Due to the large volume of counterfeit textbooks entering the United States, we have implemented stringent policies and procedures to eliminate the possible introduction of counterfeit textbooks into the U.S. marketplace through the BooksValue website. A comprehensive watch list has been compiled of known counterfeit textbooks.
If you are a seller of textbooks which originate outside the United States, then you will be subject to special investigations and examinations to determine the legitimacy of your textbook(s). Before you place an order on the BooksValue website, you must comply with the following procedures:
A. An advance copy of the textbook(s) you wish to sell must be sent to our facility for inspection. Upon inspection, you will be notified if your textbook is acceptable and an order can be placed. If the textbook(s) is deemed counterfeit, you will be notified and the textbook(s) will be destroyed per industry standards and the copyright and trademark laws of the United Sates to avoid the possibility of introduction into the U.S. marketplace.
B. A legible sales receipt clearly showing the name and address of your source/supplier. The sales receipt must be sent along with the advance copy of the textbook. If an advance copy arrives without a legible sales receipt, the textbook will not be inspected. You may request the textbook be returned at your expense.
C. A written statement indicating you have the legal right and ownership to sell this textbook(s) to BooksValue and that you obtained your textbooks from a legal source without knowledge that your textbook(s) are counterfeit. Your statement should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with reference to each title and quantity you wish to sell. A copy of the statement is to be sent with the order upon acceptance.
Anti-Dumping Policy for Bulk Buyers/Sellers :
Effective April 20th 2008, Bulk Buyers/Sellers should contact us in advance with a list of books they wish to sell. In general no Seller should send in any given title in excess of 10 copies in a 90 day period. Any exceptions to this policy must be granted in advance in writing. Approval for exceptions can be obtained by first sending a list of books wishing to be sold to email@example.com. If at any time an order is found to be in violation of our dumping policy, then these books will be set aside for later processing or returned to the Seller at their expense- at our discretion.
Condition Grading Disputes:
It is our policy to hold all orders for a period of 4 calendar days where an exception is identified with an order. This period of time is set aside in case of disputes in grading. An email acknowledgement will be sent upon receipt of orders indicating a review of exceptions may be checked by clicking on the Order Status page of the website. If you dispute our grading of your order, you must notify us within the 4 day holding period for further consideration. Thereafter, all grading conditions are final.
