When is a good time of year to sell used curriculum?


Recommended Posts

Summer on eBay, particularly if you are selling sets.

 

I list most books on Amazon year-round, although I wait on college books until right before a new semester starts. I'm getting very good prices right now on college books, not much is moving on other books. That's OK though. I like Amazon because it's minimal work to list, and it stays up until it sells. They also collect the $$$.

I normally have 2 sellingpoints:

January (people who want to change mid schoolyear, are planning ahead, or are done with there planning en need some extra's)

During summer (mid june - mid september) especially my b&m school textbooks, as my prices + shippings are cheaper then the same books at their schools.

As a Buyer, I think the highest prices are during August and September, because there is more demand and less supply.  In 2016, I had to get 2 books for DD, for her Spanish 3 course. The textbook and the workbook.  I almost fell over, the first time I saw the prices for the Workbook, because for Spanish 1 and Spanish 2, we'd only paid a few dollars as I recall.  I waited a month or more, and the price dropped quite a bit, but then DD was going to need the books, so I bit the bullet and bought both of them from the same Amazon Seller (BuyBack Express in IL). Both books are in excellent condition, so that worked out OK for us, but if you are a Seller, I would hold on until next Summer when there's lots of demand and the prices tend to be higher.
