Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Sep 2014 Great company. The only drawback is you have to call them to get approval for more than one copy. They are hard to reach but keep trying. They are honest, fair and a very reputable firm. One of the best!
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Aug 2014 I did not have any problems. At first I was worried because of all the negative reviews there are. The process was easy, and I was paid within a week and a half. I chose the PayPal option, which may have made the process quicker. Also My book was in good condition (not very good but good) and it still was accepted easily.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Aug 2014 Have been using this company for two years. I was surprised to see the negative feedback. Over these couple years, I've sent them 80 orders. Of those, five were rejected for various reasons. Always pays promptly. Will continue to use regularly.
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Aug 2014 Very pleased with this company. They were easy to work with. I received a quote and a shipping label. After shipping the book, I received a notice that they had receive the book and I would be receiving a check within 7 to 14 days. I received the check within 4 days. I will use them again.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Aug 2014 I have used this company several times over the last year and have never had any problems, one check got lost in the mail and they replaced it with no problem. I blame USPS for that. Customer service through email is wonderful. I always recommend this company to family and friends.
Rating: 3 starsRating: 3 starsRating: 3 starsRating: 3 starsRating: 3 stars Aug 2014 I have not had problems selling them books back in the past and the check came promptly. However, this last time I sent in books, they sent me an email claiming all books were water damaged and they could not sell them. After sending back an email stating that the weather may have caused it since it had been raining and they were in pristine condition when they left my house (and they were packaged well and in bubble wrap) they recanted their statement and said they were fine and they could sell them and they would issue me the money. It was weird.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Aug 2014 Do not use this company. They claim to lose books even when the books have been signed for by the warehouse. It took well over a month to get paid. The customer service department gives you the run around and keeps giving you a different dates that you will receive payment. Horrible experience.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Jul 2014 Use these folks at your own peril. I had a $34 buyback of which $21 was for a hardcover book of Henri Matisse's art. It was certainly not in perfect shape as is the case with most USED books, but it was certainly passable. SellBack disqualified the book and said they were going to 're-cycle' the book. Yeah, right!
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Jul 2014 Overall a good experience. I had to make sure to track all large orders and that all books were paid. Be sure to check ISBN numbers and cross check packing slips. They do pay on a timely basis and this has been one to the better places to use to sell back books.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Jul 2014 Pleasant to deal with. Very fast payment.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Jun 2014 This company sent me one email saying they received my book. I waited over two weeks with no additional email communication before I emailed their help email. It took almost a week to get a response and I got a one line "Your book was in too rough a shape" email. The book was like new, with a CD attached (never even opened). I would not use this company again.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Jun 2014 Excellent customer service. The only company I have used that emailed me when my book was received and to let me know when I was paid. Very efficient. Will use again!
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars May 2014 Notable points:
- Has a low minimum (only $5 needed) for selling back your books to them.
- One of the faster vendors in notifying me when they received my book shipment, the processing, and then the fastest at sending my payment to PayPal.
- I received the full price of my original book quote.
- No hassle. Very easy transaction.

Summary:
Good seller, fast communication, recommended.

