Yay! I just sold my English textbook on eBay’s half not too long ago. We had a good stint together, but it was time to say goodbye. I sold it for the same price I bought it at: around $35. Half took $5.10 in commission, but I really can’t complain. When I sold an item for a similar price on Amazon, I lost over $7 to commission. And with Amazon there’s always the worry that someone won’t like the product. (They can decide this up to years later.) Then Amazon takes the money back out of your bank account without even informing you. I like to buy from them, but will probably never sell there again.
They pay twice a month by depositing your money directly into your bank account. The first pay period is for sales made between the first and the fifteenth of the month, and the second is between the sixteenth and the last day of the month. Money is in your account about seven days after the pay period ends.
When you ship your book, don’t forget to send it Media Mail at the post office! It will save you a TON of money!
To my dear English book: I hope you serve your next owner as well as you served me! Thanks for not going down in value!
