Hi all

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anything but it's a nice convenient way of selling used/withdrawn books.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  
own limitations.

I'm copy/pasting his blurb and info below - please direct all  
questions to Andrew - his email and phone # are at the bottom of this  

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.
