Trade - Credit

By trading in your used books to Paperback Exchange, you receive 70% off cover price of used books and 25% off new books.


  • When trading books, we total the original list price on your trade-ins (most books have this price printed on them by the publisher), this is your “trade-credit” amount.
  • You will receive a minimum trade-credit of $5.95 for each book that you trade in if the original list price is below that amount except for Children/YA titles and Harlequin/Silhouette series which will receive a minimum trade-credit of $3.95.
  • Trade-credit allows you to purchase books with an original list price up to the amount of your trade-credit balance at the reduced rates of 70% off used books and 25% off new books.
  • Unused Trade-Credit can be saved for future visits and do not expire.
  • Trade-credit can be shared and is transferable.
