Does the BookSwap service work for students directly?
The service deals with school supply stock, not individual students.
A typical order begins when a Department Head or teacher calls to
make a search for needed texts or to obtain a quote for texts they would
like to sell. BookSwap then
searches stock and demand and attempts to find a buyer or to provide the
How much "life" is left in a used textbook?
The life of a used textbook varies, but it can be prolonged.
When we receive used books they are given a thorough inspection.
When needed, the books are rebound and cleaned up.
This process lengthens the life of the book.
What if the books we have are older?
No problem. Schools are
interested in older titles which they can use as study sets or to
supplement already-existing supplies which gradually deplete or become
damaged. Even if your books are no longer on your school's curriculam
they could still be used elsewhere.
What if we have a lot of books in small numbers, but no class sets?
Often, schools are in need of singles or double copies. Your books join an
already-existing stock and will be in demand.
What payment methods are acceptable?
Board cheque, school cheque, petty cash, and credit card.
How does BookSwap pay me for my books?
BookSwap issues cheques to a school, department head or contact
individual when payment is forthcoming.
What condition are the books classified in?
