How to make money selling books online


alright in this video we are gonna help
you take these if you have any of these laying around your house and turn them
into this if that’s something that interest you stick with us and we’re gonna dive
right in alright so how do you do this you might ask well here’s we do let’s do it first you grab your phone here this my phone it actually has a little microphone in here this is how you you’re hearing but what we’re going to do is use it a little bit differently so to get this process started what I did was I just began selling off all of my books
and so I had a whole bunch of books I had I think 4 to 500 different books
that I’d gathered over the years and it really just wasn’t going back and
reading them so I figured I’m just going to get rid of all of them other than the
ones that I absolutely love and I go back to regularly and this process could
be really messy and not lucrative but I found a way to do it to make it really
quick and easy and help you maximize the amount of money that you can make from
your books alright so now first thing you want to
do is just go open the app store so just go over here and when you get this
popped open you can just go ahead and hit the search box search for an app
called Book Scouter it is we’re gonna install this app give that a minute to
install and then click open alright now that you over at the Book Scouter app
this app what it allows you to do is quickly find out for each of your books
how much money you’re gonna be able to sell it for so what you can do is you
can take the book and you can actually type in the ISBN number which it’s a
long probably I don’t know 12 digit number or something on the back of the
book or you can just grab the scan barcode thing and then just quickly scan
through all your books so you can go through a whole bunch of books we’re
really really fast with this alright so we will just grab our book flip over to
the back side of it and just scan that barcode alright now what you will see is
all the different companies who are willing to buy this book back and how
much they’re willing to pay and so you’ll see that you know it ranges from
550 all the way down to a bunch of these companies don’t want to buy it at all
and to simplify this process the way I did was I found a handful these
companies who wanted to buy the book back
and I sent books only to a few of them I think it was three or four different
companies and for each of these companies basically the way it works is
you just fill up a big box of all of these books that they’ve given you a
quote for and then they pay for shipping you just print off the shipping label
mail the box back to them and then they send you a check so it’s not like you
have to mail individual books to 25 different companies that’s not a win for
anybody so what I would do is just kind of come here and then just click sell
and then it’ll add the book over to your cart at this company and then you just
come back over here to Book Scouter do a new search and then we can just look up
another book and we’ll just go ahead and tap scan barcode and something when
you’re looking at these barcodes you’ll notice here there are two different ones
there and what you want to do is just get the one on the left the one that’s
the actual ISBN sometimes the app has a problem if you’re scanning the whole
thing so in this case this book yes this book just does not look like it’s worth
much money so it’s only worth 12 cents so if I was sending something back to
sell your book back or that company there I would throw it in the box but I
you know it’s only 12 cents so I’m not gonna read too much into that and you’ll
find that you’ll find that some of the books are just not worth anything and
other ones are and so here’s another book we’ll just scan- scan the barcode and then here’s another one for sell
back your book so I’ll just add that to the cart there and then it’ll just
continue adding up all the ones you added and then once you kind of get
everything of value in there then you can go to those companies that you’ve
kind of added some to the cart you can print off the shipping label with them
and each one of them has is slightly different but you can kind of print off
the shipping label and then just ship it off and then get paid not too bad so
when I did this I ended up making about a hundred and seventy nine dollars for
all the books that I sold back to these companies and and then all the rest I
just took over to Goodwill and drop them off over there all right so that’s it
one simple app you take a few minutes scan the books you send them off and you
get paid pretty simple way to kind of turn your books into cash don’t you
think and a bonus tip here like you can go to garage sales you could go to like
goodwill and take that app and just go in there like you go
into Goodwill and pay a quarter for a book they might be able to sell for five
bucks I mean that’s not a bad way to make some extra cash as well so in this

  6. Kiara Thompson says:

    I’m sorry I’m a little confused about the shipping do we just put the book in the mail box and it goes to the company? Or do they come and get the book?

  7. Sue B. says:

    I use this app for selling my books. I do not always find much for my books, but it does save time with the scanner. I am trying to sell a lot of older textbooks and there are not many people buying them back, but maybe it works better for general books.

  8. David Ramos says:

    This is actually really cool – I wish i knew about this before donating like 4 boxes of books to goodwill haha. My wife and I finished our masters degree programs so we sold back a bunch of textbooks and decided to declutter our library at the same time. I've still got another box so I'm going to be trying this out. Thanks for the tool!

  9. Brenda Hughes says:

    I have a home library wall unit full of books (300+) & this video has inspired me to sell some of them! I love books & it may be difficult to let any go. I have several vintage typewriters in my home library as well, because as a new writer, I am inspired by these things! I am working on writing my own book…first one…and dream of my bookshelves filled with my books! Tomorrow, Sep 5, is my birthday and I am excited to download this app and sell some books…even on my birthday! Hope it will be a prosperous day!
