How much are my books worth?

We hope you get the most money possible selling your books and we have a price-match guarantee for competitors! No matter what books you have, please send us a picture of them, and we are more than happy to let you know if we can buy them!

The value of a book depends on multiple factors, including: edition (publishers release a new edition of each book every 2-4 years), condition, online price, and if the books includes the access code. We also buy many loose-leaf books!

There are some books we cannot buy due to resale limitations (counterfeit books, teacher’s editions, novels, etc.). But any books you’d like to donate that we are unable to sell will be given to Books for Africa and other charities.

How/when will I receive my payment?

After you receive a quote for your books from one of our reps, please drop them off in the BookDrop Bin located nearest to you. Then, we will pay you directly to your phone through your choice of Venmo, PayPal, or Direct Bank Transfer. We will send your payment within 1-2 days after drop-off!

Where/when do I drop-off my books?

After you receive a quote for your books from one of our reps, drop them off in any of our BookDrop Bins near you. All of our bins are open for drop-offs 24/7!

If there are no locations near you, we can send you a pre-paid mailing label so you can ship them to our warehouse!

How long will it take to receive a quote for my books?

We will usually give you a quote for your books within 24-hours! (We don’t normally give any quotes on Saturdays and Sundays). If you send a picture of your books after 5pm, expect to have them appraised the next day 🙂

Are there any books that BookDrop can't buy?

We are NOT able to buy back counterfeit books or teacher’s edition books. We are also unable to buy back most novels. But feel free to send us pictures of all of your books, and we will let you know which of your books we can buy and which ones we cannot buy.

Books that we cannot sell will be recycled or donated to Books for Africa and other institutions.
