The book selling business is huge, and there are lots of sellers out there who are making money by selling books, be it old or new. If we specifically target to sell old books, we should keep in mind that they need to be marketed very religiously to sell for profits. The profit margins in used books are generally small, and you need to sell in bulk to become successful. There are few things you need to know when you are selling a used book online:

  • Make sure the used book that you are putting up for sale is in excellent condition. No customer wants to own a book that is poor in condition. The binding and the cover of the book should be impeccable.
  • As a seller, you should know the price at which the book is currently being sold so that you can rate the book accordingly, demanding too high a price would mean that customers would never be interested and similarly a small price would reduce the profit margins and may also make the customer feel that there is definitely something wrong with the book and this is why it has been priced so low.
  • The seller should be familiar with the market trends and know what customer category to target with the books that he has to sell. If the seller has used fiction and that too in pirated versions than the young generation and teens are the right targets because they would be interested in buying the books they want cheap. As for adults and people who are avid readers look for hard bound original books. This marketing insight is fundamental to be understood.
  • The books should be sold at multiple platforms so that the customer outreach is maximized.
  • When you as a seller are setting up the price, you need to make sure that the price is on the lower side, because when people are buying used books, they want them at lowest possible prices.
  • The details of the book, with proper ISBN, should be listed. This helps the customer check the authenticity and originality of the book. A good detailed description of the number of pages in the book and the title page, a bit of book summary and author info should all be included as this helps the buyer make the decision.
  • If you are selling used course books and text books, the conditions should be neat, and there should not be anything written on it. Some people have the habit of taking notes on the side of text book pages, if the notes are worthy, then they can increase the worth of the book. But if they are mere scribbling then they are of no use to anyone and reduce the quality of the text book.
  • Making the book neat and clean, with proper cover jackets and mended book spine and torn pages will make the book worthy of being bought. Disclosing the actual condition of the book is also important so that the buyers can make an informed decision.
  • Setting up the proper payment channel and adding a few more options to it will contribute to making the buying process much easier for the customers.
