How It Works

Textbook Takeover was built so that students can buy and sell textbooks with other students. Textbook Takeover presents an opportunity for students selling textbooks to make more money and students buying textbooks to save more money. We at Textbook Takeover are dedicated to reducing the cost of college education; as a result, we have chosen to leave our service completely free.

Watch this short tutorial video for an explanation of the Textbook Takeover service.

Step One: Create An Account- You can create an account by using your email, Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.

Step Two: Post A Textbook- Posting a textbook is fast and easy through the app interface. Just scan the barcode on the back of your book and set your price. You can also manually enter the information.

Step Three: Purchase A Textbook- If you see a textbook you need there are two options to pursue, the first choice is accepting the listed price, the second being a negotiation. If you agree to the listed price, then message the seller to meet up and pay cash, or proceed through the interface to pay via credit card and have the book shipped. If you choose to negotiate with the seller, after both parties have agreed on the price, proceed with the payment option of your choice.
