I’ve got to say, I was pretty skeptical that this would work. A few weeks ago, I wrote about discovering the website. It seemed too good to be true that I could ship out a bunch of books that they were willing to pay me for (postage-paid, no less!), and have the money deposited directly into my PayPal account (you get a 3% bonus for using PayPal as payment method). But today, I checked my email and found that the payment had posted this morning.

You just punch in the ISBN numbers of the books you have, and it tells you how much they’re willing to pay you for your books. It appears that the rarer the book, the more they’ll give you. You’re provided with a postage-paid label that you attach to your box o’ books. I sent mine through U.S.P.S. Media Mail, so it took about 2 weeks for them to receive the parcel.

And Cash4Books will pay you for referring people to their site who successfully sell used books to them. Check out the following link if you’re interested in trying to sell your books to them: referral link

While it was “just” $31, every little bit helps.
