Do you pay cash or credit?
With buyback being online currently, you can receive a check shipped to your home or you can choose to be paid through PayPal.
What if my book is not going to be used again or the bookstore already has enough copies?
We partner with a national book wholesaler who purchases books for schools all over the country. If your book is not being used on our campus, there is a chance that it may be used elsewhere and have a value.
Are there any books you won't buy back?
There are certain types of books that we do not buy back. These include workbooks, lab manuals, access codes and other certain books that can not be resold. If the book is an old edition or has a new edition pending, it may not have a value. Also, certain books, such as Law books, may require minimal writing in order to have value. Therefore always keep your books in good condition with limited highlighting and notes to get the best offer. Pay attention when you purchase a Used copy as it may not been in a condition worthy of being sold back.
What happens if my book doesn't have a value?
Your book is yours, so it is your decision what to do with it. You can donate it to Belmont's Service Learning Department if you don't want to invest any time in selling the book yourself. Service Learning uses the books to raise funds for children's literacy efforts. Of the books donated, approximately one third to one half have value to portion of the proceeds to Belmont University for our literacy efforts and to the charity of Belmont's choice (in our case, the National Center for Family Literacy) Usually about half of the remaining books have value to a local wholesaler. All of the proceeds received from the local wholesaler go to support Belmont Volunteers for Literacy and the work they do, including Family Literacy Day. Books not wanted by the local wholesaler or Better World Books are donated to Book’em a local literacy organization who partners with Belmont Volunteers for Literacy for Family Literacy Day and Read Me Week in February, as well as other times throughout the year.
