Do you have piles of books collecting dust? Allow us to help you empty your shelves and earn money with our simple three-step process:

How It Works

Step 1

Use Empty Shelves software free of charge to scan books in your inventory and see if the book should be sold online, kept on the shelf, or donated/recycled.

Step 2

You get the boxes and we will send prepaid shipping labels so you can easily ship us your accepted books. Choose whether you want to receive $2.00 per book up front, or wait until they sell and receive 50% of the net profits.

Step 3

Once the books are received, we handle the listing, pricing, storage, order fulfillment, and customer service. The only thing you need to do is collect your cash.

Who this is for:

- Thrift Stores
- Libraries
- Book Sales
- Estate Sales
- Individuals with large book collections

Case Study

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does this cost?

Not a single penny! We provide the software, and the shipping labels free of charge. All you have to do is provide the books. We’ll take it from there.

Where are these books being sold?

Our primary outlet for selling used books is through Amazon, although we also use a variety of other eCommerce platforms. Additionally, we sell many textbooks directly to wholesale companies. These options help us maximize the profits from your books.

Which commission model is right for me?

We offer two commission models:

Option 1: $2.00 per book up front - ideal for those who want quick cash.

Option 2: 50% of net profits, paid out monthly - this will typically result in higher overall payouts, but may take longer. Good things come to those who wait!

With either option, we cover the costs of shipping them to our warehouse, and split it out upon reconciliation.
