Where to Sell Vintage Books Online

While you can sell you books on websites like eBay or Amazon, you’ll have to post your items, wait for a sale and post your items. With We Buy Books it’s a lot simpler, you get a valuation from us, send us your books and then get a pay out once we’ve checked them. It’s so easy! Here’s how to do it:

Discover How Much You Can Get for Your Books Online

You can use the We Buy Books website on either mobile, desktop or tablet to generate a price for your order. If you haven’t got an account, you’ll have to use the Selling Basket to enter your ISBNs and get a price. If you want to enter bulk items, you can create an account and use the bulk selling basket.

How Does the Bulk Selling Basket Work?

How Does the Bulk Selling Basket Work?
  1. Go to your bulk selling basket
  2. Enter one ISBN per line (up to 25 per entry)
  3. Submit your items and add them to your selling basket (You can still review your items in the selling basket if you wish to reject an offer.)
  4. Either proceed to complete your order or go back to your bulk selling basket to add more items

Discover How Much You Can Get On the We Buy Books App

If you want to scan your items quicker, you can use the We Buy Books app which is available on IOS and Android. The main benefit of the app is the barcode scanner, so instead of entering your ISBNs, you can save time by scanning them all and getting an instant price. All you need to do is accept your offer and send us your items. You’ll still have the option to enter your ISBNs if you want to.

How Does the App Work?

Firstly, you’ll need to download the app and install the software on your phone (Android or IoS). Once you’ve downloaded the app:
