Decide to sell. Your recent scans are saved right on your main screen, in case you want to go back and review the offers. When you are ready to sell, just click the Sell button and you will be taken to the site provided to complete your transaction. Depending on the offer you choose, there may be limitations or exclusions, so just be sure to check carefully.
Scan the book. Before manually entering the lengthy ISBN, try the scan feature. You need to get pretty close to the bar code with the ISBN and may need to give it a few seconds to focus and recognize it. Not all scanned books are easily recognized, but it is worth a shot before manually entering the number. There may be times when no one is willing to purchase the book, but you can always try again later.
