Read more, pay less, save trees

Save money with swaps

Bookswap's idea is to maximize the swapper's financial gain. You can get the same book from Bookswap many times cheaper than at the store.

99% less emissions

The greenhouse gas emissions produced by a single book during its life cycle correspond to a car journey of 7.3 kilometres. 99% of this footprint comes from the paper and printing industry, which makes the swapping of used books an extremely environmentally friendly form of consumption.

Save trees with swaps

A lot of the books we buy from the bookstore stand actually useless on various bookshelves. Bookswap finds these books, so the paper industry no longer does not have to cut down trees to produce books that are just waiting for a new home.

Our services and solutions

On our website, you can offer everyone books you no longer need. If someone orders a book from you, you will earn a right to order a desirable book from the shelves of thousands of swappers.
In addition to the swapping fee of every transaction, it is possible to set up a number of side-products - booking fee, bumping, credit sales for additional swaps, advertising, and much more.

Swapping fee

Every transaction includes a swap fee. The fee is significantly cheaper than buying a book in a store what makes Bookswap a great channel for getting new books.


Paid extra credits

To order a book, you can use the points you earn when you send the books yourself. However, if you run out of points, you can buy extra credit.


Paid notifications

Most popular books can sometimes be ordered only by the quickest swappers. Paid SMS notifications are helpful to let you know when a favourite book is offered.


Featured books

Often, the books that are visible on the front page or come out better in searches are ordered. If you want to give away more books and earn more ordering points, you can use premium displaying options for your offers.

Advertising

Book publishers are a very competitive industry. Every day they publish thousands of new books and fight for readers' attention. They can get it through Bookswap.

Delivery

Thanks to Bookswap, thousands of packages travel every day in different countries. Commissions from parcel companies help Bookswap develop its business.
