Creating a buyback quote on Bookbyte is super easy! Here's how it works:

  1. Enter the title or ISBN of the book(s) you want to sell in the search bar and hit, “Sell.” (Don't forget to double-check the ISBN.) Then you’ll see the copy of your textbook and the price we’re offering for it.

  2. If you're happy with the price, accept the cash offer by clicking, "Continue Sale."

  3. Next, provide shipping address and payment information to complete the buyback quote process.

  4. After the buyback quote has been created, we provide you with a prepaid shipping label that needs to be printed out and attached to the box you use to send your textbook(s).

  5. The book(s) need to be mailed within five business days or seven calendar days to ensure we receive them before the 30-day locked buyback cash quote expires.

  6. It generally takes 7-10 business days for your book(s) to reach our warehouse after shipping.

  7. The book(s) are processed 3-5 business days after we receive them and then payment is issued via Paypal or check.

The most important things we can stress are that first, you double-check the ISBN(s) before sending your book(s). Second, please be sure to mail your books within five business days or 7 calendar days to ensure we receive and process your books before the 30-day buyback cash quote expires—resulting in a different amount (often lower) being paid out to you.
