Aug 2019 good communication , quick turn-around
Jul 2019 One of my Favorite GoTo Book Buyers! Thank you for your Business!!
Jun 2019 They used to be really quick and easy to work with but now you can only ship one box to them. If you need additional labels, you need to email them and deal with their customer service department. CS is fine but it's just the time delay and the inexplicable removal of the label quantity selection from their site that is frustrating.
May 2019 Probably my most used vendor within the Bookscouter roster. Consistently processes and sends payment in timely manner every time. Have been using their services for more than a year now and no complaints or concerns.
May 2019 Super happy with my experience. I was very skeptical of the mixed reviews. I mailed in about 25 books (30lbs) and got the money via PayPal one week later. To avoid any water damage during transit, I put the books in a trash bag before boxing it. Double tapped all the box seams. Of course they sell your books for more than it’s quoted. But you don’t have to deal with holding the inventory, shipping individual books, and most sites will charge a fee for selling anyways. I used bookscouter app which was very easy to scan all my books to get the best quote. Highly recommend!
Feb 2019 I have done one order with sellbackyourbook and got paid withing 3 weeks.
Feb 2019 Hopefully SellBackYourBook reads this: College kids write in their books, this is not DAMAGE, this is called NOTES.
Feb 2019 Will never do business with this company again! Horrible customer service!! Enough said!
Jan 2019 i've sent in 7 orders (total of 17 books) and received the promised amount in full every time with sellbackyourbook.com This whole buyback system would work much better if buyers and sellers are both honest in the condition of the books, and the prices paid out.yes there are shady folks on both sides, and not every transaction is going to be smooth (speaking from personal experience). My personal experience with sellbackyourbook.com has been headache free. i appreciate that.
Nov 2018 Very great company fast check in and very fast payment definitely would recommend using them. Super awesome and amazing company. Paid on time and and for the exact amount.
Aug 2018 Why is sellbackyourbook.com site not working ? I want to check my order status and pay status. I am unable to check in.
Aug 2018 What a joke, 12 cents for a hardcover perfect condition Anthony Doerr book. All The Light We Cannot See $27.00 new, 12 cents for them to buy back.

Jul 2018 I sent a bunch of books and they said the most expensive one was not in good enough condition and they would recycle it. I got it back and had my friend send it back to them and guess what-she got 85.00. scam.
Jun 2018 I have utilized this company for several years. I recommend when selling your books to use paypal for payment. When shipping your items, it will take awhile for them to arrive, so paypal would better option.
Jun 2018 Sent in 4 books, total of about $21 which was super low but they were the only vendor to accept these books so I figured why not make some pocket change.
Out of the 4 books they claimed one had water damage (honestly I don't remember but it was a $2 book which they dropped to $0 so whatever), but I got the rest so overall can't complain. Good service, good customer experience.
Jun 2018 I have done business with sellbackyourBook twice now. The first time was a seamless experience. I was paid quickly with no trouble. The second time, there was a mix-up with ISBN where they were going to send my books back to me. This was a mistake on their part, so I pointed it out to them and they fixed it and I was paid within a week. So overall a good experience!
Jun 2018 This is a good, steady and reliable company to do business with. They are fair in evaluating book conditions and buy books other companies won't even consider. I wholeheartedly recommend them!
Jun 2018 The prices they are offering for my books now are going lower and lower and lower. Very concerned and may have to start selling other ways...
Jun 2018 I've sold boxes and boxes of books to this company and am completely happy with their service. Thank you.
May 2018 This was the first time I sold books to SellBackYourBook.com. I appreciated that they accepted many books that other companies did not accept. Their communication/response time after receiving the shipment was a bit longer than some other companies, but users can check the "Status" of their orders under "Order History." This was how I found out that I needed to contact them regarding one book. Once I contacted them, their processing and payment was quick.
Apr 2018 Over the past few months, I have sold a number of books to Sellback. The process is quick and easy. They pay as agreed and have, thus far, not rejected a single book. The only negative - their customer service is rather slow in responding to questions.
Mar 2018 Sellback took one of my son's books back at a good price when it was returned from another company due to water corner damage? It was a loose leaf packet. Very pleased.
Mar 2018 I've sold many books to SellBackYourBook, and they have always been paid quickly (a day or two after the books arrive at their warehouse). Their troubleshooting team is very helpful, and SellBackYourBook usually pays the most for the books I am selling.
Mar 2018 I have sold to them 7 times and had no problems at all. They accept all my books. Slow shipping is not their fault and since the truck drivers that transport the packages don't crap or eat when they need to and deal with dangerous conditions to get you package to it's destination, I don't complain. Truckers make enough sacrifices and some of them sacrifice their lives. Very happy with this vendor.
Feb 2018 This is my first time to use this vendor. I do not plan to use them again. I should have paid attention to the ratings beforehand. It seems they have a habit of rejecting at least one of your books for various reasons, and that was my experience. It also happened to be the highest priced book of the lot. Their turn-around time is also slower than what I have experienced with other vendors.
Jan 2018 I sent books out that were all in good condition. Vendor claimed one book wasn’t the correct ISBN, which they did not check in correctly, and other books had water damage and a broken binding, either of which were damaged when they left my premises. I will not deal with this vendor again.
Jan 2018 I used to like this company and sold them frequently. Now it's getting more and more difficult, since I use ONLY Bookscouter when I buy books, I buy books, that SellBackYourBook won't buy from me, because the ONE BOOK PER CUSTOMER policy... strictly and forever. Just yesterday I got stuck with 2 books, because of this ridiculous rule. I'm not going to stop using Bookscouter, I'm going to stop using SellBackYourBook :)
Dec 2017 Good vendor. But I have one criticism. I am a bookseller and sell 1000s of books through Bookscouter each month. Once you sell a book to Sellbackyourbooks you can never sell the same title gain. Over the last year I have had 100s of books I had to sell to another company for a cheaper price due to this policy. I have contacted them several times about this--all to no avail. Lousey policy.
Oct 2017 Horrible! It took 22 days for my box of 6 books to get from Nevada to Illinois. Then, one they received it they sent me an email saying there were only 2 books in the box. So I told them I wanted to see a picture of the box they arrived in and I sent them a picture of the shipping receipt which showed a weight of over 13 lbs. I doubt 2 books weighed 13 lbs! The next day? Miracle - all the books were accounted for! Something questionable going on. Never again! I will donate my books back to the college!
Sep 2017 Was quoted certain prices, then the company came back and said they received the wrong book even though the online quote I received was for the ISBN # directly off the book. Then in another transaction they sent a check amount that was also lower than what was quoted but did not notify me of the change..... Do not sell to them. The site is a scam.
