Selling books online: Marketplace vs. trade in sites
Selling books online through sites like Amazon and eBay takes a bit more time but they’re generally the best option for making more money and securing higher mark up on prices, especially if your book is rare. You can also incorporate the cost of posting your book to your seller to make even more profit.

Selling books on trade-in sites like ‘’Ziffit’’ or ‘’We Buy Books’’ is often much quicker and easier, but you can run the risk of being quoted a fraction of the price you could secure elsewhere. They will, however, create you a label for your sold items, meaning post and packaging is generally free.
