Posted on by admin in Selling Books Online Leave a comment

Selling books online is slightly different from selling random things online. It requires knowledge and delicacy. I say slightly different but equally easy. If you are considering an online book selling business then let me congratulate you on your choice.

You’d be surprised to know that how many people are buying all kinds of books online. Just keep these guidelines in mind when starting online book selling.

Apply your knowledge of books to your business

When I said in the beginning that book selling is somewhat different from random online selling I meant this. Love and passion for the books is essential. If you read books only then you would think like a buyer or a book lover. If you are a book lover, you are almost sure to find people like you anywhere you go. Imagine how much competitive edge this would give you over sellers who don’t like books.

Use your love and knowledge of the books to good outcome of your business. Books are special to anyone who like books, treat your business accordingly.

Build a stock

Go to yard sales, book fairs, old book shops, regular book shops – and work out a regular supplying source for your selling. You can find a supplier as well. This is very important as you don’t want the book selling interrupted. It is a business for you and it should flow, only then you will get regular profits.

Consult from other book lovers

Build a community of book lovers, both on and offline. You will learn a lot from them. You will learn about different types of books, new writers, literature, trends etc. If you engage any of them in your business you can split tasks with them for better business management.

Locate a good website

Many people rush to this step. Creating a profile or registering with a good website is not enough. You have to find a suitable website which complies with all your requirements. A site specializing in book selling would be ideal. It would take a small amount of time, little research and you will have the best options in front of you.

Buy books in good condition

When it comes to books, their condition matters a lot. Worn out, torn, shabby and poor quality books won’t attract buyers. Make sure that the books you buy and sell are in good conditions. If needed take essential steps to ensure their condition improves.

Sell books on reasonable price – not too high and not too low

The prices of books should be reasonable. Keep your eye open to what the average price is. A book which high rates won’t sell and the one with low price tag won’t bring you profits. Both conditions are utterly useless for you.

If you are a book lover you must have thought about it countless times: how do I make use of all the knowledge about books I have and convert it into money. If that is not the case with you, it certainly was the case with me.

Selling books and making profit out of it isn’t very difficult. However, the bigger the magnitude of your business the more looking after it will require.

Here are some points to remember if you are thinking of starting an online selling books business.

Find a book selling websites

There are hundreds if not thousands of websites operating in the market today. Online selling is at its peak. In the midst of that it is very crucial to your business, especially on initial stages that you find a good and product book selling website. Different websites have their different way of working; find the one which is most suitable for you. It would take an hour or two to get well informed about multiple websites; you can pick out some of the best of them and get registered with them.

Find a good supply source

By supplier I don’t necessarily mean a person who supplies book. It can be any source which regularly provides you with books. Since you are going to make a living out of book selling, it is important that the flow of book selling remains active.

Pay extra attention to this step, as it can be difficult to build a good stock with books. It is easier with clothes, books and electronics etc. But as a book lover you would know how hard it is to find good books.

Involve other book lovers

This is a further enhancement of the above mentioned step. Getting book enthusiast involved in your company will teach you a lot. Firstly you knowledge will increase, secondly you will find more sources to get books from. If you take it one step further, you can distribute tasks and manage your business more effectively.

Quality and condition of the books

Make sure that the books you buy are in good condition. Worn out books will make you and your business look bad. People love books and prefer to buy ones that are in good condition. If necessary, you can go through the process of cleaning and binding the books to make them look better.


Prices of the books you are selling shouldn’t be too high or even too low. The prices should be reasonable. By reasonable I mean such that a buyer would feel comfortable spending and you will get decent money out of it. That would create a win-win situation.
