Development of this site has been discontinued due to the launches of similar services (Facebook Marketplace, for example).
TomeTrader.net is currently only available to students of
Texas A&M University in College Station. We'd love to
expand in the future if it is a success, but we are remaining
local for now.
The intent of TomeTrader.net
is to facilitate the exchange of textbooks between students of the same university
so that students can avoid new/used bookstores altogether. In many ways, TomeTrader.net
is like half.com. We don't keep an inventory of books, we merely connect people
who have books with those who need them. The annoying thing about half.com,
however, is that often you'll wind up buying a book from someone across the
country when there are plenty of people on your own campus who'd like to sell
theirs. TomeTrader.net connects you with students of your school who
have the book you're looking for, so you can make the transaction on your own
campus without having to wait for a possibly unreliable online seller to get
it to you via snail mail.
unlike most other used book sites, TomeTrader.net doesn't
charge any usage fees and we don't take a cut of your sale.
Registration is free, the information we require from you
is minimal, and we seek to keep the site simple to use and
fast. Also, no private information is made available to other
people until a deal has been made, and then only the information
you want. Once you've agreed to a transaction, how you exchange
the book and payment is entirely between you and the person
you're dealing with.
So go ahead, register
and start listing those books you don't want anymore! And then start searching
for the ones you need...if you find what you're looking for, chances are you'll
save time and money.
Thanks for visiting
and tell your friends! The more people that know about it, the more selection
there will be!
