Frequently Asked Questions

You can sell your books online with the book-buying specialists, WeBuyBooks. All you need to do is visit our website and get an instant cash valuation. Print off your postage label and send your books free at a drop-off point or with a courier. Once we’ve received your books, we’ll pay you the following day. And you can do it all online!

The easiest way to find the value of old books is by entering your ISBN into your selling basket on our website or downloading our app and scanning the barcodes to get an instant cash valuation. Some books don’t have barcodes or ISBNs, so you can use the [WeBuyBooks catalogue]( to get a valuation, or get in touch, and we’ll give you a personal valuation.

It depends on how much money you’re talking about! Some older, rarer editions of books are worth thousands or millions, while newer books with plenty of copies in circulation might get you a few pounds. Book buying and selling are all about supply and demand, so the less of something, the more people will pay for it, and vice versa.

The criteria aren’t set in stone, but certain things make a book more likely to be rare. The first is the edition of the book; first editions are usually rarer than newer editions, especially when it comes to older books. There are several other criteria, such as the book being signed, previously owned by a famous person or having a distinct look. However, these factors don’t always mean the books are worth anything.

At WeBuyBooks, we pride ourselves on having the highest payouts on the web. We’re a specialist book buyer, but we also accept CDs, games and DVDs. You can get an instant cash price for your books by using our online cash price generator or downloading our app and scanning the barcodes on your books.

Encyclopaedias usually aren't worth much. They’re quite heavy to pack and expensive to ship, there isn’t much demand for them, and as new information constantly appears, they become outdated. It’s always worth a try; you may have a rare or in-demand version. The best way to find out is by using the We Buy Books website or app to get an instant valuation.
