There is something called Retail and Wholesale buyback, which will determine how much money we buy books back for.
·Retail buyback is when we are buying the book for the store and we will restock our shelves with these limited quantities. There are only a certain number of copies that we can buy at this price; you might have come just after we fulfilled our need for that title.
·Wholesale buyback is when we buy books to send directly to our wholesaler to have the titles shelved in our warehouse to be used at a later date. The price for these books is based on a national wholesale value, which is determined by calculating the need for a particular title, the copyright date, and more.