My Details:
I sent two books to them, using their free USPS shipping label. This place was the quickest in receiving and processing my books and payment, of the three I used this semester. I was nervous using this vendor due to some bad reviews, so I only sent two books, totally a little over $6. I got my full quoted price, with no hassle. The process couldn't have been easier with this vendor. Recommended!
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars May 2014 Be careful about sending this company several books at once. I sent in seven textbooks and then they emailed me that one of my items was missing and that they had not received it. It was the book worth the most and it could possibly be a scam they try to run. After double checking that I no longer had the book, I sent them an email back stating that it was enclosed and they should find it. Without any apology or email back, I received the full amount via paypal, which included the amount for supposedly "missing" textbook. I strongly suggest you take a quick photo on the contents of the box if you are sending multiple items just so you without a doubt know every item in the box.
Rating: 3 starsRating: 3 starsRating: 3 starsRating: 3 starsRating: 3 stars Apr 2014 Company has a bad habit of not checking in/updating orders. Had to notify them that a buyback marked as unreceived by them had in fact been delivered a week earlier.
Tried leaving same feedback over a month ago, but it was never put up.
They had this issue going back 2 years with my orders. I deal with such high volume/turnover that I didn't discover it until perusing my account on their site. Over 20 buybacks were in limbo.
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Mar 2014 I received the amount I was quoted within 24 hours of them receiving shipment. I did not receive any notifications that my order was processing or received, but otherwise a great transaction. I just kept checking my shipping confirmation and PayPal account for updates!
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Mar 2014 Second time I sold books to them. Some books they pay the highest, other books not so much. All in all they are good. The books are processed within 24 hours. Customer service is quick to respond to emails.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Feb 2014 This company had problems with temporary help that grossly mis-graded books. I sent them a book that was brand new but had sat on my shelves for 10 years.....they rejected it for poor condition? It had shelf wear on the back cover but was otherwise new. I took pictures and emailed them....to their credit, they apologized and paid me for the book and several others that had similar issues. We all make mistakes, to their credit, they fixed what they caused.... I give them bonus points because they were willing to admit they were wrong.....that's unusually ethical in today's book world.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Feb 2014 SellBackYourBook.com was very easy to use. They processed the books very quickly and sent me a check right away. I would use them again.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Feb 2014 Paid as agreed and promptly once books were delivered. They were quick to respond to my email when I wanted to change they payment method from check to Paypal.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Feb 2014 I have had several transactions with Sellback Your Books and
no complaints. One of my "Go To" Vendors. Thanks for your business!!
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Jan 2014 Completed my first transaction with SELLBACKYOURBOOK.com. One of the books was damaged according to them. However, customer service was quick to email me with issue and check was sent out the next day upon arrival at SBYB.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Jan 2014 Has been one of my top buyers for close to 4 years. Always pleased with the rapid payment, and good communication when there is an issue with a book.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Jan 2014 i just recently used them and i had 0 problems. i was actually exceptionally pleased with their service. they gave me and an estimate of 120 for 4 books and paid exactly that. the book were in perfect condition and they even bought books that were like 2 semesters old, which other companies wanted to give me basically nothing for or would not buy. they received my books on the 7th of january and i just got my check. absolutely no problems.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Dec 2013 Very HAPPY with SELLBACKYOURBOOK.com. They offer high prices on a large variety of books. But the essential success of any company is their customer service and SBYB has Debbie who is always available to offer effective customer service when needed. Good Job!
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Oct 2013 This company is awesome, if people would read the FAQ they wouldn't be having all sorts of problems. Also get insurance on larger orders, USPS has been awful lately. The customer service here is great they will help you work out any problems. Have used them in the past and will use them again and will recommend to my many friends.
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Oct 2013 Good service thus far on multiple orders
Rating: 2 starsRating: 2 starsRating: 2 starsRating: 2 starsRating: 2 stars Sep 2013 I send hundreds of books to several buyback companies. I have always been happy with sell back your book until recently. Because of the volume I deal with I am very well aware of the importance of the condition and often ask myself "would I buy that used book in that condition" If there is any doubt it does not get sent in to any company. During the past 2-3 months just about every order has an issue. I am tired of them rejecting books that I know are in good condition. Tired of having to contact customer service. I will be eliminating sell back from my go to vendors.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Sep 2013 I have used SellBackYourBook more times than I can count and have never, ever had a problem. They process the books and issue payment quickly.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Sep 2013 Loved this company. I sent about 7 textbooks I used about 4 years ago in college. They accepted all of my books, stood by their quote price, and kept me in the loop about the status of my order. Strongly recommend using them.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Sep 2013 thank you for keeping your word. We received the check within a couple weeks. Will do business again with them.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Aug 2013 This is the best company ever! They are in time with their payments & have great customer service! They are fantastic! I will for sure sell them my books again!
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Aug 2013 I LOVE this company. They always buy my books for the quoted price! They are one of my top buyers. I can always trust them and they always pay. Read the rules, each buyer has quirks but I have never had any problem with them as long as I follow the buyback criteria.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Aug 2013 Sent book in perfect condition - received email stating the book didn't meet their condition requirements...but not sure which requirement because I doubled checked the requirements before I sent it in based on these other reviews.

