Hi, I got together a load of books I've finished with, had a decko on t'internet and found 'We buy books'. After a bit of typing I'd managed to get rid of the books and been offered £38.00. Not a bad 30 minutes work!
Very happy to use this firm. Delivery was flawless, web experience also very smooth. Good communications and confirmation of receiving and paying. They do exactly what they say the moment you press the 'accept' button. Very happy to use again.
Lovely to get such quick and efficient notification of books received, etc., and website so easy and fun to use. Really great when books pop up as wanted. Only downside was that I asked for payment by cheque which I duly received after getting a card from the postman saying I had to go to the local PO to collect as no postage had been paid. To pick up my cheque I had to pay £1.50 as no stamp had been put on the letter. 50p for the postage and £1 for the PO's trouble and inconvenience. Note to self - have money for books paid directly into bank account!
Other than that - a great service and lots of fun sorting books, CDs etc.
I would highly recommend We buy books because their website is very easy to navigate and understand, they had the best offers for my books and when i had a query they responded quickly and politely. They kept me informed of each stage and it didn't take long at all before the money was in my account.
I tried the bar codes of several of my books & got the same message ' we only buy books based on demand' I didn't think my books were that out of the ordinary - Philippa Gregory & Suzanne Dunn?? Obviously after the rarer more expensive books - I'd rather list them myself on a resale site. Shan't be bothering with these again if they're that selective.
The only reason I'm not giving five stars is because of how picky the online mechanism is -- a good half of the books I tried to sell were rejected as not commercial enough. But otherwise it's a great service: free postage to them, quick payment once verified at their end, all quite easy.
The whole process is very easy. Typing in the ISBN, then packing into a box and just dropping off at the nearby Collect+ store. Does not cost anything to send off. When looking at the different sites that do this sort of thing, I found that WeBuyBooks offered the best prices (just on the basis of a few books), and took books that others rejected.
The process was very smooth and easy to complete. It just took a little time to enter each barcode and get the offer price. Once all the items were entered and offered, the process of printing the label and getting the box to a collection point was very smooth. Email notifications all the way telling me what was happening and very soon cash was in the bank. Thank you.
Does what it says on the tin! Good prices offered compared to other sites. Easy drop off service. Email arrived to let me know parcel had been received. Cheque arrived within a few days. Perfect all round.
