Flipsy Introduces BookSeller Android App

(PORTLAND, OR) today introduced the new BookSeller Android app, which makes it faster and easier than ever for professional booksellers to determine book market values, connect with buyers and sell books for the highest price. BookSeller turns Android smartphones into ISBN scanning devices and instantly displays private market values plus trade-in and buyback offers from dozens of book buyers. Available on the Google Play Store, BookSeller is free to download and does not require in-app purchases. 

To use BookSeller, users follow simple prompts to scan International Standard Book Numbers (ISBNs). BookSeller then displays the current private market value of the book, based on what it is currently selling for via online markets such as Craigslist and Ebay. The app also displays real-time trade-in and buyback offers from dozens of online vendors. If a seller sees an offer they like, the app connects them with the buyer to complete the transaction.

BookSeller promises to become an indispensable tool for professional booksellers because it helps appraise rare and used books at a glance, according to current market conditions, and also helps booksellers generate greater profits by locating the highest-paying buyers in seconds, said Flipsy Chief Technology Officer Morgan Macarthur. BookSeller is a fast, easy-to-use and powerful tool every professional bookseller should have in their pocket. Best of all, it's completely free.

BookSeller displays real-time offers from dozens of online book retailers in an easy-to-understand comparison table so booksellers can quickly identify the best offers. BookSeller compares multiple varia bles, including total price, shipping and payout method (check, store credit, gift card, PayPal, etc.) so booksellers can take advantage of the best available offer. 

BookSeller is available for free from the Google Play Store:
