I posted a textbook on half.com because I’m done with the class. Not only does the site now tell me what I can charge for the book, it also charges a 15% fee for the listing — its commission– and only reimburses a flat rate for shipping.
Wish I’d known about all those changes before I listed my textbook. Now I’m getting about 25 dollars on a 60 dollar book, which I could probably have sold locally for much more.
AND they only pay you twice monthly, which means they get to use my money and earn interest on it ON TOP of the commission.
No more half.com
Is there any decent online selling place any more????
ETA: I’ve been a long time customer, and have sold textbooks through them (as well as buying) for years. I haven’t sold anything in the last year or so, and I really wasn’t aware of these changes prior to the sale of the book.
