Jun 2017 Fast and easy. No hassle
Jun 2017 Please don't read the bad reviews, they are probably from people sending out bad books, knowing it and still expecting to get paid and blame the company. BooksRun is a Good company. 4 stars only because they took almost 2 weeks to pay, while other companies paid the same day. I send out VERY expensive books, and they paid me what they promised. If you have good quality books then don't be afraid to send them. Follow the instructions on how to properly package the box, take a short video of the quality of your books, just in case, DONT use USPS, only FedEx and UPS. Don't send crappy books and think you will get away with it. Booksrun paid a lot of money for my books, I'm very happy. Thank you. I recommend them for sure, anytime!!
Jun 2017 Do not sell your books to this company! They took two of my books worth the most money and initially said I did not enclosed the books. I contacted them and then they said i had sent the wrong books. After a few angry emails they changed their story again saying the books themselves had been printed with the wrong ISBN number on them and would not be accepted. This company is a scam!!
BooksRun Response: Dear Customer, thank you for the feedback. We are very sorry to hear that you've had such a negative experience. We've looked deeply into the matter, and it appears that the situation with the order has been misunderstood. All eight books were sent by you and received by us, however, two of them had the ISBNs on their back covers that were different from the ones initially quoted (one book also indeed has a mistake with two different ISBNs printed: a 13-digit one and a 12-digit one, neither of which correspond to the one initially quoted in the order). We have also provided images of the books alongside the explanation. Our Customer Support Team has also reached out promptly via email to provide the solution and make up for any inconvenience caused.
Apr 2017 Great customer service on my selling order to BooksRun. Fast turnaround on receiving my check. Thank you!!!
Mar 2017 Excellent buyback values. Pretty picky on what they'll take. You have to pay to get your books back if you don't like the adjusted or zero buyback value for a rejected book, but the extra buyback is great as long as you send them really high quality books.
Mar 2017 BooksRun did a great job providing the buyback quote and handling the payment for the buyback.
Mar 2017 Smooth transaction. Fast payment. Great book buyer/seller. Thanks!
Feb 2017 Quick and easy process to get the books gone! However, it took a full week for my order to be processed, and now I'm being told me check will take up to 20 days to arrive!
Feb 2017 One of my best experiences with any book buyer ever. Very professional communication. Extremely quick turn around and I requested a check. Highly recommend, will use again.

Feb 2017 Very smooth transaction. Price quote was very high. My package was received and processed with no problems. My check arrived within a couple of days of their email notification that it had been sent. The overall process took a bit longer, maybe an extra week or ten days, than some of the other book buyback companies I have used. Still, the overall transaction went well. I would definitely use BooksRun in the future.
Feb 2017 Prompt with their shipping and gave me my payment quickly and without any problems.

Jan 2017 Such a quick and easy process! I would 100% recommend this to anybody who has unneeded textbooks that they are willing to part with. The steps were very easy to understand and I received payment in a very timely manner!
Dec 2016 The sell back prices on Books Run were the best of all the other online book stores. Sending the books to them was easy and the turn around time to receive the money was quick. I will definitely do business with Books Run again!
Dec 2016 Payment arrived within a week of initial shipping; two books were damaged and they notified me immediately of the change in payment value so I knew what to expect.

Will sell more books back in the future!
Dec 2016 BooksRun was wonderful! This site gave me the most money back for my old textbook out of any other site I looked at. The communication was great and the directions were easy to follow. Thank you!
Dec 2016 Good turnaround time. When the highest bidder they're great.
Dec 2016 I was very happy with the service of Booksrun. They were pleasant and efficient. Will definitely work with them again for buying and selling my textbooks!
Dec 2016 Turn around so fast! Couldn't be more pleased with my experience. True user here.
Dec 2016 This is the second time I have sold books to Booksrun. Both times have been easy and seamless. Always quickly got what I was quoted.
Dec 2016 My transaction was completed in a short amount of time. I was paid via paypal the day after my books arrived. I will do business with booksrun again
Dec 2016 My transaction was quick and easy. They offered more money back than other sites and it went straight into my PayPal. Will do business with BooksRun again.
Dec 2016 Highly recommend this company. Easy to use and super fast payments.
Nov 2016 I've sold my books to them on two occasions now (with a few books sold each occasion). They paid exactly what they said they would, and they are relatively quick in dispersing payment.

