November 23rd, 2018 by Skip McGrath

Sell Used Books for Profit

Selling used books on eBay, Amazon and other Internet sites is one of the greatest opportunities available to home business operators today.

Sales of used books on the Internet increased over 30% last year. Almost one of every 10 books sold is a used book, and the majority –over 60% of those are bought online from small individual businesses –many operating out of their homes.

How To Sell Used Books on eBay, Amazon and the Internet is a complete guide to starting and running an online book business. It is now available for immediate delivery at: http://www.skipmcgrath.com/products/sell-used-books-ebay-amazon.php.

Anyone can learn how to start and run an online book business for about $100 in start-up costs.

Used books are the perfect product for the small eBay, Amazon or online seller.

  • They are easy to find
  • Although there are tons of expensive books, most books sell for less than $25. This attracts few thieves and scam artists
  • Used books are highly profitable.  You can buy books for a quarter of fifty cents that will sell for $10, $20, $30 or more –sometimes much more.
  • Books are easy to list, store and ship
  • Book prices are easy to research and determine
  • Books and book condition descriptions are standard and well understood.
  • Book cover photographs are available for most modern books just by typing in the ISBN number
  • It only takes a couple of minutes to create a book listing. Amazon, eBay and other sites have standard pre-written descriptions that will fill in automatically just by entering the ISBN number
  • Perfect, low-risk business for the part-time seller
  • The online book market is growing at double-digit rates and shows no sign of slowing down. Used books make up a larger and larger portion of that business
  • Recession-proof business. When the economy slows down, used book sales increase

Good morning, I bought your book “How To Sell Used Books on eBay, Amazon and the Internet” about 8-9 years ago but didn’t do much with the business at the time. I have the time to try now and was wondering if you have updated the book since then. I have the second edition dated August 2009. If it’s updated is there a discount for owners of previous editions? Thank you, James Creel

I don’t have any luck selling books on eBay. I list them under the lowest price of my competitors and still no one even looks at them. Most are highly sought by buyers. Free shipping on a $10 book is almost half the selling price of the book. Why work for pennies?
