The number pad has a "978" button for ISBN-13's and an "X" button for the ISBN-10's that have the letter X.

We try very hard to make selling your books as simple as possible.
Following the three step process on our homepage, you start by simply entering the ISBNs of the books you want to sell into the form. Ship your books to us for FREE, and then collect your money via PayPal or check.
On average, it takes 13 days from the time you click "sell my books" to when payment is issued. It can be shorter or longer depending on what shipping method is used, and your proximity to Hillsboro, Oregon. After your books are received, inspected and marked as 'processed', payment will be made. Payment is sent within one business day of 'processed' status.
We buy mostly college textbooks, but sometimes other books as well. View our examples books we buy page, which shows
examples and categories of textbooks that we commonly purchase.
Most of the books we purchase have a publication date within the past three years. Also, our example 500 list shows a list of books
we have recently purchased. What we buy can change day by day or week by week depending on resale values, our current inventory, demand, and other factors.
Shipping is always FREE with our pre-paid mailing label that you print right from your computer.
If you do not have a printer, simply contact us to request US Post Office shipping labels to be mailed to you.
Further instructions on FedEx or the US Post Office are provided after you submit your books to be sold. Also, if you need to know where to get a box to mail your books, please read our frequently asked questions.
