I have a few big textbooks to sell, and I have a buyer. The books are worth like $180 each (new).
Do I sell them for 50% of the original? more? 75% sounds a little high to me.

What do you think?

As much as you can get, offer them for 75% of the original price, if he agrees then you're both happy, if he says no and haggles you down to 50% then you're both still happy.

well if you sell em to your bookstore your gonna get like 30% so anything above that is pretty much a win.

Find out how much you can get them for at a second hand text book store. My campus accepts books and resells them for students and there is another place that does that in town too. Once you've figured that out sell them for a few dollars/your currency cheaper. Put up some posters around campus and your books will go fast. You don't need to sell them through your school. Why let them take more of your money? Hope this helps

Craigslist is so much more effective.

Observe the prices of the other sellers on the site you want to sell your books on. Mark your books down $5.00 (or £ than the lowest offer and be sure that your book is in better quality. You'll be the one everybody wants to buy from. Be honest and very descriptive about the conditions of your books. Best of luck!

try to sell them over the internet, through craigslist, or campus advertising. youll get more money back that way.

you'll be lucky to get 50% back at your school's bookstore. if they 'have bought too many already' they offer you less money for it. i dont understand this logic, but book buybacks do not make any sense.

if the professor is moving to a new edition the next semester, or if the class isnt being taught again the next semester, you wont get squat back for it. this happens quite a lot.
