How can I tell if my textbook is a counterfeit? And why are counterfeit books harmful?

At BookDrop we work actively against counterfeit books! Counterfeit books harm worldwide education by stealing money from those who produce educational material, and by increasing the cost of both digital and print books. Counterfeit books are very harmful to students, publishers, and new & used booksellers. If you are aware of anybody on your campus producing or selling counterfeit books, please let us know so that we can advise the proper authorities.

We want to pay you as much as we can! The worth of your books depends on various factors, including:

Edition: Publishers come out with new textbook editions every 1-4 years for most textbooks. We can pay the most money for the most recent edition of a book! 

Condition: We are able to pay more for books in better condition (without writing, highlighting, water damage, cover damage, etc).

Counterfeits & Teacher’s Editions:  We will NOT buy back any books that are counterfeit or teacher’s editions. We work actively against counterfeit books because they are illegal and harm education worldwide.
