    hi guys, I just started selling books on Amazon. there is a first option which buys pay £2.80 to seller. have any of you guys use to sell books? when you go to the post office, what type of post you choose to pay normally? do we pay at the counters or buy stamps to put in the red letter boxes ????

    Best to post first class recorded and package the books well in bubble wrap envelopes. You would pay at the counter usually and drop it in a bag, not in the post box.

    If these are university books then you'd probably be better selling directly to other students - no splitting profit with Amazon. I sold my books by making facebook posts on the relevant subject pages and putting up paper signs around campus.
