is webuybooks legit?Watch
- 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.
Just checked and there's one going on right now (I think the offer ends on Monday).
