First a few caveats:
I'm passing this on at the request of our vendor/partner who would
like to grow his business, and I feel like there would be enough
interest given how often it comes up on the list - please do not send
queries to me.
We have been working with Andrew and his company for a few months and
we find it to be going well - I mean, we're not making a fortune or
anything but it's a nice convenient way of selling used/withdrawn books.
Second, at this stage he is really only able to service new library
clients from Portland and points south. Sorry for that, but just his
I'm copy/pasting his blurb and info below - please direct all

DB Commerce LLC
Library Consignment Program.
I have been an online book dealer for over 5 years. You may have seen
people like me at your sales using hand held devices to scan book,
DVDs and CDs.
Using this technology, we can purchase books at your price and
instantly look up the active market prices and evaluate profit margins
with current market price and competition, which gives us a huge
advantage when purchasing books. Using these tools, we have seen our
profits double every year.
We would like to work with libraries and share this advantage, which
will allow you to make more money for your organization.
We have found that after shipping cost and market place fees, we are
able to split the profits 50/50 and this will add 20-65 percent more
profits to your book sale.
We offer a 90-day trial period to use our software and start receiving
monthly checks, so we can prove that our system works for you. After
the 90-day period we offer a year contract at no cost to you.
We provide our software at no cost to you, which is very easy to use
and user friendly.
All you need is a computer with windows 10 and a bar code scanner.
We are now working with over 20 libraries in the local NH area.
Simply scan or type in the barcode or ISBN number and the software
will accept or reject the books according to our customized sales plan
that we will make up for your sales goals. Set the books aside and we
will pick them up monthly or weekly depending on your volume.
If you have a large volume of books to scan at the beginning, we can
come by and help you get caught up. When we come to install the
software and offer training.
Once we pick up the books our team will take over from there. We will
list all books within 2-3 business days after pick-up. We will do all
the listing and grading of the books and will be selling on up to 6
online market places. Our software allows us to sell on predetermined
price strategies and we will customize with you to allow for the
highest profit for your books. This allows us to change book prices
hourly going up or down with current market prices and repricing
according to your sale plan. Once the book is sold we do all the
shipping and ship daily.
Every month on the 15th you will get a check for your share of the
profits with a monthly sales report.
If you would like more information, please email me.
We would be more than willing to provide references of the libraries
we are currently working with.
If this sounds of an interest to you, I can provide a demo and discuss
any questions you may have. Thank you for your time and we look
forward to helping you maximize your returns.
