Start Selling Your Used Textbooks to Classmates

By: Mr. Wade

In your dashboard, enter the books you want to sell into the selling column. Enter the books you will need next semester into the buying column. BookTrapper will search for other students at your school that need books you are selling and have books you need. You can message them, arrange a price, meet, and complete a transaction on campus.

Select Your School

Immediately after signing up, you'll select your school from our database of over 9,000+ colleges and universities. Tell us whether you’re on the semester or quarter system, and start posting books for sale. If you're in the United States, we most likely have your university - just start typing and it will auto search. 

Post Books to Sell and Buy helps you bypass the campus bookstore - everyone who has been in college knows what a rip off campus bookstores are. BookTrapper's technology helps you get a better buyback price and a better sale price by selling directly to other students, cutting out the middle man (the campus bookstore.
