Very easy to list things for sale. Like the way the prices are calculated as you add more items. Brilliant communication and kept informed every step of the way. Prompt payment and hassle free. Would use again.
It was very easy and quick to input my books. Easy guidelines to follow. Had the box ready packed and just printed the prepaid post label and UPS came to pick it up the next morning. Had the money in my bank account in no time. Whole procedure took 3 days. Excellent service!
Easy instructions on what to do.
Easy to drop off your parcel at participating collection points.
Very fast turnaround.
I had my cheque in my hands after 6 days , if I had selected a different payment method it would have been even quicker I would think.
I used a very big company before to trade in stuff and It took a lot longer to get my money.
Thanks - will use again, takes the hassle out of trying to think how to give books a new home! Not all my books were wanted to I took the rest to the local charity shop. seemed like a fair price for those that were accepted, being as i would have got nothing for them otherwise.
I was really pleased with the service, the fact that the books were collecting quickly and for free, that I was kept up to date with progress and that the payment came through quickly. Wish I'd done it earlier (and got rid of a lot of old uni books!)
I've used We Buy Books twice in the last couple of weeks, once for a set of books and once for a set of CDs. I have been very happy with their service both times. They keep you updated about progress better than some other sites. Based on my limited experience I would say that they don't accept as many items as some other sites, but for those items they do accept their prices are often better.
From start to finish my transaction with this company was handled very well. The parcel was picked up on the day I had booked and I was informed of the parcel arriving at it's destination. Also I was informed of the checking of the items and that the money being paid was on it's way. I am very pleased with the whole process and all done in a week.
I had no problems in using this site and the value given for the books I had to sell were satisfactory. The Arrangements to send the books to the company worked well and the money was received within a few days.
Entered my barcodes and placed my order. I went to a shop nearby to hand in the box of cd's, got a receipt and the next day they got collected by the courier. Email correspondence was excellent and got my money paid into my bank account within a week. Would definitely use again!
THIS SERVICE WAS EASY, I JUST ENTERED IN THE CODE FROM THE BACK OF THE BOOKS I WANTED TO SELL, GOT OFFERED A PRICE (WHICH YOU DONT HAVE TO ACCEPT IF YOU DONT WANT TO), PACKAGED UP MY BOOKS IN A BOX AND DROPPED THEM OFF AT A LOCAL SHOP (THIS OPTION WAS EASIER FOR ME AS I WANTED TO DROP THEM OFF WHEN IT SUITED ME BUT IF YOU ARE AT HOME ALL DAY THEN THEY WILL COLLECT FROM YOUR DOOR) GOT AN EMAIL IN A FEW DAYS TO SAY THEYD RECIEVED THEM AND THEN IN ABOUT 5 DAYS THE MONEY WAS IN MY ACCOUNT.
I did a lot of research and then decided to go with WebuyBooks. I was proven right. I spent hours entering almost 200 DVDs in the system and the next day I logged on to print the label, they were gone. I called customer services, they immediately apologised and email me a Royal Mail label, promising to reimburse me the original amount. I then received the money promptly in my account.
Since then, I used the courier service twice. I have already received one payment and am waiting for the second.
The communication has been excellent, the online order status updated regularly. I would not hesitate to use them again.
Have now sent two parcels off to We Buy Books. The process is very easy and efficient and that part is easy. The tedious part is going through books that are saleable - that is the same with any site however. Could be a little less clunky if having entered an ISBN and got the 'sorry not interested' message, the ISBN box automatically cleared (Zapper's does which really speeds up the checking process). Would be great if WBB (or any of the similar services) could publish on their site a list of areas (for fact) and novels (for fiction) that are actively wanted - would help people understand whether it is worth their time sorting through their books. Have to admit to being a bit cross when a beautiful hardback (eg gardening or cookery) inevitably receives a mere 25p offer - not prepared to sell at this price when the new book cost perhaps £30 plus - may be the pricing could be more generous for these? I would rather give these to charity and see if they can make more for their causes - so WBB is probably losing out from others on that front too. A lower minimum sales would help too though am sure this relates to the economic model of WBB in covering couriers - Zapper manages a £10 minimum so may be look at courier costs (myHermes is typically cheaper than Click and Collect with similar coverage...).
A very easy, trouble free way to get rid of the books, CDS that have gotten dusty on our bookshelves after not being touched in a while. Rather than just give them away, we managed to get some ££ for them. It was so simple and easy to do, with a really user friendly website.
It was very convenient that we could have it arranged for the box to be picked up by UPS rather than carry a heavy load to the post office. Very satisfied and I will definitely use this site again.
I did a few comparisons to other sites that also buy books and 'webuybooks' gave me the best price for them! the extra 10% earned via a code from their facebook page was also very received. Thumbs up!
First time i have used a online website to sell my books and found it very easy from start to finish, local delivery drop offs that were close for me, once my books were received my payment was sent. Very pleased
There are quite a few books that are not accepted which is disappointing. The sequence of sending is good but I had a problem with my money which was not paid into my account when stated and I had to ring them. This was an accepted mistake which was rectified quickly. I will use the company again although the payment is sometimes very little and you have to find numerous books in order to raise the £15 minimum.
I was not really aware of book buyback services until recently and was delighted to find most of the books my husband and I have in duplicate were in demand. We Buy Books made the details of the process clear, the nearest drop-off point was not far from my home and the books were collected that same day. Within just a few days the money appearred in my PaytPal account - very simple!
Thanks We Buy Books - I would use you again and I would also recommend you. Can't say better than that :-}
Okay, so the prices don't match what you paid for DVDs 10 yrs ago. Damn this digital age! But they are better than Music Magpie (although less open to popular titles). Couldn't fault We Buy Books but their courier (UPS) were a no show on the first pickup date. WBB were great at sorting it out though.
All in all, I'd use again despite then niggle which wasn't their fault.
Webuybooks gave me over £100 for a small collection of my university text books. I wasn't sure if thy might try to back out of the offer or complain about the condition of the books (which was fine but thy didn't look new or anything!) but they honoured their offer. Really superb service I would recommend any students to sell on their text books this way.
Some valuations of the books were disappointing; others were surprisingly high. Without knowing the market my subjective value placed on books was different. I realised that all I had to do was view the pile of books, that I no longer had a use for, as a whole. In this light I got rid of about 15 books I would otherwise have thrown away, and was paid £50. Can't be bad!
Your website was very simple to use all I had to do was type in the ISBN number of the books. I then sold them to you and within 24 hours I had dropped them off at my local collection point without having to worry about the cost of postage. Within 7 days I then had a cheque through the post and I was constantly kep updated about the status of my items via email.
This is an excellent service, I am so glad I found your website and I have told many family and friends about it.
I have tried at least 3 other websites to sell my book. I can only say that WE BUY Books was the best. The staff were very helpful, I have to phone several times since I could not print my labels and Ms Lindsey has helped me a lot and I wish to take to opportunity to give a special thanks to her (she should be employee of the year if you nominate one each year !)
Also they have paid me more quickly than the other companies and I have also compared the price before choosing we buy books.
We buy books were offering me more money for most of my books
Well done and keep it up
Will try recommend we buy books to all my friend
