The "You Get" price is the amount you receive after BookHolders' 15% and $0.50 commission. The advantage listing is based on the suggested selling price, but it may be more or less if you, the seller change the selling price.
Bookholders acts as service (like a consignment shop), and we take the money that normally goes to the bookstore and give it back to you.
Initially when you drop a book off we'll sell it at the suggested selling price. Once you bring in the book(s), we do a lot of research and determine each book's best selling price, which is a price that will garner you the most money and that will be most likely be sold in a reasonable time frame. You; the seller, also have the ability to modify that price and sell your book at a higher price or a lower price. The "You Get" price is with our 15% and $0.50 commission subtracted from the suggested selling price. The "You Get" price is displayed at the counter during textbook drop off and also on our value page.
Very little! All you have to do is give us the book and we'll do the rest.

You have a few options if your books do not sell. The first thing you should do, is to see if your selling price is too high. Then if you'd like, you can reduce the selling price in an effort to get your book sold (or sold quicker). And as a rule of thumb, buyers usually buy books with the best condition and lowest price. Secondly, if the book hasn't sold for a while, it might be an older edition or an unused book, which in that case you may request the book back in the seller services section. You can also choose to donate your book to charity, as a way to help out your community.
Many students will buy older editions for classes if the price is right, so you may want to list your book at a savings price. BookHolders also sells all over the United States and Internationally including the U.K., Japan, Italy, and many other countries.
BookHolders receives a 15% and $0.50 commission on the selling price of your book. There is no fee for dropping or picking up your books. The Advantage "You Get" price is with our 15% and $0.50 commission subtracted from the suggested selling price.
Yup! At any time you can cash in the book or request it back.
