How Sellback Works (A Brief Overview)

  1. You tell us which books you want to sell.
  2. We check all participating schools across the country to find a school currently buying the title(s).
  3. You bring your books to the Hole in the Wall and we buy them for McMaster or other schools.
  4. We notify you by Email twice a semester to remind you of the Buyback season and to let you know how much you can get for your books.

Remember you can also sell your books to other students directly using the used book classifieds.
