Buyback Shipping Guidelines

Bookstores.com will provide you with a prepaid and trackable shipping label. View a sample shipping label. Delivery confirmation is included with the label, so you can verify that the item successfully arrived at our location. The cost of this label is billed to us.

  • A dual FedEx/USPS prepaid label is the carrier for your buyback. This service guarantees delivery in 3-7 business days.

Shipping Instructions

  1. Please review our buyback packaging guidelines for valuable information prior to packing and shipping your books.
  2. Print your free shipping label and attach it to your box.
  3. Every carton you send MUST use a unique shipping label. If you have more than one carton, you must print free additional shipping labels for each carton you send in. Failure to do so may lead to loss of carton and books. Bookstores.com is not responsible for items lost due to multiple cartons utilizing the same shipping label.
  4. Drop off packages at the nearest FedEx drop off location, United States Post Office, or arrange for a free pickup from the United States Postal Service by calling 1-800-ASK-USPS. When dropping off your package, please select a United States Post Office, FedEx-staffed center, FedEx Office, or FedEx Authorized ShipCenter. Do NOT use a FedEx drop box to ship your package-it will not be processed or delivered. If you call to schedule a pickup, make sure to mention you have a "return label."
  5. Drop off packages with USPS labels at your local post office.
