You can sell us a book even if you didn’t buy it at the WOU Bookstore, but you can get more money if you have a receipt from us. With your receipt, you may get up to 50% back of the textbook’s retail value.
BUYBACK IS NOT GUARANTEED. We buy the books we need for the following term, and we also buy for an outside used book company (which sets prices at national market value, usually much less than 50% of retail). The titles we buy are based on supply and demand at our university and in the textbook market. If your book is in demand, there is a set number of books we will buy back for that title. Once we meet our quota, we stop buying that title for that term. Sometimes a book becomes an old edition and we can’t take it. Sometimes you simply need to check back another term.
