Sell Second Hand Textbooks

Here you can submit a request to sell your books to us. 

If the book does not show, it generally means we are not looking to buy. If you do not receive a quote within 5 business days, it means we are no longer purchasing this textbook. 

 

Please have a quick read of our FAQ below prior to submitting a request.

Sell Second Hand Textbooks FAQ

I bought a book brand new – how do I sell it?

Select the sell books tab on the homepage and enter the ISBN of the book. Details of the book should pre-populate and we will send you a quote. If nothing appears, it generally means that we are not looking to buy. We cover postage to our address and pay upon receiving the books. Otherwise you may drop by our store!

 

What qualifies as a second hand book in GOOD or EXCELLENT condition?

Only books in Good or Excellent condition are accepted by Zookal. Books that have the following are not accepted:

- Excessive writing of any form
- Missing pages, front cover, torn or loose pages
- Water damage and stains
- Excessive highlighting (greater than 5% of the total pages in the textbook)
- Missing Text
- Any other significant damage

We also do not accept the following:

- Custom Publications and most Law books
- Illegally obtained or printed books

PLEASE NOTE: Books received that do not meet these conditions are not eligible for return.

 

How do I give the book to you?

Free Delivery: Print out either an Australian Post or ParcelPoint shipping label via http://parcelpoint.com.au/Zookal/return, pack your book carefully into a box and tape the shipping label on the outside. You may then drop this off at your nearest Australia Post or ParcelPoint outlet.

Drop-Off: Bring your books to our Alexandria warehouse located at Unit 3, 26A Ralph Street, Alexandria, NSW, 2015 between 11am and 5pm. Please call 02 9700 8895 before dropping off any books. 

 

How do I get paid?

When we receive your books and their condition is confirmed, we will transfer the money into your bank account immediately.

 

Will I always receive the payment quote?

Not necessarily. All books are inspected upon arrival. If they do not satisfy the conditions mentioned above, the quote will be adjusted accordingly. If the book is so damaged that it is not rentable, it will be recycled and you will not receive any payment. You will be contacted if this is the case and you may pick up the books from our Alexandria warehouse if you wish to keep them. Please note that the book must be sent to us within 30 days of us providing a quote. 

 

If the book does not show, it generally means we are not looking to buy. If you do not receive a quote within 5 business days, it means we are no longer purchasing this textbook.
