The Marketplace is a feature of Bookstores.com that allows booksellers (including
students and individuals) to list their items for sale on Bookstores.com.
There is no charge to list your items for sale on Bookstores.com. If your item
sells, Bookstores.com will deduct a small commission (15%) from the item's selling
price or 15 cents per item, whichever is larger.
We have the most generous shipping credit policy in the industry. We give you 100%
of what we collect. That's $2.99 for standard and $5.49 for expedited.
We offer several payment options for marketplace sellers:
- Check (by mail)
- ACH (Direct Deposit) (for US bank accounts only)
Payments are made twice a month and all purchases are cleared 30 days after the
initial purchase date. This method ensures no chargebacks for returns.
International, instructor's, and annotated editions must be listed under their correct ISBN.
Any of these versions incorrectly listed for sale under the US Student Edition ISBN will be
removed.You can list any type of book you like. Bookstores.com is the first (and only)
marketplace on the Web to support all types of books -- including international,
instructors, and annotated editions.
You can list your books one at a time (recommended for individual sellers) via the
Web, many at a time via the Web, or in bulk via our automation interfaces (we support
many different file formats). If you are interested in volume selling, please contact us. You can list as many books as you
like. Your listings stay active until they sell or you end them. As a marketplace
seller, it is your responsibility to ensure that book traits such as international
edition, instructors edition, etc., are properly noted and maintained with all titles
