Books4Exchange.com was launched in August 1999. A collaborative project between EDge Interactive and the Science Undergraduate Society of McGill University, the site is designed to help you buy and sell your textbooks. Indeed, over the last five years, the site has helped over 10,000 students.
And yet with more than a million full- and part-time university and college students in Canada and tens times that number in the US, we feel like we have only scratched the surface. Sadly, many students either pay exorbitant rates to sell their books, or the books simply go unsold. Our vision is that every student should at least have the option to sell their books.
With this goal in mind we sat down with Places4Students.com. Places has quickly become the online leader in providing university and colleges with the highest quality off-campus housing service. Working together we hope to provide a valuable service with new features.
The new Books4Exchange.com has a number of new features, including:
In order to allow us to reach more students and continue to develop more features on Books4Exchange.com, there is a small service fee for books posted on the site. Half of this fee will go to student life at participating schools (click here for more information on how your school can get involved).
We look forward to continuing to help you buy and sell your textbooks,
