🔙 Buy - Send it back

What is the send it back purchase option? 🧐

As per the name, you get to buy your book and send it back at the end of the semester! With the send it back option, the goal is for you to pay less now, but also to avoid any stress stemming from having to sell you book at the end of the semester.

Can I use highlighter or take some notes inside? 📝

Yes! As long as your annotations are clean and subtle, and that the highlighting is not exaggerated, it's allowed! Put simply, you can highlight a few important words or phrases, but no complete pages or paragraphs. If you aren't sure, contact us! πŸ˜‰

What happens if I lose or damage the book? 👎🏼

In those events, you'll have to pay the balance to cover for the full price of the book, as well as a administrative fee. For example, if you paid 50$ at the beginning of the semester for your send it back book, and that this book is worth 100$ brand new, you'll have to pay a 50$ balance as well as a small 10$ charge that acts as the administrative fee.

What are the criteria to qualify a book as "damaged"? ⚰️

  • A book that does not respect the rules about highlighting and note taking ;
  • A book with torn or missing pages ;
  • A book that has been wet ;
  • A severely folded cover ;

If ever you send us back a damaged book, we'll contact you to let you know about the situation and you will have 30 days to come and get it to our warehouse. We will also be able to send it over mail to your charge.

And what if my return is late? ⏰

We'll do our very best to remind you at the end of the semester. Yet, if you are late, a prorated penalty will be applied according to the number of late days. It's pretty much like it used to work for movie rentals! πŸ™ƒ

What happens if I wish to keep the book forever? 🧾

No worries, the Purchase - Send it Back option was thought with these situations in mind. If you want to keep your book, just send us an email before the due date at [email protected]. We'll simply charge the remaining balance to pay on your book compared to the new market price. ✌🏼

For example :
You paid $ 30 for your book in Purchase - Send it Back at the start of the session.
The value of the new book at that time is $ 100.
If you want to keep your book, we'll charge you the balance of $ 70 ($ 100- $ 30)

Β 

* a management fee of $ 5 will also be applied.

📱 E-Textbooks
