An Ebay account is needed to sell books on Half.com. This only takes a few minutes to set up, and it also allows you to bid and sell other products on that auction site. Payments are made from a Paypal account when buying and selling on this website, so users should make sure they have a valid Paypal email on file here also.
When listing books for sale, it can be tempting to rate the condition as “very good” or “like new” even if the book has significant wear. While this could land a higher price for the book, it could lead to negative feedback or even a dispute through Paypal. The condition codes listed on the site are easy to understand, but if there is any doubt as to the actual condition of a book it’s best to downgrade it rather than upgrade it.
It’s easy to modify inventory or change the selling price of a listed item once it goes live. The messaging system also allows buyers and sellers to communicate with each other so it is easy to track shipments as well. Using Half.com to buy and sell textbooks can not only save students money, but also makes it easy to get books delivered to their door.
