Sell Back Your Textbooks

Make this summer one to remember by selling your textbooks for cash. Bookbyte pays cash for all textbooks, so you can spend that extra pocket money on souvenirs, movie tickets and cold drinks. Compare that to getting credit for your textbooks, and it’s an obvious choice. Sell textbooks online to Bookbyte and you’ll be able to afford more fun this summer.

About Bookbyte

Bookbyte has helped students rent and buy textbooks affordably since 1999. We’re based out of Salem, Oregon and we are passionate about helping students and the members of our community reach their full potential through education. That’s why we went into the used textbook business way back in the 20th century: because we believe everyone should have affordable access to the tools they need to learn.

How Does Renting Work?

Renting from Bookbyte is a simple process. Search the ISBN or title of the textbook you need, choose the “rent” option, select a duration (30, 60, 90 or 150 days) and then “check out” and we’ll send you the textbook. When your rental period is up, you can ship it back to us free of charge or extend your rental if you need to. You will receive email reminders as your return date approaches, and you can use the My Account page to check your due date, extend your rental duration, or return your rental. Orders over $49 get free shipping, and there’s a 7 day grace period if you’re running a little bit late.

How Does Buying Work

Buying textbooks from Bookbyte is easy. Enter the ISBN, title or author of the textbook you need in the search bar, add that book to your cart, and click “Check Out.” Shipping is free on orders over $49, and expedited shipping is only $2 extra.

How Does Selling Work

Selling textbooks to Bookbyte is as simple as buying. Enter the ISBN of the book you want to sell in the search bar. Run the search and you’ll see a button that says: “Have this book? We’ll pay XX.XX for it.” (If you don’t see that button, we aren’t buying copies of that textbook).
If you're happy with the price, click “Sell Books” and complete the process. We’ll give you a shipping label to print out (we pay for shipping so you don’t have to) and you send us the textbook. In 4-14 days we receive it, and you get paid via check or PayPal, your choice.
