Getting Paid When Selling


Scholarlyy will send you the money for your books through PayPal following the campus runner exchange. This will come both through a text message with a link in it. The link will allow you to claim the money regardless of whether or not you have a PayPal account.

If you do not already have an account with PayPal, you will be prompted to create one in order to collect your funds. Signing up is incredibly easy and takes less than 5 minutes. It beats waiting weeks on a check!

PayPal is a mobile payments platform used for electronic money transfers. We use it because it allows us to pay you 10x faster than mailing a check. It’s easy, paperless, and is ridiculously fast.

It also keeps our campus runners from having to carry cash on them for all of their pickups. We didn’t want our campus runners to feel like Sonic waitresses on roller skates carrying change belts.

No, you are not required to have an account setup when using Scholarlyy. However, in order to collect your money, you’ll need to create an account. It takes less than 5 minutes.

General


Yes, our entire mobile platform for textbooks is built using SMS text messaging. We have found the students prefer to sell their textbooks as quickly as possible, and texting presents the best solution for doing so. From the first text message to sell us your books to texting your campus runner, it’s all handled in one easy texting conversation. However, for special situations, you can use our online form to sell your books as well.
Currently, we are at these schools:

 

  1. University of Arkansas
  2. University of Florida
  3. University of Kansas
  4. Kansas State University
  5. University of Missouri
  6. University of Missouri – Kansas City
  7. University of Nebraska

The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. Every textbook has it’s own ISBN number to quickly identify the book’s title, author, publisher, etc…

We ask for the ISBN # because it allows us to look up the necessary information to properly price your textbook. Without it, we would have no idea what you’re trying to sell us!

If you’re struggling to locate the ISBN number, it’s on the back of the book and looks like this:

isbn

You always get to choose whether to Accept or deny your package. Occasionally, we may not be able to buy certain books, or may have to offer very little. Pricing is based solely on supply and demand for a specific book, and is usually out of our control.
If the price isn’t quite what you were hoping for, it’s most likely because a new edition for that book has either come out or is coming out.

Whenever a new edition takes the place of an older book, the value will drop significantly. So be sure to try and sell your books as quickly as possible because of the value that can be lost in holding onto them for too long!

How Scholarlyy Compares


Texting, campus runners, and speed of getting paid.

We handle anything and everything through a simple text message. Of course our prices are crazy good as well, but our mobile texting platform makes us the easiest and most convenient textbook service in the industry.

With other marketplaces out there, they’ll require you to ship books in order to get paid. Find a box, drive to the UPS store, wait in line…. Then the shipping typically takes anywhere from 5-10 business days to arrive. The service has to make sure it passes inspection, and then when they get around to it, they’ll send you out a check in the mail. Overall, this process can take up to 3 weeks to get your money.

At Scholarlyy, we handle everything in a matter of minutes. Once you accept our offer, we patch you through to a student rep called a campus runner that will contact you to find a time and place to meet to pick up your books. Once they pick up your books, you’ll be sent the money through PayPal, same day. Boom.

Price. Laziness.

At the campus bookstore, you’ll wait in line for hours to ultimately get ripped off. The bookstore is notorious for offering pocket change for valuable books. Whatever you do, make an informed decision!

Every semester, we get students upset that they didn’t find our about us sooner. Instead, they sold their books to the bookstore and got cents on the dollar. We would’ve paid them 4x what the bookstore was paying. Even if you don’t use us, at least be sure you’re not getting ripped off!

 

Campus Runners


A student representative hired by Scholarlyy to pick up books on campus. Their role specifically is to text you when you’ve accepted a deal with us, and they’ll find a time and place to pick up your books that works best for you.

Be sure to bring all of the books that you’re selling to the exchange. The campus runner will check each book’s ISBN number to be sure they match with your submitted textbook package. They will also be sure that the condition of the book matches. Once they confirm, they’ll have you sign a receipt to prove that they in fact picked your books up.

After the exchange, the campus runner will notify the Scholarlyy system that the deal was completed. We will then send your money to you through PayPal.

Yes. Part of the reason we are able to offer such great pricing is because our campus runners only operate within a mile or so radius.
Not yet, but we are working on this capability. We’d suggest having a friend meet with the Campus Runner instead if you don’t want to do it. It’s extremely fast and easy, but we understand your reservations!
 

Misc


We currently only buy books from students looking to sell. We do not resell our inventory. At some point, we may decide to do so, but it’s not quite in the works yet.
We will buy any book that still has value in the marketplace. The newer the book, the better chance you have of getting a great deal. If it’s an older edition, we probably won’t be able to offer much. But feel free to submit every textbook you own and check the prices because you never know.
We are a Kansas City, Missouri based startup that is founded on the mission of helping college students. We were founded by Daniel C. Segalo, MBA back in 2013, but recently changed our name from Kampusphere to Scholarlyy. We employ roughly 80 college students at universities across the country and are one of Kansas City’s fastest growing startups. We are now a product of Betablox, one of the midwest’s top business incubators.
