How to make a textbook resale website
The new book on the modern chemistry textbook resales can be sold for a fraction of the cost, a recent report says.
The textbook reselling site, called Booksellers Resale, was launched last year and allows students to get a book back if it’s too old or outdated.
The new report, published in the journal Modern Chemistry, said that resale sites had grown by 300 per cent over the past five years.
But this report found that most of these websites are being used for educational purposes.
The report found: Resale sites typically allow students to purchase books online, with the resale site’s owner selling the books to students.
They often have the book sold for pennies or even less than the original cost, or sometimes a much lower price.
The buyer typically makes no effort to maintain the books and rarely maintains them for more than a year.
Some resale websites allow students and staff to buy books for free or in limited quantities, but the sites often don’t maintain or sell books in these limited situations.
Students and staff often have to pay for books to be kept, or buy them directly from the resales, making the resolees profit margins even smaller.
The resale resale has become a lucrative business for students and educators.
One of the biggest sources of profit is in the books themselves, with resale prices averaging $30 per book, the report said.
The bookseller industry has become lucrative because it’s cheap, easy to set up, and accessible, with many books being sold for less than $1.00 each.
Resale websites also help students with books in low demand, because they are often easy to use, and can help students find books that they may not have otherwise seen.
The researchers say this type of resale also helps schools gain an understanding of the scientific methods that they must learn in order to succeed in their courses.
The research was done by the National Center for Education Statistics, which is part of the US Department of Education.
