Amazon.com provides a textbook trade-in program. This means that Amazon only pays via Amazon gift cards.

However, seeing that you can buy most anything on Amazon, this isn't a bad thing; just something you need to be aware of.

Apr 2019 A good app I have used it before

Mar 2019 Amazon's has always been good to me.
Feb 2019 it is very use
Jan 2019 Amazing and good
Dec 2018 I have sent about five books to Amazon. One was returned with no shipping charge for a small amount of water damage and the rest were accepted and immediately credited to my account. Amazon usually pays less for book buybacks than other websites, but they are quick and very reliable!
Nov 2018 Easy and quick! Best buyback experience!
Oct 2018 Great experience. Easy transaction and ship, paid into my account same day they received the book. Thanks Amazon!
Oct 2018 No problems. Quick processing. Like others have said, it would be nice if payment didn't have to be in the form of an Amazon gift card. If there had been another buyer for the book I sold I would have gone with them.
Jun 2018 Easy transaction, got the money straight into my Amazon account, too bad it's store credit but overall everything was excellent

Apr 2018 This was my first time trading in to Amazon. The process was easy and service was speedy. They received my books one day and credited my account the next day. Highly recommended.
Apr 2018 I sold 3 books fr a total of $112 in Amazon credit, received them promptly in my account and did not have any issue when they received it. They processed it super fast, within 3 days for mine, i shipped it out next day after making the buyback order transaction. I recommend Amazon for #1 choice if you do not mind having Amazon credit vs. actual cash.
Mar 2018 First time selling a book back online with Amazon & have now done it 3 times in the past 3 weeks. Super simple, received a Amazon gift card balance on my Amazon account within 5 days of shipment, and had no issues.
Dec 2017 I traded in a two set volume brand new textbook. It was rejected and the message said "missing volume". I called Amazon customer service, I was told that the brand new books are in "worse" condition hence reason for rejection. None of this adds up. Amazon.com trade in offers terrible service and in my opinion is a scam. I am awaiting return of the textbooks. Don't use this service.
Nov 2017 This is my first experience with selling a book back online, and it was quick an easy.
Nov 2017 I've only sold one book with Amazon but the experience was positive. Of 5 book vendors I've used, Amazon was the fastest at receiving and paying me. CKY books is a close second. They don't buy too many books, though. And the price they offer is not the best
Oct 2017 Shipped my book on 9/25/17 and got the full quoted price of $113 on 10/3/2017. The book I sent wasn't in pristine condition but it was pretty good with only 2 decent sized discoloration spots from where 2 sticker where at. I had no problems what so ever and it was a very smooth transaction
Aug 2017 I've been trading in to Amazon for 4 months now. Out of 120 books, one was rejected. It had binding damage that I was aware of beforehand. They returned it, free of charge. I don't get the bad reviews. If you are an Amazon junkie, this is your dream buyer!
Aug 2017 I very carefully read the buy back instructions and what books they would accept. I shipped them a brand new book that was opened one time. I took pictures of the book before I packaged it in bubble wrap so there would be no discrepancies. They received the book and said pages were damaged. This only could have happened when they opened the box and took the book out. Hopefully they will return the same book to me so that I can resell to a student.
