You deserve a fair deal when selling your textbooks.

That’s why Page Exchange offers what we believe is the best rate of any textbook re-sale platform. When you sell your books on Page Exchange, you keep 80% of the proceeds. That’s an estimated two to eight times more money in your pocket based on the alleged rates of return of bookstores and buyback services.

Plus, you’re in control of the whole process, from start to finish. Set your own price, post as many books as you want, and get paid promptly.
