I've used WeBuyBooks once to sell about 100 books (!) and am happy to share my experience:

- The price they pay for a book is based on the current demand for it rather than what it originally cost to buy. A couple of books I bought for £5 and they offered me £25 for, many I paid £25 for and they offered me 50p. Don't try and predict what you think your books might be worth until you use the app.

- Most complaints on review sites about them seem to come from their app offering £15 or so for a book on the assumption it's in perfect condition but people send them a tatty old version they then offer them 15p for.

- WeBuyBooks used to, I don't know if it's the same now, charge you quite a bit for returning a book they offer to buy for less than they originally offered. Generally speaking, it's easier just to accept their lower offer.

- You couldn't when I used them sell two copies of the same book.

- It cost me a small fortune to send them every book wrapped in bubble-wrap and in a strong box. I never had any of my books rejected or downgraded by them, but again, many reviews seem to come from people sending a book in a simple large envelope and being surprised when it arrives damaged.

- You may well make far more selling your books through ebay or word of mouth, but you need to ask yourself if it's worth the effort.

I used eBay when I sold off old textbooks. They all went within a day for decent prices.

If anyone's thinking of doing this, I'd highly suggest waiting until they do a "max £1 selling fees" weekend or something. eBay fees are literally such a pain in the butt and the offer comes around quite often.

Just checked and there's one going on right now (I think the offer ends on Monday).