I paid the 3.99 to have my book returned. I only sent the one book as a test run....no way I will use this company again. They are not legitimate...don't waste your time!!
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Jul 2013 i think this something everyone should know about.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Jul 2013 Sold to them on more than one occasion and there was an "issue" with order each times...which should not have happened. Also it appeared they paid less for a book (which was new, read once) than originally quoted. I would not utilize them again. When the did pay, the did pay within a two-weeks.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars May 2013 I would not recommend SellBackYourBook.com. I sent them an inventory listing from my bookstore which closed and heard from them once, saying they would forward the list to their "IT Guy" who would review it and they would get back to me. It's been two months and I have heard nothing back!
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Apr 2013 Sent book on 4/11, received quoted payment on 4/22 with no problems.
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Apr 2013 The process was very easy and my check for payment was received in less than a month.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Mar 2013 Website accepted 3 of my books. Sent them in. On arrival, they claim the most valuable of the three is unusable, only paying for the lesser 2. Kinda funny considering that it was in perfect shape, cover to cover when I sent it out (IE purchased new, and never ended up using it for the class, gotta love profs who dont use all the books they assign)
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Feb 2013 I sent them one book and two days after they emailed me to let me know my book had arrived, they emailed me again to tell me that my book was in rough condition. This pissed me off because the book was in perfect condition when i shipped it. After an email asking them to tell me what was wrong with my book, they replied telling my that after reassessing my book they would accept it and pay me the full amount.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Feb 2013 This company is great with wonderful customer service, they sent out emails with any issues to my order and re-evaluated the items in "rough condition", I also liked the option to get my books back for $4.00 some other places do not offer that option. They even paid me more money on 1 item that I had the wrong ISBN number on. Will be using the company again and will recommend to friends.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Feb 2013 They said my book was in "rough condition" and wanted me to pay $4 for them to send it back to me. I was only going to get like $5! Not worth it. Loss of a book so loss of money. Rip offs.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Feb 2013 This was the first time using this service. I did not have any problem. They processed the books quickly and I received check in a timely manner.

Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Feb 2013 I sent in one book and was told it was in "rough condition" and I have to pay to have it returned. Won't be recommending or using this service ever again.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Feb 2013 I sent one book that was in very good condition and I received a email stating that they could not accept it because it was in rough condition. I was wary from reading previous posts of their record that's why I only sent them one item. I would recommend using another vendor.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Feb 2013 Received payment for 2 sell back orders and have another in progress. Everything worked as stated, all monies received, free shipping. Will and have used again!

Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Jan 2013 These guys are one of the best. Books were shipped on Monday and i got paid Friday. Thanks!!
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Dec 2012 This site is horrible I sent them in books on Oct 18, 2012 and did not receive my money until Dec. 14, 2012 and i had a payment option of Paypal so it is not like they had to send a check. I got paid but in a very unprofessional time period. If you like to wait 2 months to get paid then go with them.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Dec 2012 I sent in more then one book, they said one was not in good condition, which I know it was, for it was new. Also they never mentioned or paid me for my other ones. I will never use them again.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Dec 2012 Used this vendor for the first time and I was pleased with the result. I sent in 5 books for an elderly neighbor. They received and processed the trade in quickly and paypal payment was prompt. I would use this company again if the occasion arises.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Nov 2012 They claimed that they didn't get my book after 1 week after USPS delivered it. And I sent my book to Amazon, bookbyte and sellbackyourbook at the same time, I got all my money beside sellbackyourbook. They are just awful.
Rating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 starsRating: 4 stars Nov 2012 Only book has "water damage." Luckily it was one of the cheaper books so I feel they were honest. Got what I was quoted in a timely manner. Thanks.
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Oct 2012 Sent 3 books, all virtually new, and only the cheapest one was accepted. Paid to have the other hardbacks returned and another vendor accepted them without problem. Won't be using this vendor again.
Rating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 starsRating: 5 stars Sep 2012 I had no problem with this company at all. I got what I was promised for my books. Will do business with them again!
Rating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 starsRating: 1 stars Sep 2012 Luckily I was paid the full amount, but the turnaround to get my money left me feeling like I was about to be scammed. It took over a month from when my books were shipped to receive the money via Paypal. They told me the wait was due to USPS being slow in shipping them the book, however I have never had USPS take 15 days to ship something even when it was sent across the country. They also offered no other means of shipping so USPS was what I had to use. Once they verified they received the book, it took an additional 2 weeks to be paid. I have used many other buyback companies, and was paid within a week. It took a month with this company.
