You may decide to go the old eBay way hoping someone will bid on your books, however, you will quickly notice that you spend a lot of money on insertion fees and quite a lot of time waiting for the book to sell. The reality is, you will be most likely be disappointed with the final offer.

Sites like WeBuyBooks allow you to post your books, and they pay within five working days. No sitting around waiting for bids. Within a week, they pay you. The process is simple:
- Enter the ISBN Number, which is normally found in the back of the book
- The company then sends you a valuation of the book
- Package the book and attach your pre-paid postage label (they offer free postage)
- Wait for your check
