Prices for buying textbooks back are determined by three categories:
These books will be used for the upcoming term per the request of WilmU Faculty. Books that meet this category will be purchased on average at 40% of current list price.
Books that fall into this category are books that have NOT been requested by WilmU Faculty for the upcoming term or that we a surplus of. In this case, a wholesaler will pay the wholesale market value. Wholesale market value ranges from 0-33% of the retail price, depending on the national demand for the book.
Books that fall into this category have NOT been requested by WilmU Faculty for the upcoming term, or are books that we have a surplus, and/or do NOT have a wholesale market value. These Books tend to be older titles that have gone out of print, have been replaced by a newer edition, or are not commonly used on campuses across the nation (local titles). The Campus Stores nor the wholesale company need these titles and therefore cannot pay any money for them. We can donate or recycle these books at your request.
- We cannot quote buyback prices over the phone without physically determining the condition and edition of the title.
- You do not need your sales receipt in order to sell your used books.
- The best time to sell your books back is at the end of the current school session.
- Limit 1 copy per student.

- A one-time use item, such as an online access code that cannot be used by another student or software accompanying the book may not be reusable.
