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.
Sep 2017 I sent a perfectly good book to the company and then I got a message from them saying it had liquid damage. Fake! You have been warned.
Sep 2017 have had nothing but trouble with this company. No matter the condition it seems they reject the book in hopes that you won't pay the return shipping so they can score a free book. I have tried working with them a few times this past year and have consistently rejected books that other sites have taken. It makes sense they offer a bit more than the other companies, they don't intend on paying you!

Aug 2017 I find it suspicious that only my expensive books were rated as water damage & not eligible for payment.

I will never sell this company any more books.
Aug 2017 I have sold books at various times to this company and never had a problem. All transactions went smoothly.I choose to get paid by check and I know that takes a little longer.
Aug 2017 I've sent in several buybacks during past 6 months and have found they are easy to communicate with, resolve issues, and most importantly get paid promptly. One of my favorite buyback vendors to work with for sure. A+
Aug 2017 I am very happy with this company. I have made several extra dollars selling to them. They always put my money in PayPal in a timely fashion. So happy to be making the extra money.
Aug 2017 Thanks for your Business!! One of my "Go To" book buying vendors.
Jul 2017 If no stars was an option that is what I would give them. I have dealt with this company for several years they were ok a bit inept but in the last few months there have been changes in service that are not good.
They have recently begun claiming that they have not received books I have sent them and they wash their hands. I am no longer comfortable dealing with this company because I am finding that I cannot be sure I will get paid for books I send.
I would not use them.
Jul 2017 No problems, paid as quoted, processed within a day of receiving, and check received in the mail 2 days later. Only negative is that they were only buying volume 3 of my 3 volume set.
Jun 2017 Thank you so much for your great service! I'll definitely continue to send you my books.
Jun 2017 I send out MANY (7 boxes) books to 7 different companies. And every single company paid me. No problems with ANY company I send the books to. If your books are crappy and you expect to get away with sending bad books and saying it's the companies fault then you might have problems getting paid. But if you send them genuinely good condition books, you will have NO PROBLEMS!! I promise! Sellbackyourbooks is a good company.i recommend. They aren't the fastest in paying, it takes a few days but they are reliable. Use them!

Jun 2017 Full and immediate payment. Thank you.
Jun 2017 I sent my Physics book to sell and it was in good condition! But it was volume 1 and I made sure that the ISBN number was correct and coming up as volume 1 and not the whole book. So after they received it they said that they couldn't find that it was real! All the nerve! It is not fake, it's real! Now they have it that they are not buying that particular book anymore, fortunately they are sending it back to me but they should at least give me something as a volume 1! I also sent a history book to them so hopefully they don't say it's fake or I'll give an ear full.
Jun 2017 I would give 0 stars but that wasn't an option, I sent my books two weeks ago, have called twice no response. No email nothing. I lost about 50.00 in books that I won't see again. DONT USE THEM!
Jun 2017 Just want everyone to know that they now have a new policy, whereby if you have EVER sent them a particular book, they will NEVER accept an identical book. How is one supposed to know if they have EVER sent them a copy of that book before. Strange new policy.
Apr 2017 Thanks for buying my books. Great customer service. Received my check within about a week and a half from day I shipped them. Thanks!!
Mar 2017 They take 3-5 weeks to pay you for your transaction.
Feb 2017 Never Use Them!

They received my book on February 14th; the order status on their website stayed "Delivered and awaiting quality inspection." for 7 days after that (though their FAQs said they process it in 2-3 days); and then I received an email from them saying that "my account is under review" and to verify they need a copy of my government-issued ID and receipts or invoices to prove that the book belongs to me.

Why should I be supposed to send my ID to a private company? And where am I supposed to get a receipt if I purchased the book from another student?

It looks just like they don't want to honor their quote and keep the book for themselves.
Feb 2017 Easy to use and quick payment; however, it seems like they always turn down a book due to "water damage" can be a bit annoying
Feb 2017 Do not use this business, I was suppose to be paid thru paypal on two different dates. I have never been paid, my account confirms payment wac processed , but no payment sent to PayPal. I have contacted sellbackyour book by email and telephone and no one has contacted me. Do not use them!!!!!
Jan 2017 Buyers Beware! I send them 2 brand new text book based on a revised quote from their website. After 2-3 week they send me less than half the money they offered in the quote. I emailed them many times . But didnt get any responds. I wish I should have research about this company before sending my books. Dont do business with them. You will lost your money and valuables both.
Jan 2017 I sell tons of books to these guys. My biggest issue is they consistently claim to not have received all the books in my order. About half the time they claim my orders to be missing between 1 and 4 books. They are not missing. I scan and put immediately in box. They get a lot of "free" books with this claim. I continue to sell to them because they offer on so many books others don't and they do pay quickly. I have not had a problem with smaller orders, but their employees can't seem to handle 50 books or more at a time.
Jan 2017 I accidentally mailed my wallet with my textbooks. I got a call and the lady verified that it was my wallet. She sent me my wallet and my check for the exact quote that I was promised. My first time selling my books at textbook recycling and it was a great experience thanks.
Dec 2016 Takes a while to get paid.
Dec 2016 They offered the most money for the book out of all the other websites
I looked at. I got my check in the mail shortly after I mailed of the book.
Dec 2016 I've been selling books to SellBackYourBook for about a year now. I've had nothing but wonderful service from this company! I get good feedback (e.g. let me know when my books have arrived, etc.) and prompt payment. It definitely is a "go-to" venue for me.
Dec 2016 Very easy transaction - thank you :)
Dec 2016 very easy transaction. would deal with again.
Dec 2016 Thank you for your quick service and professionalism in handling my sales.
Dec 2016 Quick, painless, professional. Nearly perfect. Only wish they had taken more of my books or that they had made it known that they were purchasing a new warehouse in anticipation of being able to buy back more books.
I have given the rest of mine away.
Dec 2016 90% of the time sell sellbackyoubooks had the top 3% in pricing. Instead of printing out ten different labels to ten different companies you should choose sellbackyoubooks for all your unwanted. One box. One label. I've used there service twice and both times it was a speedy process that got me a real check in a really quick fashion.
Dec 2016 Very disappointed! Will never use this company again. I was thorough in mailing 8 books, they claim they only received 6. They also denied 1 book as damaged; however, it was in excellent condition. There were no apologies, no explanation to my questions.
Nov 2016 I Have Used This Site Over 100 Times In The Last Few Years.
They Have Always Paid Me What They Said They Would And Always Very Quickly.
