How to Become a Teenage Textbook Seller

What Does a Teenage Textbook Seller do?

As a teenage textbook seller, you will sell your textbooks and other textbook products online. You will be responsible for acquiring textbooks, listing them, selling them, and managing customer feedback. These are all steps to ensure that your customer that buys your textbook will be satisfied, and also to make sure you have more customers in the future. Textbook sellers will find textbooks at places like Goodwill and Savers, purchase them for a low cost, then sell them to websites that will buy them back at a high cost than what was paid.

How Much Does a Teenage Textbook Seller Get Paid?

As a teenage textbook seller, you can expect to earn $5 to $25 per textbook that you sell, depending on the size and quality of your textbook. One of the main problems with becoming a textbook seller is that you’ll need to continue to find textbooks to sell for a profit. This isn’t easy to do, but it’s possible to do over and over if you look in the right places.

How Can I Get Started as a Teenage Textbook Seller?

  1. The first thing you need to do to start the process of selling textbooks is to find a place that has a number of them available for purchase. Most likely, you’ll be able to find them at a local Goodwill store, Savers, or even some Thrift and Pawn Shops. What you can do is use the website BookScouter.com to put in book ISBN numbers and see what book companies are willing to buy them for.
  2. After you’ve found books that will sell for more than what you pay, you can list them at Bookscouter.com. When doing this, be sure to fill all the details in including uploading pictures if possible. You should include the quality of your textbooks, the edition, and all information that you would need if you were buying textbooks. The more details you have, the higher chance it is to be bought by a customer.
  3. Sell your textbook. You can now wait for an offer for your textbook. Most websites where you can sell your textbooks will have a specific figure people can buy them for and then you will just accept the order and get everything ready to ship. A lot of the online book websites will give you a shipping label, all you need to do is provide the book with a box or package to ship it in.
  4. Congrats, you’re officially a teenage textbook seller. This will start off slow at first when you’re trying to figure out what books will sell, but as you become more experience you’ll be able to quickly and easily spot textbooks that will sell quickly. If you stick with this for 6-12 months and really get good at it, there is a good chance you’ll make more doing this than you would at a regular part-time job.
