Online Textbook Buy-back Comparison

We just "sold back" some of Elyse's textbooks from last semester.  I checked four online vendors who "buy-back" used textbooks, for comparison.  The following table shows what I found.  The first four rows are the books we sold, with the price quote from each of four vendors. Row five is the total offer made by each vendor.  

Amazon was the clear winner.  Because Amazon offers just about anything one would need to purchase, I am not concerned that payment will come in the form of an Amazon gift card, rather than cash.

Vendor pays shipping?

All four vendors' websites were easy to navigate.  All four offered free shipping of the books to their location.   Once we accepted Amazon's offer, we needed only to print out the shipping label they provided, pack the books in a box, attach the label, and mail the books by the due date.  We should receive payment once they are received and processed.  The process was simple.
