What is the Textbook Buyback scheme?
The Textbook Buyback scheme allows students to purchase any required textbooks and then return them afterward to reclaim a portion of their paid amount.
To do this, students can use the Textbook Buyback scheme to list their textbook to sell through Alibris and then receive the payment.