Also, I find their website easy to use; it doesn't take me more than a few minutes to create an order and print out the necessary pre-paid shipping label. In short, it's streamlined, which is great.
Nov 2016 Excellent company! Paid as quickly as any company I have ever dealt with
Nov 2016 Easy process, excellent service, timely payments!
Nov 2016 Sent a book October 25 and got paid November 3. Hard to beat that 9 day turnaround, especially sending a book from Arizona to New York. They even sent me an email with a link to the order they paid me for which makes keeping track of the many buybacks I submit that much easier. Wish that were standard practice!
Oct 2016 They did exactly like they said they would. It was quick and easy and within two days of receiving my book my paypal was issued. Thank you! Not all of these companies do what they promise! Wish I would have gone with the entirely!
Oct 2016 Quick & Fast Payment Settlement. Would definitely work with them again.
Sep 2016 Booksrun claimed that my books were counterfeit. They asked me to pay for $15.95 to get the books returned via Media Mail, but they did not pay the insurance.. Package were never delivered and they did not take any responsibility.
I bought the books on ebay and just need support to file the claim.
No proof to support my Paypal's case. No help with lost package. No refund for shipping cost although they did not complete the service.
Sep 2016 Super fast transaction!
Sep 2016 great! got my money within 10 days of shipment, no problems at all!
Sep 2016 I was a little scared to use this new company, but so glad I did. They paid me exactly as quoted, and communication was great. I would have rated them 5 stars, but even though their site says shipping via fedex, their shipping label was from Post Office. I prefer using companies that use FedEx or UPS.
Jul 2016 They are good in there processing.
Jun 2016 Excellent experience in selling them the books. They were quickest in making the payments after receiving the books. Would definitely get back to them.
Jun 2016 Nice!....Fast, efficient, and a good price.
Jun 2016 Was happy with prices and prompt payment.
Jun 2016 awesome company! paid exactly what was quoted in a timely manner. will definitely be selling more books to them in the future.
Jun 2016 Have used multiple time and all went well
Jun 2016 Thank you Booksrun. You have been really good. But why don't you pay for all books sent to you. must time you refuse payment of some books and says you are issuing them out for donations. please always pay for them all or half of them
Jun 2016 I really like these guys. Good prices and quick payments. No hassles compared to many other buyers.

May 2016 Quick payment, easy to use

Mar 2016 A+ Company. Fastest paying vendor I've dealt with. Had an issue with an order and they worked with me very well.
Mar 2016 Usually skeptical about a brand new vendor, but my experience with books run has been awesome! Easy to navigate site and good email communications is a definite plus.
Mar 2016 Quick to send and to get your cash back
Feb 2016 Great company to deal with. Never any issues and always pay quickly. Quick response to any questions I have.

Feb 2016 Haven't had any serious issues with them, they pay promptly and check things in quickly. Paying via PayPal is great.

Only issue I've had so far has been them reclassifying some brand new books as "used - very good" because they had an easily removable sticker on the front from the store that sold them.

I would definitely use them again and hope to continue having positive experiences.
Feb 2016 I have had a great experience with BooksRun. They have good customer service and prompt payment.
Jan 2016 Made first transaction with them couple of days ago and just got full amount on my PayPal account.

Well done, Sirs!
Dec 2015 Sent payment as promised. Close to $700 worth of books. Competitive buyback price as well.
Dec 2015 Thought I'd try them out when they offered the highest price for a book. Boy was I surprised!! Very fast turnaround. They rank right up there with those who have been around for a while. Will definitely use them again. G. Cash

I've used booksrun a few times and they are a great book buying company. They get the books very fast via fedex and payout is usually same day if you opt to get payed via paypal. I can't wait to sell more books to them!

Nov 2015 Sent 8 books to BooksRun on 11/12/15. Received notifications regarding my book check-in and payment on 11/18/15. I would use BooksRun again and if they stay fair and prompt. The more buyback companies the better the competition for me. Thank you
