- How to buy a textbook on BUbooks.com...
BUbooks.com requires a free membership to buy a textbook in order to protect the privacy of the seller. Once you are logged in, find a textbook you want to buy and press the "Buy Textbook" button. This sends an email to the seller with your contact information you gave us when you made a membership. When you click the "Buy Textbook" button, make sure you are serious about buying that textbook because it actually takes the textbook off the website. |
Then its up to the seller to complete the transaction. The seller must email you back to set up a time and place to meet. If you do not receive an email within a few days, you may want to consider buying a textbook from someone else. We are not involved in the actual transaction between the buyer and seller. BUbooks.com has no control over the quality or safety of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. We do not know whether a buyer or seller will complete a transaction. BUbooks is only providing the web space, nothing more.
- How to sell a textbook on BUbooks.com...

Once you are logged in, you have two ways to add a textbook. The fastest and most reliable way is to use our quick list add book feature. All that is required from the textbook is the ISBN number off the back of the textbook. Our service fills in all the available textbook information as well as shows you a picture of the textbook you are entering. All you have to list is the textbook price and department.
