Buyback Terms and Conditions
Before submitting a buyback, please read the following policy document carefully
and contact customer service with any questions at
- General information
By submitting a buyback, you are stating that you are the rightful owner of and
have the right to sell the books listed. You agree to the terms and conditions as
outlined on this page and have read and understand our buyback FAQ completely. Buybacks
must be postmarked within 5 business days of creation for quotes to be valid.
- What we buy
TextbooksRus.com buys new and used books with an ISBN. Books without an ISBN are not
accepted. To sell old, rare, or unique books please
contact Abebooks.com customer service.
- Buyback quotes
Buyback quotes are valid for the ISBN and condition entered. Make sure to enter
items correctly to receive the correct quote. The most accurate way to find the
ISBN of a book is on the copyright page. Books with an ISBN stickered on the back
may be misrepresented.
If we receive an item that is different in either ISBN or condition than recorded,
your quote will be adjusted. You will be paid the current quote for the item received.
Many novels have multiple versions with different ISBNs, and textbooks can have
different editions. Many older versions and editions have no value. If we receive
an item with no value, it will be discarded.
- Selling used books
Many books come with CDs, access codes, manuals, or other supplementary materials.
When selling a book back to TextbooksRus.com, even used items must include such supplements.
Books that are received without supplements typically have a much lower value or
no value at all.
- Condition of used books
Most used books are considered multiple use items and may contain some highlighting
or writing. This is not the case for study guides, workbooks, lab / special manuals,
and law books. These items must be received clean and completely free of writing,
highlighting, and notes. If any of these items are received in unacceptable condition, they will not be returned to you and will be discarded.
- Damaged books
We do not buy items with any kind of visible damage including but not limited to
water / liquid damage, spine damage, loose or missing pages, and books with torn,
taped, or missing covers. Books must be in sellable condition to be purchased. Books
that are rejected by your local bookstore because they are in poor condition will
also be rejected by TextbooksRus.com.
- Other unacceptable books
TextbooksRus.com does not buy or sell custom editions, used loose-leaf / binder ready
products, used / opened software, or defective / mis-printed books.
- Rejected books
Items that have no value or are otherwise rejected because they violate our purchasing
guidelines will be discarded and not returned to you. Read our FAQ carefully to
ensure that all of the items you plan to sell have value and can be purchased.
