So you just need to check the website first. It must be reliable and trusted site. You can also get its feedback from other students or can check the reviews on this site.
Selling The Damaged Books:
The bookstores love the books that are in good conditions and they even pay the higher fees for those which are in great conditions. If you will send your book in undamaged condition then you can get the high prices but if you will send a damaged book then you may not get the money back form this online bookstore. Your book may ship to them but because of their bad condition, you will not get your money for selling your book. Therefore you must need to make sure that your books are in good condition that they will be accepted before you even put them into the box.
