In the future, things we buy online will instantly materialize in our living rooms, but until that day, we ship. At UsedBooksSell, we keep shipping and handling prices as simple and as low as possible: 3.88 for Books via Media Mail, and 5.99 for non-books via Priority Mail. We do this by taking advantage of the most efficient shipping methods, and packing with care using top notch packing materials.

We’re not just Ebay sellers, we’re buyers too, and our experiences shopping online have helped us come up with a few shipping policies that we feel give our customers the best experience possible.


We ship our books in sturdy boxes, not padded envelopes. This keeps our books from being creased or bent in transit.

Combined Shipping

We keep all our merchandise on hand in our Manhattan office. That means combining shipping is easy. Multiple auction wins will only be charged for shipping once, as long as all auctions are paid for at the same time.  It’s the only way logistically we can combine shipping.

In order to help people take advantage of this policy and save a bundle on shipping, we require payment within 7 days of winning an auction. This gives our customer plenty of time to shop around before checking out.

Since we can only use Media Mail to send books (post office regulation) purchases that include other items will be charged the higher rate for priority mail.


We ship within one business day of receiving cleared payment.  The books get restless if they are made to wait, so we do post office runs daily.


If you have questions about your order, or didn’t receive the item you expected, please contact us! We are proud of our 100% positive feedback and aim to keep it that way. We accept 14 day returns with but a single caveat, we need to receive returns in the same condition as when they were sent out. That means New In Box and Factory Sealed merchandise needs to still be sealed. Seems fair, right?

It’s no secret where our shipping policies came from, they are how we want to be treated when we make a purchase online. If you have any questions or comments regarding these policies, feel free to contact us and let us know!
