Pricing second hand textbooks

Normally in most classifieds sites where students are selling their second hand textbooks, they advertise their used textbooks at a discount from the original price. If textbooks are one year old or the previous semester’s they will usually be advertised for a 20-30 % discount from the original price. It is best to scan through a few classified sites to get a feel for what price ranges certain textbooks are selling for before deciding to contact the seller and purchase a book. Books that are older than one year can be sold for a discount of 50-60% of original price, depending if it is a prescribed textbook or a reference textbook. Reference textbooks will keep their value much better because normally there isn’t a new edition to buy each year. A good site to advertise your textbooks is gopost classifieds.
