eBAY TIP 28 – PROFIT FROM OLD BOOKSListing books one by one on eBay may get the most cash, but it’ll take some time. One of the best options for selling old books is Amazon Marketplace, as you only need to search for the book and write a short description. Your listing will stay up until it sells. Amazon provides full reviews of most books from its database – if you’re listing a few in one go, this saves time. It automatically adds £2.80 for delivery, so ensure your sale price covers postage if it’s a heavy tome. Amazon charges 86p when your book sells, plus an extra 17.25% on top (see a full list of Amazon fees). Also popular is online second-hand bookshop Green Metropolis, which is especially good for old paperbacks. All books cost £3.75, of which the site pays sellers £3. The £3 must cover your postage costs too, although you’re allowed to add an extra fee for heavy books.
