Books that do not meet our quality standards won’t be accepted for sellback. Read our sellback standards to determine if your items are acceptable for sellback with ValoreBooks.

Please do not send in books that you do not own, or that you have rented from ValoreBooks or another rental provider. ValoreBooks is not responsible for rental late fee charges related to these books.

Please do not send in items that ValoreBooks does not currently support for sellback. These items will be confiscated.


When preparing your sellback items for shipment, please ensure that:

  • Your items are packaged safely and securely in order to avoid damage in transit.
  • Your package does not exceed 70 lbs.
  • The packing slip provided by ValoreBooks is included INSIDE your sellback package along with your sellback items. If you have multiple boxes, please include a copy of the packing slip in each box.
  • You use the prepaid shipping label provided by ValoreBooks. Shipments that do not use these labels will not be tracked.

All sellback shipments should be sent in within 14 days of confirming your sellback quote. Any items that arrive at our warehouse 30 days after your sellback order date may be canceled or re-quoted. ValoreBooks is not responsible for items that are lost or damaged in the mail. If you would like to insure your package, you may do so at your own expense.

By sending in your sellback items to ValoreBooks, you agree to release us from any claim as to the products, the data stored in the products, or any information on any media used in conjunction with the products.

After sending in your sellback items to ValoreBooks, any requests for item returns may not be honored.


Once we receive your sellback items we will evaluate them to ensure each meets our quality standards. This process may take up to 7 business days. Your sellback items may be re-quoted or rejected for any of the following reasons:

  • The item does not meet our sellback standards.
  • The condition of the item is materially different than originally specified
  • The ISBN quoted does not match what was sent
  • The item is determined to be counterfeit, fraudulent, or stolen
  • Items listed on your packing slip were not included in the package received at our warehouse
  • Items were received in our warehouse after the 30-day quote period and therefore are subject to a new market price

Please note that each item in a sellback order may be processed, evaluated, and reported on separately. If you have multiple items in your sellback order, you may receive payment for each one separately.


If one or more of your sellback items fails to meet our sellback standards, we will notify you via email and will update your order details page. You will be given 14 days from the time of this notification to request that your items be returned to you. To submit this request, please use the contact us form or email If we do not hear from you within 14 days, your items will be recycled.  Rejected items typically take 30 to 45 days to be returned once requested.


Once your items have been processed and evaluated, payment will be issued within 14 business days. ValoreBooks currently supports two payment options:

Check: Once a check has been issued, you can expect to receive your payment within 7-14 business days. Checks will be sent through USPS first class mail to the address you listed on your sellback order.
